TM 38 NE
2/8 Hawthorn Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Mid C16. 2 storeys and attics; 3-cell plan. Timber-framed;
encased in C18 red brick; clay pantiles. An end chimney-stack on the left,
set within the gable, and an internal stack, both with similar square shafts
and plain bands. 2-light and 3-light C20 casement windows in traditional
style. An enclosed, gabled red brick porch with clay pantiled roof. Interior
in 5 bays, with ceiling-beams exposed: the ground-floor rooms on each side of
the internal stack have plain unchamfered joists set flat and a chamfered main
beam with step stops. The upper ceilings are a later insertion, with joists
set on edge. The roof has 2 rows of stepped butt purlins, pared-off at their
junction with the deep, narrow principal rafters; the cambered collars are
halved against the principals with barefaced dovetail halvings, and there is a
ridge-piece. The general impression is that the roof is later in date than
the frame: probably a later replacement in conjunction with inserting the
upper ceilings.
