4/36 Higher Weddicott Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Probably mid or late C18, modernised in late C19 and again circa 1982.
Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks, 2 with plastered brick chimney
shafts and 1 with a granite ashlar chimney shaft; thatch roof.
Plan: L-shaped building with the main block facing east-north-east, say east. It
has a 2-room plan with central entrance lobby and staircase. The right room is the
parlour and it has a rear lateral stack. The left room has a front projecting
lateral stack in a gable from where the roof extends backwards over the rear block.
The rear room here was formerly an unheated store but circa 1982 this was converted
to a kitchen and given an end stack.
Exterior: 2-window front of C20 casements, the oldest with glazing bars, and disposed
towards the right end. Front doorway is roughly central and contains a plank door
behind a C20 porch now with a monopitch roof of corrugated plastic. Roof is hipped
to right. The left side has a more or less symmetrical 3-window front of similar C20
casements again with a central plank door, this one behind a C20 glass-walled porch.
Interior shows mostly the result of the C19 modernisation but what carpentry detail
exposed suggests an C18 structure. The front parlour (to right) has a crossbeam,
the left room an axial beam. Both have plain soffit chamfers. The beam in the rear
kitchen is boxed in. Roof of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. Much
of the structural timber is elm. The fireplaces are blocked by C19 and C20 grates
and most of the joinery detail is C19. The oldest door, a plank door with
coverstrips, lies between the main and rear blocks at ground floor level.
