SS 71 SW
6/12 East Cheldon Barton
- II
Barton farmhouse, now used as holiday home. Probably early C16 but possibly earlier
fabric concealed, remodelled in late C16 and again in C17 with C19 and C20
alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Asbestos slate roof, half-hipped at left
end, hipped to right end, and hipped to rear wing. Rear lateral stone rubble hall
stack with pronounced batter. Stone rubble stack with tapered cap and 2 bread oven
projections at right end. 2 brick stacks to outer flue of rear wing.
Plan: Probably originally a 3-room and through-passage plan, with lower end to right,
but partition on lower side of through-passage has been removed and the front doorway
blocked. Probably in C18 a wing containing principal staircase and second parlour
was added to rear left end creating overall L-shaped plan, with a dairy/service
outshut to rear of hall and lower end. Roof not accessible at time of survey, but
known to be of cruck construction and smoke-blackened, and change in floor levels
suggests possible phased insertion of floors, the hall ceiled possibly as late as mid
C17. The lower end appears to have been largely remodelled in C19 and has a second
staircase running up beside rear wall.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 5 window range. All C20 3-light casements. C19 doorcase to
outer face of rear wing with 6 panelled door, panelled reveals and bracketted hood.
Interior: lower end has stone arch rather than more usual timber lintel and 2 bread
ovens. Good quality C17 hall ceiling with 2 cross ceiling beams and bressumers at
each end which have twin ovolo mouldings. Ovolo moulded hall fireplace lintel. Stud
partition between hall and inner room incorporating good shoulder headed doorway with
chanfered surround. Inner room has rough chamfered axial ceiling beam supported on
timber corbel and jowled post.
Roof not inspected but known to be of good quality late medieval construction.
