Lower Luckworthy II

Farmhouse. Circa early C17, with some C19 rebuilding. The C17 building appears to have been cob on stone rubble footings. The right gable end has been rebuilt in stone rubble and brick, and the upper storey of the porch is also brick. External walls whitewashed and plastered. Corrugated iron roof gabled at ends. Large projecting stone stack at higher left gable end with set-offs and a brick shaft. Rendered axial stack heating hall with a brick shaft. Brick chimney at right gable end. The original plan was probably 3 room and cross passage with the hall stack backing on to the passage and a heated inner room. In the circa late C19 a stair was inserted in the passage, the trusses that carried a thatched roof were cut off below collar level with a new raised roof structure over them. The right gable end wall and upper storey of the porch were rebuilt and the partition between the inner room and the hall was removed. A salting room under a lean-to roof was added at the rear and a single storey dairy was added at an oblique angle to the inner room. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with gabled 2-storey porch with a circa early C17 outer doorway with 2 orders of ovolo-moulding and a good C17 wide panelled door. The jambs have been cut away at the bottom and rest on stone bases with urn stops. A second entrance on the front at the left has a circa C19 gabled porch with a doorway on the left return. 2 ground floor windows left are 4 over 8-pane sashes, ground floor window right is a 12-pane sash. 4 first floor 16-pane sashes, one to the upper storey of the porch. Interior Steps up to the hall from the passage. C18 2-panel door between passage and hall with H-L hinge. Hall fireplace has stone rubble jambs and a high, roughly- chamfered lintel with diagonal stops. The inner room lintel is unchamfered and probably a replacement. C20 fireplace to the lower end room. C19 stair with stick balusters in the passage, servants stair in the inner room behind a partition wall. The truncated principal rafters of the earlier roof trusses are straight and unchamfered. Shown as Muckworthy on OS map.
