5/17 Middle Beccott including attached
- lofted stable, and shippon range
extending to west
Farmhouse. Probably early C18, extended and altered in late C18 and C19. Rendered
stone rubble, unrendered to rear. Slate roof, asbestos slate roof to rear. Gable
end rendered stacks, that to left stone rubble with drip and tapered cap, that to
right brick. Additional stone rubble stack with tapered cap to rear service wing.
Hipped asbestos slate roof to stable and shippon range.
Original plan obscured by later alterations. The front main range has a principal
room each side of cross-passage containing integral rear staircase. However,
between the upper side of the cross-passage and right-hand room a massive stone
rubble wall rises to the apex of the roof, suggesting that the right end, which has
an integral rear outshut, was added as a parlour in the late C18 or early C19. To
the rear of the left-hand room and projecting beyond it to the left is the service
range containing kitchen, and former dairy and salting house. This continues to the
left as the long lofted stable and shippon range.
2 storeys. 3-window range, C19/C20 fenestration 2-light casements 6 panes per
light. Ground floor has two 3-light casements flanking plank door. Rear of left
gable-end splays inwards slightly to increase light to the projecting rear service
wing, which has two 2-light casements 3 panes per light to each floor. Stable and
shippon range has 2 loft doors above 6 doorways, the second and fourth openings from
left end infilled and windows inserted.
Interior: left-hand principal room has thin chamfered cross ceiling beam with
straight cut stops, three 2-panelled doors with original hinges to chambers at head
of stairs.
Roof structure intact to original range with 2 pegged trusses with straight
principals and slightly trenched purlins. Roof timbers replaced over service wing.
No sign of smoke-blackening.
