Town Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C17, some C19 remodelling with refenestration. Rubble and cob,
roughcast; gabled corrugated asbestos roof; 2 brick ridge stacks and a rendered
lateral stack at front capped by a brick shaft.
Plan: probably originally a 3-room and through-passage plan, large inner room to
left with an axial stack, hall with front lateral stack and an integral hall bay of
2 storeys, lower end to right rebuilt. The through-passage now gone. Inner room to
left altered C19 with the insertion of a door opening and partitioning to form a
narrow lobby out of which rises a C19 staircase, the original staircase to the house
now removed.
A C19 service room at the lower (right) end with an axial stack and unheated store
beyond it. Outbuilding added at higher end.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical front of 3:3:1 windows, 2- and 3-light late C19
casements, mostly with horizontal glazing bars. Door opening to left into the
former inner room with a late C19 half-glazed door, door opening to right into lower
room with plank door.
Interior: on the ground floor large chamfered ceiling cross beams with straight-out
stops, hall with simple framed ceiling; plank and muntin screen between hall and
inner room, presently obscured by C20 partitioning, blocked remains of a doorway.
All fireplaces blocked with C20 grates inserted.
Roof: evidence of a raised cruck seen in the roof, trusses with 2 rows of purlins.
