5/50 Moat Farmhouse
Former farmhouse, standing on a large rectangular moated site. C16. 2
storeys: L-shaped plan: 3 bays to front range, two-and-a-half bays to rear.
Timber-framed, with timbers exposed; plaintiles. The studding is of good
quality, with a middle rail, and arched braces, some of ogee form, at the
corners. In the left bay of the main range there has been considerable C20
replacement of timbers. An internal chimney-stack with saw-tooth shafts, set
in the angle of the 2 ranges, and a secondary stack set externally against the
front wall of the right-hand bay. Various windows: small-paned casements,
some with transome; one Edwardian oriel to the upper storey; small-paned sash
windows with flush frames to gable ends. Edwardian ornately-panelled door.
Heavy, plain ceilings exposed throughout the ground storey; joists set flat
and unchamfered except for the 2-bay room in the rear range, where both main
beams and joists have a chamfer. Main posts and wall-plates visible on the
upper storey, but no studding. Roof not examined. The 2 ranges are
contemporary, although the layout of the front has been altered. In the angle
between the 2, C19 and later extensions include the stair. One upper room has
good Jacobean panelling. A C20 extension to the rear wing is not included in
