Hackpen Barton


Farmhouse. Possibly late C16, extended in the C17, with later alterations.
Roughcast cob on stone footings; gable end and hipped slate roof.
The original plan is uncertain; it may have been a 3-room, cross passage plan
house, the service end to the right of the passage, heated by an end stack, the hall
to the left, heated (unusually) by an axial stack at the higher end. Both stacks
with brick shafts. These 2 stacks coincide with the only 2 jointed cruck trusses in
the building. The roof is hipped to the left; in the C17 the building was extended
by one large room to the service end, its roof ridge line considerably lower than
that of the main range, and this is heated by an end stack, again with a brick
shaft. If a doorway reset in a nearby outbuilding came originally from the house
(as seems probably), the date of the first build would be C16; the detailing
elsewhere is C17. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: 4-window range; first floor with a small 2-light casement window
to the left, the others of 3 lights, lintels at eaves level : they all look C19.
Ground floor : 3-light windows to hall and inner room, 4-light window to original
service end, all C19 casements. C20 timber porch to passage. The C17 service end
extension with a C20 leanto and one 4-light casement window to ground floor; no
first floor windows. C20 fenestration to both ends.
Rear: irregular fenestration with 5 very small first floor casement windows (to
light rear corridor); C20 windows below; buttressing.
Interior: inner room with unstopped chamfered cross ceiling beam: between this
room and the hall is a doorway with chamfered jambs and cranked lintel, possibly
C16. Hall with deeply chamfered and unstopped cross ceiling beams together with an
axial half beam to the rear. Head beam of higher end screen to passage, with hollow
step stops and rebate for the dismantled screen. Original service end fireplace
with an ovolo moulded lintel that may be a re-used ceiling beam. Service end
extension with axial ceiling beam, chamfered with scroll stops.
Roof: Alcock F2 type jointed crucks where indicated above, the rest later collar-
rafter trusses.
