SO 25 SE
2/106 Penlan Farmhouse and
adjoining outbuilding
(formerly listed as
Penlan Farmhouse)
Shown on OS Map as Little Penlan.
Farmhouse and adjoining outbuilding. Probably C15, altered and extended
circa 1600 with further mid-C19 alterations. Timber-framed with painted
brick and rendered infill and some weatherboarding on rubble base, partly
underbuilt in rubble with brick dressings and partly roughcast. Stone-
tiled roofs laid in diminishing courses. Former cruck hall house aligned
north-east/south-east of which one bay survives together with a two-bay
intersecting south-west cross-wing. Circa 1600, the main range was divided
into two storeys, its north-east bay either rebuilt or added and an inter-
secting north-east cross-wing of two framed bays (of different heights)
also added to form an H-plan. Also two large external rubble chimneys
with brick stacks were built at the north-west gable ends of both cross-
wings. Lean-to additions with catslide roofs were built on either side
of the main range at a later date. Part single-storey and attic with
dormers, part two storeys. Framing: mainly four panels from sill to wall-
plate with some small solid upper corner braces. The first floor of the
south-west wing is jettied on shaped brackets at the south-east end (now
underbuilt to the south-west side and north-west end). South-west wing
has tie-beam trusses with raking struts. North-east wing has collar and
tie-beam trusses with struts and V-struts above the collar. South-east
front elevation: main range has a 2-light ground floor casement, a gabled
dormer with a 2-light casement and the main entrance which has a gabled
timber porch and plank and battened door. Left cross-wing gable end has
a 3-light ground floor casement and a 2-light first floor casement. Right
gable end has plank weatherings at girding-beam and tie-beam levels, a
ground floor 4-light casement and a 2-light first floor casement. Interior:
two pairs of full cruck trusses are visible. South-west cross-wing has
chamfered ceiling beams dividing the ceiling into eight panels. There is
also a doorway with a four-centred head. The outbuilding adjoins the north-
east end. Possibly C17. Timber-framed with corrugated metal cladding and
roofing. Two bays. Two levels. There are two doors in the south-east
front elevation and also a painted brick single-storey wing which projects
from the left bay. This has a 2-light casement at its gable end, a doorway
in the left angle with the farmhouse and a C20 lean-to addition at the right
side. Interior: wall-framing has three panels from sill to wall-plate.
