Deer Leap Farmhouse

(Formerly listed as Deep Leap Farmhouse)


House. C17 or earlier. Whitewashed plastered cob and stone rubble; thatched roof,
gabled at ends; left end stack with brick shaft.
Plan: Not entirely clear as no access to interior at time of survey (1986) but it
appears to be a 3 room and cross passage plan, lower end to the left, hall stack
probably dismantled. Single-storey C20 lean-tos at rear of right hand (inner) room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over
the first floor windows. Recessed C19 plank and cover strip front door to cross
passage; 2 and 3-light timber casements with C20 square leaded panes. The rear
elevation has a shallow projection, possibly the truncated hall stack.
Interior: No access at time of survey but interior features of interest may survive
including the possibility of early roof timbers; an interior inspection might
necessitate the revision of the suggested dating.
