5/127 Brown Street Farmhouse

-- II

Former farmhouse, mid C16 in two stages. 2 storeys and attics. 3-cell cross-
entry plan. Timber-framed and plastered; some areas of C18 cable-pattern
pargetting. Thatched roof; an axial chimney with rebuilt C19 shaft of red
brick. A thatched gabled casement dormer on the west side. Mainly C20
casements. C19 slated gabled entrance porch with carved bargeboards and spike
finial; panelled door. The hall and service cells at the south end have plain
mid C16 framing. Cranked archbraces beneath the tie-beam over the hall
chamber, and queen post roof with square-set purlins. Circa 1550-1570, the
parlour block was rebuilt with slightly superior framing: ovolo-moulded 1st
floor joists and a double-ogee moulded bridging beam. Good windbraced
clasped-purlin roof; the attic over the parlour cell is original but the
remaining attics are a little later.
