The description shall be amended to read:
Farmhouse. Circa late C16 or early Cl7, remodelled and extended in circa
late C19. Plastered stone rubble and cob. Bridgewater double Roman pantile
roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks with C19 red brick shafts. Plan
and development: 3-room and through passage plan, the lower left end room.
(kitchen) and inner room at the right end are heated from gable end stacks
with ovens, the lower end room probably originally with a newel staircase
beside the stack. The central room (the hall) probably originally had a fire-
place in a stack backing onto the passage but this would have been replaced
in the late C19 by a straight staircase and the hall turned into an unheated
room partitioned off to form an axial passage at the back. A single storey
outshut was built behind the hall and inner room and the roof structure
replaced also in the late C19. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window
front. C19 3-light casements, except for ground floor centre and left hand
C20 2-light casements; all with horizontal glazing bars. Doorway to left
of centre with steps up to late C19 plank door. At rear main roof is carried
down over single storey outshut with rounded open porch in right hand angle
to rear doorway with plank door, casement to right and C20 French casement
to left. Outshut has brick stack on right hand corner. Interior: Lower left
end room has deeply chamfered cross-beam with large step stops and deeply
chamfered half-beam in lower end wall over large open fireplace with cambered
chamfered wooden lintel. C19 brick ovens in back of fireplace with iron doors
and pointed arch over doorway in side of fireplace. Hall has been partitioned
axially to form rear passage. It had large deeply chamfered cross-beam with
large hollow step stops and unchamfered joists covered by plaster. Similar
half-beam over inner room/hall partition. Inner room has deeply chamfered
cross-beam without stops and similar half beam in gable end wall over fireplace
with C19 wooden chimneypiece. Fireplace in chamber above has Victorian moulded
