1/32 Clarks Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. C15 or earlier and late C16. Timber framed and plastered with
gabled peg tile roofs. Of one storey and attics with some parts 2 storey and of
extremely complex plan form. Basically an 'in line' hall house form with low
eaves line but with 2 gabled flush crosswings superimposed on the front. These
have original bargeboards and a carved interlocking decoration. One wing
protrudes to the rear of the similar bargeboards. A large stack with 4
truncated octagonal shafts stands on the ridge line, above the northern
crosswing. The front has an off-centre C20 lean-to porch, C19 mullion and
transomed casements and a gabled dormer between the gabled wings. At the south
end is a 2 storey gabled peg tile roofed structure, possibly a garderobe tower.
A large C17, 2 storey extension extends to the north east and there are further
rear lean-to's and extensions. Internally there are traces of a late medieval
hall house, including a steeply cambered hall tie beam. The inserted C17 floor
has stop chamfered joists. Some late C18 features including a fire surround,
some doors and an arch headed recess with serpentine shelves. An internal
staircase of spiral form has a curious moulded handrail of indeterminate date.
