SS 51 SE
5/52 North Woodtown
Farmhouse. Late C16. Possibly incorporating some late medieval fabric, rendered and
plastered cob walls. Thatch roof hipped to left end, gabled to right. Large rubble
lateral stack at front and brick stack at right gable end.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the left may originally have
been completely used as a shippon but has now got small unheated room betwen passage
and shippon. The shippon itself is divided into 2 parts with a small room at the
end which has separate external access and may have been a stable. Hall is heated
by a front lateral stack with integral window bay. Inner room has gable-end
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1-window front, 4 windows to ground floor with
projecting single storey hall bay to right of centre. 2 small-paned 2-light C19
casements on ground floor to right. lst floor window is early C20 3-light casement
to left of centre. Below it is wide C20 plank door to passage. To its left is C20
small 2-light casement with a single light window beyond it. To the left of that is
C19 plank door to shippon which has loading hatch above. The end wall of the
shippon has a 1st floor loading hatch with very small square opening below it.
Behind the shippon is a small outbuilding wing which incorporates a C17 chamfered
wooden doorframe to rear courtyard and a passageway between it and the shippon.
Opening off this passageway is another C17 chamfered doorframe to the end room of
the shippon.
Interior: inaccessible at the time of survey but likely to remain unaltered,
preserving features such as ceiling beams and open fireplace and quite likely with
an early roof structure.
