5/47 Oak Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. Late C15 core, with early C17 and later alterations. 2
storeys: L-shaped form. Timber-framed and rendered; clay pantiles to one side
slope of the roof, the remainder plaintiled, with 4 courses of black-glazed
pantiles at the eaves. An internal chimney-stack, at the junction of the 2
ranges, with tall saw-tooth shafts on a square base, and another stack, of
Tudor brick with stepped sides, added to one side wall. Various windows,
mainly C20: small-paned casements , C20 doors. The interior of the main range
has good timbering, and shows signs of alterations from an open hall: an
inserted main beam to one ceiling, blocked original windows, and empty
mortices for long arched braces in the main posts. The tie-beam of the open
truss has been removed, and the roof timbers are apparently renewed. The C17
extension, which includes the internal stack, has a ground storey room with
joists set on edge.
