4/27 Ancillary building
15 metres north-west of
Ferriers Farmhouse
Ancillary building, probably a court house, now garages and stores. Mid to
late C16. Timber framed, weatherboarded with some secondary brick infill,
roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 6 bays aligned approx. E-W, facing S.
C19 lean-to extension at E end with corrugated iron roof. 2 storeys with attic.
2 garage doors, 2 plain boarded doors on ground floor and one on first floor,
scattered fenestration, not original. Hipped gablet at W end. The ground floor
was originally divided into 3 sections of 2 bays each, open at the E end, now
further sub-divided. The first floor is divided by one original partition into
a hall of 4 bays open to the roof, and a room of 2 bays at the E end with
original ceiling and loft. Heavy studding, thin straight braces trenched inside
the end walls, jowled posts, complete set of cranked braces to 4 cambered tie
beams. Floor structure complete and original in 2 E bays, wholly rebuilt in
W bay, elsewhere with original beams but the joists re-set. Some moulded
joists, probably from Ferriers Farmhouse, re-set on edge. Unglazed windows
on first floor with grooves in wallplate for sliding shutters. One N window
is complete with 3 diamond mullions, another retains 2 of 3 mullions. Sliding
shutters in situ. Edge-halved and bridled scarfs in wallplates. Some original
wattle and daub in N wall, E gable, and first floor partition. Principal
rafters reduced for side purlins on high straight collars. Cranked wind-
bracing, complete. This building is of exceptional historical interest, and
although much altered on the ground floor, has remained substantially unaltered
