3/81 Brightleymill Farmhouse - - II Farmhouse and former miller's house, now private dwelling. Probably late C17, with C18 and late C19 extensions. Whitewashed rendered stone and cob. Unrendered stone rubble with brick dressings to late C19 extension. Thatch roof with gable ends. Stone rubble stacks with brick stacks at front gable and across rear angle and lateral brick and stone rubble stack. Plan: overall L-shaped plan. Later alterations have obscured original late C17 plan, but may have consisted of one room, now forming the projecting front wing, dormerly with direct entry (now blocked) and staircase at the rear (now removed). Solid stone rubble and cob partition between this and the rear room which is heated by a fireplace across its rear right-hand angle. This may be a C18 addition. In the late C19, a 2-room kitchen and dairy extension was added at right angles onto the left side of the original range, the kitchen with direct entry and heated by rear stack. At the same time the doorway into the original range was moved to the left, close to the angle of the extension, giving access into a small entrance stairhall taken out of the rear room of the original range. 2 storeys. Late C19/C20 fenestration all 2-light casements. Original range has a 2-light casement, 6 panes per light on each floor to large leanto slate roof to porch in the angle of the 2 ranges with 2 C20 doors. C19 extension has two 2-light casements on each floor, variously paned, with brick quoins, those to ground floor with cambered brick lintels. Interior: room to front wing has late C17 chamfered ceiling beam with hollow step stops and chamfered fireplace lintel, with hollow step stop at left end. Bread oven with cast iron door.
