- II

Farmhouse. Early C16 with later alterations and extensions. Cob, stone plinth,
rendered, under gabled-end slate roof. Originally a 3-room through passage plan,
the lower end to the right of passage. The Hall was formerly open, but the lower
end appears to have been of 2 storeys from the beginning. The original roof to the
inner room has not survived. Right-hand end stack; axial stack to upper end of
Hall. 2 storeys throughout.
Front: 4 window range, all 1st floor windows of 2-lights under little gables, 3 of
which are boarded, and 1 hipped and slated; 2 ground-floor doorways, that to the
right under canopy stands a little to the right of the original passage entrance.
(The opposing rear passage door also blocked). Three 2 and 3-light windows. All
casement timber, C20. Fenestration to side elevations : left-hand rear wing has one
timber sash window, hornless, 10 panes to each sash; right-hand wing with 4 late-
C19 2-light timber casement windows. Back of wings are without windows; outshut
Roof: late-medieval roof over Hall and lower end; 2 lower-end trusses are clean, the
Hall principals smoke-blackened, the left-hand truss closed, and smoke-blackened to
Hall side only. Trenched purlins; apexes morticed and side pegged; diagonal ridge-
piece missing. These principals (one lower end truss with only one blade) no longer
support the present C19 roof.
