10/1 Coxland Farmhouse 26.8.65


Farmhouse. Probably C16, improved in C17. Plastered cob on rubble footings with some C19 brick rebuilding; volcanic ashlar and rubble and brick stacks; corrugated asbestos roof (formerly thatch). House forms south-east aide of courtyard arrangement. 3-room-and-through-passage plan with inner room to north east (right of front). Rear passage door now blocked and rear door inserted to service room.

Front lateral stack to hall and end stack to service room. Gable-ended roof. Two storeys window front of C20 iron and wooden casements of varied size and irregular disposition. Front door has C17 richly-moulded oak frame with Urn stops behind C20 gabled and slate-roofed porch. Immediately to right massive plastered projecting lateral hall stack with exposed volcanic ashlar chimney shaft with moulded cap (possibly 16th C). Further right, between hall and inner room windows, another lateral projection of uncertain function. Service end apparently much rebuilt.

Most early original features lie hidden behind C18 and C19 plasterwork. Chamfered oak crossbeams in service room, 1 C16 with stepped stops, 1 C17 half-beam with scroll stops. Passage and hall have C17 moulded plaster cornices, and C17 ogee- moulded oak doorframe from hall to inner room. Roof inaccessible. Rear wings comprise C19 2-storey, slate roofed north-east range including ground floor dairy and through passage and chamber above with 12-pane sash, C18 2-storey store with slate roof hipped each end to north-west, and C20 brick single storey dairy to South-west, off the service room.
