CHAPEL FARMHOUSE

II
Detached farmhouse. C18 three bay house extended by one bay in C19, and with C20 additions to rear. The outbuildings attached to north gable are not of special interest. It is built of local lias stone, cut and squared, random coursed and colour washed. Thatched roof with plain gables and bay to north has triple roll clay tiles with a stepped coped gable of Hamstone. Brick end chimney stacks to C18 building. It has two storeys with four bays.
EXTERIOR: Front elevation has a central doorway with C20 gabled porch with tiled roof and rustic supports. At either side of the doorway are C20 casements. To the first floor, under the eaves, are three 3-light casement windows of early C19 date within the original window openings. To the left is the bay added in the C19 with windows to both floors, a small leaded casement at first floor and a C20 steel window below. There is a single storey range to the rear with a catslide roof of corrugated sheeting.
INTERIOR: A timber framed partition of thin scantling and brick infill divides the ground floor into two rooms; the right hand room has an open fireplace with chamfered bressumer with simple run out stops, and a bread oven. The other room has a C20 tiled fireplace, and was originally the living room. On the first floor is a C18 plank and muntin partition wall. The C19 bay has a single purlin roof structure with exposed rafters and angled struts; it was not possible to inspect the main roof.
ASSESSMENT OF IMPORTANCE: This is a good example of a C18 yeoman's farmhouse with a C19 one bay extension. The building retains much of its original character and fabric, including the survival of a number of original internal features.
