9/206 Dipple Farmhouse and adjoining - farm buildings to south and west

- II

Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 with C19 addition. Rendered rubble walls possibly incorporating some cob. Gable-ended asbestos slate roof. Barn is rubble and cob with corrugated iron roof. 3 brick stacks, one axial, one at right-hand end and one to rear outshut. Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right. Hall heated by stack at its higher end, inner room unheated and lower room with gable-end fireplace. It is possible that the hall also functioned as a kitchen, the inner room was a service room and the lower room a parlour. At the left-hand end abutting to the inner room a C17 barn projects and at its far end, returning parallel to the house, is a shippon which may be contemporary or C18. In the angle between barn and house a C20 lean-to was added. Also in the C20 a staircase was inserted in the passage, extending along rear wall of house is C19 outshut. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front of late C19 or early C20 6-pane sashes. C20 plank and part-glazed door to right of centre. Lean-to projects from left-hand end of house built against the adjoining barn. This has small windows on the 1st floor and doorway left of centre. The shippon extends at right angles from its left end with doorways to left and right, a window inbetween and 1st floor loading hatch to left of centre. Interior: lower room of house has small fireplace with chamfered and stopped wooden lintel, the jambs rebuilt. Roughly chamfered ceiling beam. Hall has large open fireplace with chamfered dressed stone jambs and wooden cambered and chamfered wooden lintel with bar stops. Similarly decorated ceiling beams, the one nearest the passage partition grooved for a screen. Inner room has roughly chamfered beam. Roof: encased feet of straight princpals, possibly C17 visible on 1st floor. The barn has C17 roof trusses consisting of straight princpals with morticed apex, trenched purlins and collars halved on with dovetail joints. This range of buildings forms an attractive traditional farm group and the survival of a C17 barn is fairly unusual.
