LANDKEY SS 53 SE 7/104 Farmhouse now used as store shed approximately 100 metre north- west of and on opposite side of road to Hill Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now used for farm storage. Late C15 or early C16, with C17 and C20 alterations. Stone rubble and cob, facade rebuilt in breeze blocks and rendered over. Corrugated iron roof with gable ends. Large stone rubble stack with drip and tapered cap, and rounded bread oven projection with slate canopy. Rectangular on plan, formerly an open hall house which may have extended further south but following insertion of floors and stack in C17 the house was remodelled as 2-cell cottage. 2-storeys. 2-window range of 4-paned fixed lights and similar window with glazing bars removed to right of plank door.

Interior Chimneybreast to bread oven side has been partially in filled but large chamfered timber lintel with scroll-stopped chamfers survives. The beams at each end and to the centre also have scroll-stopped chamfers. The replaced roof covering and purlins are carried on heavily smoke-blackened raised cruck truss with slightly cranked collar lap-jointed and pegged to the blades which have trenches for 2-tiers of purlins. The truss was later closed above first floor level with a lath and plaster partition, almost half of which survives. A large first floor opening at the lower gable end has been infilled.
