4/37 Brook Farmhouse

- II*

Farmhouse. Early to mid C16. 2 storeys; 3-cell lobby-entrance plan. Timber-
framed; pebbledash render; C20 concrete pantiles; wide, plain eaves. The
internal chimney-stack, in small red and yellow Tudor bricks, has 4 attached
shafts in a cruciform arrangement, set diagonally on a rectangular base;
later corbelled heads. 4 early C19 3-light casement windows with pintle hinges
to the upper floor; 3 similar 3-light windows with transomes to the ground
floor; a small-paned sash window in cased frame to the gable wall. The main
frame, in 6 bays, is of high quality: both hall and parlour, on each side of
the stack, have heavy main beams with a multiple roll-moulding, and the same
moulding on the beams of the chimney-bay and partition walls. On the upper
floor, cambered tie-beams, long, deep arched braces, and long jowls to the
posts. Blocked mullion windows. The room above the parlour has a fine
original cambered ceiling, with 3 trimmers morticed into each side of the tie-
beam and the interstices plastered. Roof inaccessible. An additional C17 bay
at the service end, now incorporating an end stack, has much simpler framing.
