1/29 West Mill Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably late C17/early C18, perhaps a remodelling of an earlier house,
C19 refenestration. An early C17 datestone is said to be concealed behind the
roughcast (information from owner). Cob on stone rubble footings, roughcast on the
front elevation; asbestos slate roof, gabled at ends (formerly thatched); left end
stack, rear lateral stack (largely rebuilt), axial stack.
Plan: Not entirely clear as interior only partially inspected at time of survey
(1987). A single depth range, 4 rooms wide with the main entrance approximately
central into a lobby facing the stair and an adjacent store room. The room to the
left of the entrance is heated by a large rear lateral stack, the extreme left hand
room is probably a C19 addition. To the right of the entrance there are two rooms,
it is not clear which of them is served by the axial stack, it may be both.
Exterior: 2-storeys. Long asymmetrical 6 window front with a wide C18 or early C19
panelled door to the main entrance, top panels glazed. A second door to the right of
the range leads into the right end room. Good set of circa early C19 casements and
sashes with glazing bars.
Interior: Partially inspected. The room is to left of the main entrance has a boxed
in crossbeam, the C20 fireplace may conceal earlier jambs and a lintel. Other
features of interest are likely to survive elsewhere.
Roof: Timbers said to have been replaced in the 1920s when the thatch was removed.
Group value with the threshing barn opposite.
A traditional farmhouse retaining a good set of C19 windows.
