3/60 Kinnings Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C17 with C20 alterations. Painted roughcast rendered stone rubble
and cob. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Axial brick stack and brick shafts
to rendered stone rubble stack at right gable end.
Plan: 3 rooms in line with parlour heated by gable end stack to right (upper) end,
larger kitchen heated by axial stack and small service room at left end. Direct
entrances into parlour and at lower end of kitchen. Staircase runs up rear left-
hand corner of kitchen. The fact that the parlour does not share the axial stack
with the kitchen, but is heated by the separate gable end stack, together with the
change in roof structure and the massive cob wall partition incorporating the stack
between the kitchen and parlour, strongly suggests the latter is a late C17/early
2 storeys. 3-window range. All C20 2-light casements. Plank door, upper 2 panels
glazed to left and plank door to cross-passage doorway to right, each flanked by 2-
Interior: C19 joinery mainly intact. Remains of late C17 or early C18 moulded
plaster cornice survives the parlour. C17 roof structure over kitchen and service
room entirely intact under C20 superimposed one. Low ceiling to kitchen, original
fireplace possibly concealed behind C20 grate.
Kinnings is a good exmaple of the majority of Chittlehamholt farmhouses which are
situated in the former 'holt' or wood, which was carved up and enclosed as small
farms in the C17.
