6/16 Church Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Early to mid C16, remodelled mid C17 and mid C18, extended in
C19. Timber-framed and plaster infill, parts roughcast, slate roofs, rubblestone
ridge stack with red brick shafts. Hall and cross wing type extended and
converted. 2 storeys over cellar. Hall, probably of 3 structural bays,
has close studding to first floor and long straight tension braces; formerly
jettied it has now been underbuilt on the ground floor which is roughcast
(but see the moulded bressumer with billet type moulding); on the first floor
one C19 casement to right and an original 2-light window (now infilled) to
left. On the ground floor a projecting flat roofed porch to the right marks
the position of the former cross passage; to the right of this a projecting
gabled cross wing with C19 casements on both floors. The gable end of the
hall is stone clad and bears the datestone R below the roof
apex. To the rear the twin gabled elevation E S retains close
studding to the ground floor and the position 1751 of an original
small 2-light window (now blocked) to the right; jettying to the first floor
(note the difference in height between the 2 gables) and to an attic on the
right hand gable, now obscured by roughcast. Underneath the roughcast there
is said to be unusual timber-framed decoration on both the gables and one
of them is said also to have a datestone of 1659. To the right of the original
farmhouse (looking from the east) is a C19 addition, rectangular in plan,
also roughcast with a slate hipped roof. (Interior not inspected). B.O.E. P.203.
