SX 69 SE SOUTH TAWTON EAST WEEK

4/191 Workshop approximately 80 metres south-west of East Week Farmhouse

GV II

Workshop, former farmhouse. Early C17 with some later C17 improvements, disused as a farmhouse and converted to a workshop in the late C19-early C20. Plastered cob and stone rubble; disused stone rubble stacks; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch. Plan and development: originally a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house built down the hillslope and it faces_east-south-east, say east. The former inner room and hall have now been knocked together to provide the main workshop space. The inner room used to be uphill at the right (northern) end. It was apparently unheated and may have been a dairy. Hall has a large axial stack backing onto the passage. C17 winder stair to rear of hall at lower end. Service end room has a projecting gable- end stack. Secondary outshot to rear of hall has an outer lateral stack. The house is largely the result of a major mid C17 refurbishment but the original house was probably some kind of open hall house. House was 2 storeys but the former inner room and most of the former hall are now open to the roof. Exterior: irregular 4-window front of C19 windows, mostly with internal shutters. Passage front doorway is left of centre and contains a C19 plank door. Tine passage rear doorway contains part of a C17 oak doorframe; its ovolo-moulded lintel, and the plank door is very old. The roof is gable-ended. The uphill right gable-end wall contains a full height doorway with segmental head which was knocked through in the late C19-early C20 to the workshop. Interior: both sides of the passage are lined with oak plank-and-muntin screens. The earliest (probably early C17) is the short section to rear of the hall stack; its muntins have filleted ovolo mouldings with scroll stops. The lower passage screen (mid C17) has a plain scratch-moulded head and the muntins have broad bead mouldings. The service end fireplace is blocked. The axial beam here has plain soffit chamfers and extends over the passage where the soffit has been cut away with shaped scroll-like edges to provide more headroom. Its joists are bead-moulded. The hall fireplace is granite ashlar with a hollow-chamfered surround. The hall crossbeam is ovolo-moulded and the surviving joists (the lower end bay) are bead- moulded. The upper hall crosswall and any carpentry detail associated with the inner room have been removed. 6-bay roof of A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. East Week is a straggling hamlet which contains several other listed buildings.
