4/26 Forder Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 and C17, little modernised since. Plastered granite stone rubble
including some cob; granite stacks with plastered chimney shafts; thatch roof.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south-east with inner room at the
right (north-east) end. Both inner room and service end rooms have projecting gable
end stacks and the hall has an axial stack backing onto the passage with newel stair
rising alongside to the front. The passage is now blocked to the rear by a cupboard.
Since no interior inspection was available at the time of this survey it was not
possible to determine the development of the house in detail. Nevertheless it seems
clear that it began as a C16 open hall house maybe heated by an open hearth fire. It
is now 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 4-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars and a
tiny stair window near the middle. Front passage doorway left of centre contains a
C19 plank door with a solid plain frame. The porch maybe as old as the C17; it is
built of granite rubble with seats on the sides and now has a corrugated iron
monopitch roof. The main roof is gable-ended. Rear wall is blind.
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of survey but appears to have
had only minor superficial modernisations since the C17. Also an oak plank-and-
muntin screen was seen at the upper end of the hall. The rest of the fabric is
probably C16 and C17 and the roof may be late medieval.
