SS 71 SE
8/23 Halse Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 origin, floored C17, C18 wing, C20 refenestration. Cob on a rubble
plinth, rendered and colourwashed, gabled and hipped straw-thatched roofs, stacks
with brick and rendered shafts.
Plan: overall L-shaped on plan. The main range has a 3-room and through-passage
plan; the kitchen at the lower right end is heated from a gable end stack; the hall
has a lateral stack at the back and the inner room has a gable end stack. It is
likely that at least part of the house was open to the roof originally since remains
of smoke-blackened timbers are reused in the roof structure of the C18 wing which
was built at the front of the higher left end. Probably in the C19 the back of the
through-passage was blocked and a stair inserted.
Exterior: 1:3 windows, late C20 2- and 3-light casements with glazing bars. 2 door
openings; that into right side of C18 wing with 6-panelled door, top 2 panels
glazed; door opening to right onto former through-passage with plank door. Stack on
right return and lateral stack at rear each with projecting rubble breast, rendered.
Rear elevation with C19 casements.
Interior: hall with chamfered axial ceiling beam, hollow stepped-stops, fireplace
with chamfered wood bressumer ogee-stops. Inner room with similarly-moulded
chamfered axial ceiling beam.
Roof: C18 collar-beam roof, halved and lapped joints, some early smoke-blackened
rafters reused over the wing.
