1/31 Fell's Farmhouse

- II

Wrongly shown on 1955 OS map as Field's Farm. House. Circa 1570, altered in
C18 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 3
bays facing S, extended to W by one bay in C18. C18 central stack. C18/19
external end stacks. C19/20 single-storey extension to E. C20 2-storey lean-to
extension to N. 2 storeys. All windows are C20 casements. C20 French window.
Roof half-hipped. The original building has jowled posts, close studding,
edge-halved and bridled scarfs in the wallplates, some members of main frame
chamfered with lamb's tongue stops. Diamond mortices and shutter grooves for
unglazed windows visible at W end, studding removed. Chamfered axial beams,
plain joists. Much disturbance of floor structure in the middle bay, and re-use
of old components; this may indicate the position of the original chimney,
demolished. The C18 central stack has small hearths facing E and W, refaced
with C20 bricks. The C18 W extension has unjowled posts, and lighter framing
and floor joists. The combination of evidence for unglazed windows and lamb's
tongue stops permits a close dating of the original structure. RCHM 6 (as
Field's Farm).
