- Moat Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C16, with a later C17 extension. 2 storeys; attic to part.
Timber-framed and plastered, faced in colour-washed brick; clay pantiles. An
end chimney-stack on the right set within the frame, and an extension at a
lower level beyond it. Various C20 cross windows. Entrance door with 6 sunk
panels, the top 2 glazed. Inside, the present partitions and the position of
the stair bear no relation to the bay divisions of the frame. On the left of
the entry, one ground floor room has an exposed ceiling with heavy, closely-
set flat joists and a main beam with 3 1/2" chamfer and pyramid stops. The upper
ceilings in the older part of the house are original, also with joists set
flat. The roof is in short bays, with 2 rows of butt purlins, cambered
collars and a deep, narrow ridge-piece. The moat which gives the farm its
name has been completely filled in since the last War.
