5/161 Fox House
-

GV II
Farmhouse part of former longhouse. Probably third quarter of C17. (1631 date
on rack above built-in cupboard, with initials I.W., appears to be an import).
Rubble, rendered on front; stone-flagged roof. North side to road blank except
for plain boarded door. Main south front 2 storeys, 3 bays. Half-glazed
4-panel door to right bay, in place of former window. Two and three-light stone
chamfered-mullioned windows and a small fire window at left. End chimneys.
Interior: Ground floor retains heck partition and chamfered beams and joists,
except for renewed fire beam. Door from house-place to parlour is flanked by
original panelled oak built-in cupboards, the right one dated but see above.
Lintel of blocked doorway from former through-passage remains. C18 north
extension, with lobby and dairy conceals boulder plinth and blocked window of
original 2-cell house. The former downhouse, now converted to a separate
dwelling, is too much altered to be of interest.
