7/104 Farmhouse now used as store shed
approximately 100 metre north-
west of and on opposite side of
road to Hill Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse, now used for farm storage. Late C15 or early C16, with C17 and C20
alterations. Stone rubble and cob, facade rebuilt in breeze blocks and rendered
over. Corrugated iron roof with gable ends. Large stone rubble stack with drip
and tapered cap, and rounded bread oven projection with slate canopy. Rectangular
on plan, formerly an open hall house which may have extended further south but
following insertion of floors and stack in C17 the house was remodelled as 2-cell
cottage. 2-storeys. 2-window range of 4-paned fixed lights and similar window
with glazing bars removed to right of plank door.
Interior Chimneybreast to bread oven side has been partially in filled but large
chamfered timber lintel with scroll-stopped chamfers survives. The beams at each
end and to the centre also have scroll-stopped chamfers. The replaced roof
covering and purlins are carried on heavily smoke-blackened raised cruck truss with
slightly cranked collar lap-jointed and pegged to the blades which have trenches
for 2-tiers of purlins. The truss was later closed above first floor level with a
lath and plaster partition, almost half of which survives. A large first floor
opening at the lower gable end has been infilled.
