1/62 Culm Davy Farmhouse
- II
Detached house, formerly a farmhouse. Late C15 or early C16 with later extensions
and alterations. Plastered rubble, probably with some cob; gable end slate roof.
Originally a 3-room, through-passage plan house of jointed cruck construction, the
higher end to the right of the passage. The hall and service end were open to the
roof for the roof timbers here are smoke-blackened; the inner room appears always
to have been unheated or of 2 storeys (or both) and divided from the hall by a
partition that rises from ground floor level to the apex of the roof. Floors and
stacks inserted in late C16 or C17 : hall heated by axial stack backing on to
passage; service end heated by an end stack, which is now axial by virtue of a
later extension at this end. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: 5-window range. All casement windows, including 4 to the ground
floor, are C20.
Interior : (inaccessible at time of the survey visit; the details of the interior
given here are drawn from a summary is the D.C.C. Sites and Monuments Register of a
letter by Peter Beacham, Historic Buildings Officer, ref. 23/7). Massive roof
timbers on jointed crucks, with wind braces, the central truss (presumably over the
hall) with arched braces. Closed truss between hall and inner room, timber framed
with wattle and daub infilling. A pointed arched doorway pierces the partition.
