Details

ST 11 SE CLAYHIDON 2/5 Cordwent's Farmhouse - II House, formerly a farmhouse. Probably late C15 with later alterations and additions. Random rubble chert; gable end slate roof. Originally a 3-room cross (probably through) passage plan house, the service end to the right of the passage, and to the front of this a wing of circa 1900. The house is of jointed cruck construction and was originally open to the roof. At some point the truss between the hall and service end was closed, but the roof over the latter shows evidence of smoke-blackening. The inner room (roof space inaccessible) is jettied into the hall which was the last room to be floored; the framed partition between hall and inner room is heavily smoke blackened. The service end stack has been dismantled; the inserted stack heating the hall backs onto the site of the former passage, and is constructed of well coursed grey flint. The screen between passage and service end has gone, but its position is marked on the floor by filled sockets for the muntins. The doorways to the passage have been blocked, but enough evidence remains in the outer fabric to confirm the existence of at least the rear one. 2 storeys. Exterior Front (facing south-): irregular 4 window range; all windows are late C20 casements. Rear with stone leanto. An early planked and studded door set in a chamfered surround leads into the service room. Interior: doorway from former passage into hall (between stack and rear wall) with chamfered cranked lintel and jambs, the stops eroded. Plank and muntin screen between hall and inner room morticed into jointed cruck; muntins stopped high up (to allow for the bench which has gone), chamfered, mitred and pegged. Remains survive of zig-zag and diagonal painted decoration on the head beam and some of the muntin's although much faded. The joists of the jetty were originally chamfered and curved at the ends, although these decorative features have almost all been eroded or destroyed. Chamfered cross ceiling beams with hollow step stops. Hall chamber fireplace with continuous chamfer to stone jambs and timber lintel. Lath and plaster framed partition visible between hall and inner room all sooted. Roof: 3 jointed crucks, trenched purlins, cranked collars, and Alcock F2 type apex carpentry.
