Whitemoor Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably early C17 with later alterations. Random rubble greensand;
gable end slate roof.
Plan: originally a 3-room, through passage plan house, the service end to the right
of the passage. The service end appears to have been substantially rebuilt and
consists now of 2 rooms, the dividing wall probably the original end wall. Perhaps
at about this time the axial stack heating the hall, and formerly backing on to the
passage was substantially widened to accommodate another fireplace with a bake oven.
A vertical masonry joint is visible at this point on the rear wall. This
modification also means that the front doorway became a baffle entry. At some
point, also, the inner room was reduced in size, possibly in the 1930s (the present
occupier understands that the end wall collapsed at this time) : it now leaves an
inner room only 6' wide. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: irregular 2-window range; first floor : to the left a long and
narrow 4-light window, with C19 casement but possibly in an older embrasure; 3-
light casement window to right-hand with 10 leaded panes to outer lights. Ground
floor : 4-light casement window to hall ; two 3-light windows to service end, 1 in
an early C19 frame. Stone outshut to rear.
Interior: both fireplaces are blocked; chamfered lintel evident to hall fireplace.
Hall with 2 ceiling cross beams, chamfered with elongated pyramid stops. Between
the hall and inner room is a plank and muntin screen, chamfered and stopped to both
sides, mitred to hall side only.
To the rear of the hall is a double door with large fielded panels, with a timber or
plaster angel face in half relief above; this looks late C17.
