12/187 Partridge Farmhouse and adjoining
Farmhouse and adjoining farmbuilding. Circa early/mid C17, probably a remodelling of
an earlier building. Colourwashed rendered cob and stone; thatched roof, hipped at
left end, gabled at right end, half-hipped to end of rear wing; projecting right end
stack, axial stack at junction with outbuilding, both with brick shafts.
Plan: Unusual in that there is no sign of an original cross or through passage and
the third room of the single depth main block is a shippon. Rear centre wing at
right angles to main range. A C20 cross passage has been introduced between the 2
right hand rooms of the main which may be the hall and inner room of a 3 room and
through passage arrangement, the passage and lower end rebuilt as a shippon, probably
in the C17 (mullioned window to shippon). The rear wing, probably in origin a dairy
with accommodation over, is at least C17 in origin, thus the position of the C17
entrance remains a mystery. Rear lean-to with concrete tile roof in angle between
rear wing and right hand room of main block is either a C20 addition or remodelling
of an earlier structure.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 plus 3 window front, the 2 windows to the
shippon at the left end. The domestic end of the range has a C20 lean-to porch which
formerly gave directly into the right hand room but now leads into a C20 cross
passage. C20 timber casements, 3 to the first floor and 3 to the ground floor. The
shippon, to the left, has a door with a timber lintel flanked by a small mullioned
window to the right and a small square unglazed window to the left.
Interior: The right hand room has a chamfered cross beam with flattened pyramid
stops; C20 fireplace concealing earlier features with bread oven. The left hand room
has an ovolo-moulded cross beam and C20 fireplace concealing earlier features.
Chamfered stopped C17 doorframe leads from top of stairs to first floor room in wing.
Roof: Roofspace not inspected, principal rafters visible upstairs appear to be
