2/126 Valley Farmhouse
- II

Former farmhouse. C15 with alterations of C17 and 1894. A 3-cell open hall
house. One storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roof,
once thatched. One axial and two external CI9 chimneys of red brick, all with
diagonally-set square flues. Two C19 slated raking dormers with small-pane
sashes. C20 small-pane casements. A mid C19 6-panelled entrance door, the
upper panels glazed; a late C19 gabled pantiled porch on moulded cast iron
columns. The 2-bay open hall has lost most of its open truss, but there is a
near-complete cross-quadrate crownpost with 4-way plank bracing; complete
smoke-encrusted hall roof. Twin 4-centred arched service room doorways.
Widely-spaced tension braced studwork, with evidence for diamond-mullioned
windows. Heavy exposed floor joists in the service cell; this end was altered
in mid C16, when a pair of massive base-crucks were inserted at the left hand
end to support a half hip. Various early C17 alterations: an upper floor
inserted in the hall, and a rear 3-bay dairy wing with some reused C16 moulded
binding beams. A set-forward range to right of 1894: gault brick, slated
roof, 2 storeys.
