Edge End Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse. Originally possibly C16 or earlier. Remodelled
early C19, and subsequently. Originally cruck-framed, the
lower walls are roughly coursed and squared sandstone, raised
in brick. Plain-tiled roof.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 3-window range. 2-unit plan, the present
doorway leading to stair-hall between the 2 units, the
original end lobby entrance now an internal doorway against
the heck-wall of the principal fireplace.
Plain stone architrave to doorway, with 2-light unchamfered
mullioned window (possibly C18) to its left. Early C20
casement window of 2 lights to right. Gabled dormers to attic
possibly of similar date.
Single-storey wing, also coursed and squared stone projects to
right, and later C19 brick wing added to rear.
Rear elevation contains one early (C17) plain chamfered
mullioned window. Gable walls retain lines of early gable
(relating to a single-storeyed building), rendered over on S
gable, but with moulded kneelers clearly visible.
INTERIOR: one cruck frame survives intact, and the lower
portion of a further pair of blades forms the basis of a
fire-bay, carrying the bressumer, and linked to the heck-wall.
It seems likely that the crucks represent all that is left of
an original timber-framed building, subsequently encased in
stonework, although it is possible that both stonework and
crucks relate to the same phase of construction (neither of
the crucks form exterior walls, and the sectional form of the
stone-work is consistent with that formed by the crucks).
Chamfered and stopped spine-beam in parlour, roughly chamfered
spine-beam in principal room; both have chamfered and stopped
joists.
