TM 16 NW
3/85 Low Farmhouse

-- II
Former farmhouse. Late C16 and C17, in 2 phases; later C17 service wing to
rear on left. Under renovation at time of survey (September 1987) following a
fire which destroyed roof over hall and service cells. 3-cell form. 2
storeys and attic. Timber framed and plastered, thatched roof. Various C19-
C20 casement windows. Plank door. Internal stack, the axial shaft rebuilt
1987. l½-storey rear wing has stack against outside wall, in course of
rebuilding at time of survey. Shallow-pitched pantiled roof. Interior.
Parlour cell to right was undamaged by the fire: frame largely concealed,
closely-spaced chamfered joists in lower room, good intact roof with clasped
purlins and 2-way wind bracing. Hall and service cells are probably a C17
addition, replacing earlier work. The wallplates of the 2 sections are not
jointed. Most of studding concealed. Hall ceiling has plain joists set flat:
the bay nearer the stack has very heavy joists, perhaps re-used. Service
partition removed and replaced by cross-partition in lower bay of hall. Back-
to-back open fireplaces in hall and parlour show lining of mortar joints.
