COLDRIDGE BARTON LANE
SS 70 NW
- Coldridge Barton Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, possibly earlier cob, much altered and enlarged in C19, modernised
circa 1970. Mostly plastered cob on rubble footings, some exposed rubble with
brick dressings; stone rubble stacks with C19 and C20 brick tops; thatch roof,
partly replaced with slate.
Main block faces south and appears to derive from a 3-room-and-through-passage plan
house with the service room at the left (west) end. The service room has a
projecting end stack and hall has axial stack backing onto the former passage. The
inner room end appears to have been rebuilt as a crosswing projecting to rear and
now comprising a self-contained 2-room plan cottage with end stacks. A C19 service
wing at right angles to rear of service room. A high rubble wall connects the ends
of the 2 rear blocks thus enclosing a small courtyard. 2 storeys.
Irregular 4-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars to left of an
agricultural building which is built against the gableend of the cottage crosswing.
C20 glazed door with contemporary simple flat-roofed hood is left of centre to
former passage. The hall window is a C20 shallow bay window. There are 2 blocked,
possibly C17, windows one either side of the slightly projecting cottage stack.
All the roofs are gable-ended except the hipped rear end of the cottage. The
cottage and hall (right of front) have thatched roofs whilst the left end of the
front and the service block have slate roofs with lower pitches. The cottage
(east) front has an irregular 2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars
only on the first floor, and a central C19 plank door with narrow overlight over.
Service block has C20 casements with glazing bars and the original C19 disposition
of the windows has been altered in places. At the rear there is an external
flight of stone steps to a first floor doorway. On the inside of the courtyard a
monopitch roof against the cross wall shelters an open-fronted woodstore and the
wall contains a central archway.
Interior is largely the result of C19 and C20 modernisations although the main
block appears to retain the original layout and therefore C17 features may survive
behind the plaster. Only the hall shows C17 features, a richly-moulded and
unstopped crossbeam, a granite fireplace with soffit-chamfered and scroll stopped
oak lintel, and, in the rear wall, a cupboard with panelled doors hung on butterfly
hinges and enriched with carved decorative blind arcades.
The hall roof is inaccessible. Cottage interior not inspected but the owner
reports substantial alterations in C20.
