3/324 Cannonbarn Farmhouse


Farmhouse. C16 and C17. Stone rubble, partly colourwashed and rendered, Delabole
slate roof gabled at ends, formerly thatched. 3 stone stacks, 2 rendered, 1
projecting with set-offs at the left gable end. The original plan was probably 3-
room and through passage of which 1 heated room and the passage survive. In the C17
the house was rebuilt beyond the passage under a higher roofline, with a hall heated
from a stack backing on to the passage and a heated inner room. The inner room is
gabled out to the front and the rear, the rear gable may represent the stub of a
wing. A first floor doorway suggests that there was originally a rear projection or
wing to the rear of the hall. In the C18 or C19 the rear right wing was probably
truncated and re-roofed as a 2-storey lean-to which includes a woodstore, dairy and
stair. The rear door of the through passage is blocked and the floor level has been
raised. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:2 window front, gabled to the front on the right-
hand, the gable slate-hung to the first floor. C20 glazed porch to the front door
which leads into the passage. Further C20 entrance on front at left with a late C20
lean-to porch. The hall and inner room have 4-light C17 granite mullioned windows
with king mullions and hollow-chamfered subsidiary mullions. The hoodmoulds have
carved label stops, the hall window label stops carved with "R.P.". Diamond leaded
panes to the stone windows. The hall window has 1 small lead casement which is
probably C17. The first floor windows are 2-light C20 casements with glazing bars.
Interior The ground floor room left has 3 massive chamfered cross beams, probably
C16, with diagonal stops and chamfered joists with ogee stops. The C20 fireplace may
conceal an earlier lintel. The narrow passage has large unmoulded beams and the
blocked rear door has a chamfered lintel. A C20 partition to the rear of the hall
forms a passage to the inner room. C20 fireplace to the hall, possibly concealing
earlier jambs and lintel. The inner room has large fireplace with bead-moulded jambs
and lintel. 2 good moulded stopped timber doorways: 1 to the inner room (ground
floor) and 1 to the first floor. A chamfered stopped doorway leads to the room above
the dairy and suggests that there was a former 2-storey rear wing or projection.
Principals visible in first floor rooms appear to be straight. Roofspace not
