1/47 Younghouse Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 or possibly earlier, extensively remodelled and refronted circa
early C19. Rubble walls with brick dressings to some windows. 2 brick gable end
stack. Projecting rubble lateral stack at rear. Gable ended slate roof.
Originally 3-room and through passage plan with screens passage. Possibly had open
hall but no visible evidence for this, apart from different types of beams in hall.
Hall has lateral fireplace, lower and inner rooms may originally have been unheated.
House modernised internally in C19 and passage blocked at rear. 2 rear, probably
C18/C19, wings added at either end, right-hand one is dairy with storage loft above.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical but regular 4-window front. Ground and first floor right-
hand windows are tripartite C16 pane circa mid C19 sashes. Others are all 16-pane
early C19 hornless sashes except for ground and first floor left which are 12 panes.
Early C19 6-panel door to right of centre with small rectangular fanlight above.
Contemporary door canopy supported on carved wooden brakcets with 1 Tuscan column at
the front to the left, the right-hand one of which has been replaced by part of a
telegraph pole in late C20.
Interior : early features mainly obscured by subsequent alterations. However the
hall has a chamfered cross beam with no stops visible. At the higher end of the
hall visible at the top of the partition is a richly moulded beam with bar and
hollow step stops, originally the head-beam to a screen which is now covered up.
According to the owner a similar screen survives, concealed, at the lower end of the
hall. Roof timbers of one end of the house inspected, appear to be C19 replacements
with straight principals and lapped collars.
At present this house offers little evidence of its undoubtedly early origins but it
appears that the evidence is merely concealed rather than destroyed.
