5/97 Oldfields Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now restaurant. Probably C14 with mid-C17 alterations and
mid-to late C19 alterations and additions. Rendered timber frame of
cruck construction,partly rebuilt and extended in painted brick. Plain
tile roof. 3 bays of former quasi aisled hall with rebuilt cross wing
to south-west and C19 addition to south-east. One storey and attic
with 2-storey additions. North-west front: brick ridge stack off-
centre to left, external brick end stack to left and gabled C19 flush
cross wing to right with toothed-brick eaves cornice and integral brick
end stack. Pair of small gabled eaves dormers with 2-light wooden
casements. 2-window front; C19 three-light wooden casement to left
(central window obscured by climbing plant at time of survey - July 1987).
C20 glazed door to right with C20 lean-to porch. Lean-to addition to
left with 2-light casement to front. Rear wing with toothed brick eaves
cornice and external lateral brick stack. Interior: substantial remains
of former quasi aisled hall. Central base cruck truss (former hall
truss) with continuous chamfer, arched bracing and cambered collar.
Probable former spere truss with large jowl posts, arched bracing and
cambered tie-beam. Roof raised at some time (see evidence of joints
for former arcade plate). First-floor and stack inserted c.1600. Central
ground-floor room has pair of ovolo-moulded ceiling beams with ogee
stops and plain joists. Large open fireplace with large lintel (cut
back at some time). Reordered C17 panelling. Square-panelled framing
in front wall exposed internally. Although much altered much of the
C14 aisled hall survives. The open hall was probably of 2 bays, one
each side of the cruck truss, with at least one bay at the lower end
below the spere truss and at least one upper bay above the hall, possibly
in the form of a wing on the site of the present C19 cross wing. The
present entrance was probably created in the C19. Formerly it would
have been in line with a screens passage below the spere truss. This
is a rare and important survival of an aisled hall with a base cruck
