5/121 Fir Tree Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C14. Timber framed, mostly plastered, with a thatched roof.
2 storeys. A former open hall house with storied accommodation at each end.
C19 and C20 casement windows. C20 plank door into cross-passage. Axial
stack, the shaft rebuilt. Set back to the right a small single storey
thatched addition with a small gable stack. Fine original paired service
doorways with 2-centre arches. At each end of the cross-passage are 2
sections of medieval studded plank doors, almost certainly from a church.
Queen-post roof: the open truss has an arched-braced cambered tie beam (one
brace removed) and square queen posts with heavy braces to arcade plates and
cambered collar; the collar is said to carry a further truss, possibly a king
post to the roof ridge. Studding largely intact; the upper part of one 6-
light diamond-mullioned hall window is exposed and there is evidence for the
other. Stack inserted against upper end of hall. A timber set against the
upper part of the stack may be part of a former timber-framed chimney. The
solar end was partly rebuilt and extended by one bay in early C17.
