5/370 Farmhouse building
about 120 metres ENE
of Keys Englebourne
Farm building, originally probably a house. C17. SlatE rubble. Grouted
scantle slate roof with hipped right end and gabled left and with slate hung
apex. Early crested ridge tiles. Left end of roof partly collapsed.
Plan: Rectangular on plan. 2-rooms, right hand (east) room and chamber above
heated from rear lateral stack. The left hand room which is approximately
half the size was probably also heated since there is evidence of a fireplace.
Solid stone partition wall, full height and without a doorway connecting the
2 parts of the building.
Exterior: 2 storeys. The south front is much altered by large openings
broken through for its use as a farm building. 2 cart entrances, one to left
and the other at centre, both with timber lintels. Window opening to right
to centre with timber lintel and doorway at extreme right with old wooden
doorframe with very thin ovolo-moulded jambs and with slate rubble open-
fronted porch, now without its roof. The porch appears to be an addition
and the doorway itself might also be a later alteration. 2 first floor window
openings at centre and ventilation to first floor left. 2 ventilation slits
in left (west) gable end. Rebuilt east end wall has no openings. Rear
(north) wall is intact and has truncated projecting lateral stack towards
left end. Immediately to right of stack a small C17 2-light timber window
frame, chamfered and with segmental arch heads to lights and masons mitres
but not rebated for glass.
Interior: Right hand ground floor room has fireplace in back wall with
chamfered timber lintel with hollow step stops, chamfered cross-beam also with
hollow step stops but the cross beam and joists are missing. Right hand
chamber has small fireplace in back wall with unchamfered timber lintel.
The roof has straight principal rafters with holes for threaded purlins,
mortice and tenoned apexes and later collars lapped and pegged to face of
principals. The purlins are also replacements.
