SS 40 NE
7/90 Westover Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. C17 with C18 additions altered in C20. Plastered cob walls. Gable-
ended thatched roof. Brick stack at each end right-hand one has projecting rendered
rubble base, brick axial stack and one to rear of outshut.
Plan: original plan not entirely clear due to C20 alterations - at present it
consists of 3 rooms and a passage but the central room appears too small to have
been the hall and evidence suggests that the left-hand room may be an C18 addition.
All the rooms are heated but it is difficult to say which stacks are original as
they have been altered in C20. An outshut runs along the rear of the house which
was probably added in the C18 and also has a fireplace.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of circa early C20 2-light
casements apart from late C20 casement without glazing bars to left of centre on
ground floor which probably blocks a doorway. 1st floor windows are dormers in
small gables. C19 stone gabled porch towards right-hand end with segmental arch and
C20 part-glazed door behind. Rear outshut runs the length of the house under a
catslide roof.
Interior: most early features such as ceiling beams and open fireplaces, if they
survive, have been concealed by a thorough C20 modernisation. C18 roof structure
survives consisting of rough straight principal rafters.
