10/248 Stocken Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa early to mid C17, possibly with earlier origins. Roughcast cob.
Steeply pitched corrugated asbestos roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks with
rebuilt red brick shafts; the right-hand is a large projecting stack, the left end
stack also projects but is much smaller.
Plan: because the interior was not inspected the plan is uncertain. It is single
depth and probably 3 rooms. The large room at the right-hand end is probably the
hall/kitchen heated from a gable end stack and with a stair turret at the back. The
left-hand room may have been the parlour heated from a gable end stack.
Alternatively the left-hand room could have been an unheated service room originally.
There is said to be a small unheated service room at the centre with an axial
passage in front into which leads the central entrance in a slight projection at the
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front. At the centre the doorway is in
a slight narrow 2 storey projection, with a C20 door on the ground floor and a C20 2-
light casement on both the ground and first floors. To the right there is a large
late C20 ground floor casement and no window above, The central doorway has a late
C20 glazed lean-to porch.
The rear elevation has a rectangular projecting stair tower to the left of centre.
Interior was inaccessible at the time of the survey in 1987. There is said to be an
old bench in the right-hand room, some circa C17 panelling and newel stairs in the
turret behind the right-hand room. The roof structure may be of interest.
