3/103 Town Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16, in at least 2 phases to form a single long 4-cell range.
Timber framed; roughcast render to front and rear, the gable ends partly cased
in tarred brick and partly plastered. Pantiled roof. 2 storeys. Various
casement windows of C19 and C20 date. C16 4-centre arched doorway into cross-
passage with mid C20 boarded door. 2 further doors. Internal stack with
rendered shaft. Some exposed studding in hall; evidence for one window with
large chamfered mullions. Plain joists exposed in upper bay. Good open
fireplace. One-bay parlour with closely-spaced plain joists; the chamfered
bridging beam is very close to the chimneybreast and appears to be later than
the wallposts. Service end modernised, part now with mid C20 stair. Only the
main components of the frame are visible on the upper floor. Cell at left end
is a later addition, now used as an outhouse: quite widely-spaced studs, half
of first floor joists replaced. Roof not examined.
