LANDKEY
SS 52 NE
10/109 Lower Bableigh

II

Farmhouse, now house. Late C15/early C16, remodelled in C17 with C19 and C20
alterations. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof partially
concealed by added parapet to front range. Brick stack at right end and at gable
end of rear projection. T-shaped on plan. The late medieval front range, which
has only a single room each side of the through-passage, may well have once
extended further to left, the adjoining house now occupying the site. In C17 the
room to left, originally the hall was floored over. In late C18 or early C19 the
rear right-angled gabled dairy and kitchen extension was added. 2-storeys, 3-
window range. C20 fenestration. Gabled slate roof to porch with 1/2-glazed inner
door. Ovolo moulded beam to hall. Part of dairy fittings intact. The right-hand
through-passage wall forms a solid cob partition to the apex of the roof with no
sign of smoke-blackening to the purlins it supports on the right hand side. To the
left over the hall a single truss with short very slightly curved feet and cranked
collar morticed into the soffits of the principals is thoroughly smoke-blackened as
are the 2-tiers of threaded purlins it carries.
