6/40 Nethercott Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa late C17 with minor C19 alterations and a small C20 rear addition.
Rendered colourwashed cob with a slate roof gabled at ends, formerly thatched. 2
chimneys with brick shafts, one at the left gable end, one axial. Small 3 room and
through passage house with the hall heated from a stack backing on to the passage, an
unheated inner room possibly used as a dairy and a lower end room which may have been
unheated originally but which was used as a heated parlour in the C19. The stairs
run behind a partition at the rear of the hall. In the circa late C19 the hall was
enlarged by a single-storey lean-to and the garden front refenestrated. In the late
C20 a brick lean-to was added at the front of the lower end room. 2 storeys. 3-
window garden elevation (the rear of the C17 house) with a late C19/early C20 glazed
gabled porch to the left leading into the through passage and a half-glazed door to
the right leading into the dairy. Regular fenestration of late C19/early C20 4-pane
sashes and casement windows with glazing bars.
Interior The former front door, now within the C20 lean-to, is a circa late C17
studded 3 plank door in an old doorframe. The hall fireplace has stone rubble jambs
and a timber lintel. The remains of a C19 plank dado on the hall wall opposite the
fireplace continues into the lean-to extension to the hall. The lower end chimney
piece is C19 with a reeded surround. Inner room not inspected but said to have a
forked cross beam supported on a post (Alcock). The interior of the house is very
unaltered since the late C19.
Alcock, MS notes on Broadwoodwidger Parish.
