Barn Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C15 or C16. Timber-framed with colourwashed render and pantile
roof. Single storey with attic. Small hall house. Road front: doorway at
left of centre on line with a screens passage and to left of this a 2-light
metal-framed casement of C20 date (as are all the windows). To right of
this is a similar window and to far right French windows with a single-
light casement slightly to their left. To the attic are 3 raking dormer
windows, each of 2 lights with metal-framed casements, and to the ridge at
right is an axial stack of 2 flues. The left hand gable wall has a 2-light
ground floor window at right and a 2-light window to the first floor at
left with a single-flue C20 brick chimney stack at left of centre.
Rear: C20 outshut at right with a flat roof and a 2-light raking dormer
window to the attic.

Interior: One ground floor room has a massive chamfered ceiling beam with
broach stops supported on similarly stopped wall posts. Front wall of
close studding and rear wall replaced in the C18 of close studding with
lengthy angle braces. Two 4-centered arched door heads, one to a service
room at one side of the screens passage (now partially blocked) and the
other at one side of the inserted hearth. To the first floor is a truss
which rises from the ground floor ceiling beams and appears to be a truss
from an open hall altered at the time of the addition of an upper storey by
cutting the tie beam and raising its central portion on stilts.
