Listing Text

TM 15 NW
3/21 Wood Farmhouse
Farmhouse, C15 with early C17 remodelling. 1 storey and attics. 3-cell plan,
converted to lobby-entrance form in C17. Timber-framed and plastered with
some C19 herringbone pargetting in panels. Thatched roof with axial C17
chimney of red brick with sawtooth shaft. A large C19 eyebrow dormer. Early
C19 small-pane casements with Gothick hoodmoulds. C19 flat-roofed entrance
porch, with 4-panelled door and simple pilasters and cornice. A 2-storey
pantiled C18 service wing to rear. A 2-bay open hall of unusually small
proportions forms the nucleus of the house; the open truss is almost entirely
removed but leaves evidence for long arch braces rising from pilasters. A
blocked 2-centred arched cross-entry doorway. Twin service room doorways are
chamfered; but are without arches, an exceptional omission for the period
which underlines the modesty of the building. Widely-spaced studding with
convex arched wind-bracing at corners. Service rooms with heavy rough joists
(the partition removed). Said to retain smoke-blackened roof (probably of
coupled-rafter form). An original circular open hearth is preserved beneath
the present floor, with radially-set bricks on edge. In early C17 the parlour
cell was rebuilt larger. A fireplace with cambered lintel in hall, and
inserted upper floor, both of late C16 or early C17.
