8/87 No 169 (Coxfold Farmhouse)
House. Probably early C17, altered mid-C20. Timber-framing, now partly
replaced by brick and mostly rendered. Tile roof. Lobby-entry plan.
Two storeys, two bays. Front wall rendered brick with C20 windows and
applied timbers. One window at each side of single-storey gabled porch.
Four small windows on first floor. At the left is a single-storey lean-
to addition. Base of chimney cap of C17 brick, with C20 brick above.
Rear wall has exposed framing to upper storey, in square panels with straight
tension braces. Interior: the right hand room has a chamfered and stopped
main joist which is carried on a carved timber bracket where it enters a
plastered chimney breast. To the right of the chimney is a C18 built-in
oak cupboard. The left hand room has chamfered and stopped common joists
and an axial main beam which has ox-tongue stops. The inglenook fireplace
is lined with C20 brick. On the first floor there is a single central truss,
between the brick flues of the two chimneys. It has a tie-beam, collar and
raking struts. It was originally closed, and-on the landing, where it is
exposed, studs of a partition wall remain as well as a cambered doorhead
cut into the soffit of the beam. When re-exposed during C20 alterations
this was found to have "1617" carved roughly on its soffit. This is a
plausible date for the house, but the numerals do not appear to be of C17
