9/80 Youlditch Farmhouse
House, originally longhouse. Circa mid C17 altered in later C20. Granite rubble
walls. Asbestos slate roof, at lower level over former shippon, gabled to right
hipped to left. One axial rubble stack.
Plan: Small longhouse of shippon to left with through-passage at its right end and
small hall and inner room beyond. The hall stack backs onto the passage, inner room
unheated. Shippon probably extended in C19 and converted to domestic use in later
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with house part to right and
shippon to left. C20 3 light casements with glazing bars- right end of house is
recessed and has small single light C20 window on ground floor. Stone dripmould
above left-hand ground floor window. C20 porch and part-glazed door in front of
passage doorway which is under the lower shippon roof. C19 lean-to in front of long
shippon. At 1st floor of right gable end is C17 single granite-framed light. The
house is built into the hillside at this end.
Interior: Hall has granite-framed fireplace with unchamfered lintel and roughly
chamfered jambs. Stone oven in right-hand side. Fairly insubstantial and closely
spaced axial beams which are chamfered with traces of straight-cut stops. Slate
slab floor. Solid wall between hall and inner room.
This is an example of a later longhouse still following the traditional plan but on
a relatively small scale.
