TM 17 SE
4/154 Wash Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C15; partly rebuilt and enlarged in C16 and early C17. Timber
framed and plastered. Thatched roof, half-hipped to the right (over the lower
end), 1 1/2 storeys, with an attic over the upper end. A former open hall house
of 3 cells, the solar end rebuilt and extended by one bay in C16. Mid C20
casement windows. One C16 first floor window with diamond mullions. Set
forward is a gabled addition of early C17 with later lean-to's to each side.
In the gable end of this addition is a mid C20 battened plank door. Internal
stack. Intact medieval roof. The hall open truss has a cambered tie beam
with long curved braces; the tie beam carries a tall square crown-post with
simply-moulded capital and base, and with solid 2-bay bracing to the collar
purlin. The-plastered lower gable of the hall also survives and is heavily
sooted. The ceiling of boards and clay lump over the service chamber seems to
be a medieval alteration to prevent smoke reaching this room. Evidence for
one hall window and both windows over the service end, one of which is largely
intact. Part of the moulded and embattled dais beam is visible, the remainder.
obscured by the stack which was inserted against it. C16 inserted floor with
slightly-chamfered joists; the bridging beam has evidence for short braces to
the wall posts. The upper end has close studding and exposed joists on both
floors. The wall posts continue above eaves level where they curve inwards in
a cruck-like manner to support the attic floor above. The roof over this
section has one row of wind-braced clasped purlins.
