9/11 Maplehill Farmhouse -

- II

Farmhouse. C16 with C17 modifications and C20 addition and alterations. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Gable-ended asbestos slate roof. Brick axial stack offset from the ridge and small brick shaft at right gable-end. Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan but long lower room to left was formerly a barn although it has now been converted and the front doorway of the passage blocked. Hall stack backs onto passage. Apart from an early doorway leading from passage to hall most of the features date from the C17 suggesting a major remodelling which may have incorporated the flooring in of an open hall although any evidence of his in the roof has not survived. The large inner room is very symptomatic of a C17 remodelling and it has a winder staircase in a projection at the front. In the early - mid C20 a rear outshut was added. A further staircase rises from the rear of the nall benind the stack in a slight projection but its date is unclear. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front, 4 to ground floor, of C20 mostly small-paned 1, 2, and 3-light casements apart from tne 1st floor right-hand 1 which is probably C19. Rectangular stair projection at right end with late C19 or C20 lean-to porcn adjoining to its left which has C20 part-glazed door. At rear is slight projection for stairs behind hall stack and adjoining C20 outshut to left. Interior: C16 heavy wooden doorframe from former passage to hall has jowelled jambs and segmental-headed lintel, chamfered on the passage side. Hall fireplace has chamfered wooden lintel with crude stops, cloam oven. Inner room has rough joists to ceiling and rebuilt fireplace. Wooden winder stairs in projection at front.
