SO 62 SE
6/44 Pinford Farmhouse


House. Probably early C18 rebuilding of late-medieval timber-frame.
Painted rubble and timber-framing with tile roof. One storey with attic.
West wall has two C20 casement windows with glazing bars to the left of a
C20 lean-to glazed porch. Within the porch is a window and a door with
plain reveals. Above are two gabled attic dormers. To the right of the
porch is a C20 window Above it, extending upwards under a gable, is a
casement window with glazing bars. Chimneys to right of door and project-
ing from rear wall. The right-hand return wall, facing south, has a gabled
oversailing upper storey which is clad in corrugated iron. At the rear of
the house is a gable in line with the front gable. This has a truss exposed
above a later extension. Between the tie-beam and collar are two struts,
with curved struts above. The rear wall has some square-panelled framing
exposed on the first floor. Interior: only the room entered from the front
door was accessible at time of survey (March 1986). It has a timber-framed
left-hand wall, and chamfered main beams spanning from front to back. In
front of the left-hand wall at the rear of the house is a cruck blade carved
to form a bracket where it meets a chamfered and stopped ceiling beam. The
front blade has been removed and the beam extended to meet the front wall.
The ceiling beam must be contemporary with the cruck, which suggests that
this part of the house has always been ceiled, or that it was a mantel beam
in an open hall.
