II


Farmhouse. Circa early C16 origins, remodelled in the late C16/early C17, some
alterations of the mid C19. Colourwashed rendered cob; slate roof, gabled at ends ;
left end stack, 2 axial stacks.
Plan: 3 room and cross passage plan, lower end to the left, hall stack backing on to
the passage. Single-storey rear lean-to with corrugated iron roof, rear left stair
projection. The origins of the house are a late medieval open hall of jointed cruck
construction with 3 sooted roof trusses in the centre of the range; the right end of
the range may always have been storeyed, the left end could be a C17 rebuilding. The
house was refenestrated in the C19 when a stair was introduced into the passage. The
roof, presumably originally thatched, has been raised and a new roof added above the
medieval trusses.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Long 6-window front elevation with a gabled C19 porch to left
of centre into the former passage, additional C20 porch with lean-to corrugated iron
roof on front at left. Variety of C19 and C20 timber sashes and casements with
glazing bars.
Interior: Very unspoiled with a number of interesting features. The lower end room
has an open fireplace with a bread oven and hearth window ; chamfered cross beam and
a fixed bench on the partition wall with the passage. The bench is supported on
timber brackets and has a shaped C17 bench end and panelled bench back with fielded
panels below an order of cable moulding. The former passage has a C19 tiled floor
and stick baluster stair with a turned newel post. The hall has been divided by an
axial rear passage and has 2 deeply chamfered but plastered over crossbeams and a C19
cast iron and tiled grate. Deeply chamfered step-stopped axial beam to inner room.
Probably C17 timber stair in rear stair projection.
Roof: 3 heavily sooted jointed cruck medieval smoke-blackened roof trusses below a
later roof.
