LANDKEY Youldon House
SS 63 SW

Farmhouse, now house. Late C15 or early C16, remodelled C17 and with late C18 or
early C19 additions. Colourpainted cob and stone rubble. Slate roof with gable
end to right, hipped at left end. Tall rendered stack at right end and brick stack
to gable end of rear projection. Large lateral hall stack to front with slated
offsets, heightened in brick. Through-passage plan with hall and inner room to
right; this end having been floored over in C17, when a 2-storey right-angled
extension was added to the rear of the hall. In the late C18 early C19 a dairy was
added at the gable end of the inner room and an outshut to rear in the angle of the
main range and rear extension. In C20 the through-passage was moved to the left
with the removal of the screen and the conversion of the lower end, formerly used
as a barn, into part of the dwelling. 2 storeys. 6-window range. C20
fenestration throughout. Slated gabled porch to inserted doorway. Weathered fire
insurance plaque above original doorway. Early C19 slate sundial to front of
lateral stack. Rear extension has slate capping to projecting bread oven and
datestone above with carved but weathered probably 1796 date, possibly recording
rebuilding of stack.
Interior: chamfered and stopped beams to hall and to right-angled rear extension
which has scroll-stopped fireplace lintel. Cambered chamfered lintel to doorway
at head of stairs. Section of plank and muntin screen survives cased in behind
staircase from hall, incorporating old door with slatted grille. The surviving
part of the screen is set at right angles to the through- passage but the grooved
headrail survives of the through-passage hall screen. Heavily smoke-blackened
raised cruck truss above hall with trenched purlins, with early undecorated
plasterwork surviving in the roofspace. Hall and lower end divided by cob
partition to apex of roof. The lower end has 2 raised cruck trusses without signs
of smoke-blackening with collars morticed into the soffits of the blades, the blade
of the truss closest to the hip having been replaced with a straight principal.
