TM 27 SW
Rose Farmhouse
Farmhouse. First half of C15 with C16 alterations. Timber framed, mostly
roughcast-rendered; colourwashed brick to left gable end below tie beam level.
Pantiled roof. 2 storeys. 3-cell form with former open hall. Scattered
fenestration, C20 small-paned metal casements. Boarded and 4-panelled doors,
one with gabled open porch. Heavy internal stack, the external portion of the
shaft rebuilt in mid C20; external stack to right gable end. Internally most
of the frame is concealed. Hall open truss has cambered tie beam with long
arched braces meeting at the centre. Fine octagonal crown-post with moulded
base and cap, and with 4-way bracing. The remainder of the hall roof is
substantially intact, all the timbers well sooted, as are both plastered end

for both cross-entry doorways. In C16 the hall was floored over and a stack
built against the outside of the upper end wall. The one bay of the inserted
floor visible has closely-spaced joists with run-out stops. Beyond the stack
is a one-bay parlour with plain C16 joists. The service end seems to have
been altered and perhaps enlarged in C15 - early C16: in the front wall is a
jowled post about one metre from the gable end. The roof above is altered,

square, extending the full length of the cell and protruding into the hall
where it is heavily sooted. The joists in the service cell are mostly
