TRENTISHOE TRENTISHOE SS 64 NW 2/155 Farmhouse used for farm storage immediately west of west tower of Church of St Peter GV II Former farmhouse, now used for farm storage. Probably late Cl7, largely remodelled in C19. Unrendered stone rubble and some cob. Slate roofs, corrugated iron roof with lower ridge at lower end. Stone rubble stack at right gable end and axial stack with tapered caps and drips. Unusual plan partially obscured by C19 alter- ations. Axial stack at lower end of hall with considerably larger heated inner room to right. The front wall of the hall is built out possibly as an addition incorporating stair turret to left and hall window projection to right of small central lobby giving direct access through into the hall. The inner room was partitioned axially in the C19 towards the rear to form a fear passage leading to tile small winder staircase in the rear right hand corner contained within the gabli- end stack projection. The lower end has been extensively rebuilt in the C19 and, part of the front wall removed. Its upper part is divided axially forming a small dairy at the rear into which the substantial curving rear wall of the hall stack projects. The small room in front was formerly entered by a wide front doorway but this was later infilled and a window inserted. The lower (left) end wall of this front wall (but not the corresponding wall of the dairy) is also a later insertion, suggesting that originally only the dairy was enclosed out of the lower end, which is otherwise featureless and may always have been utilized for farm storage. 2 storeys. 4 window range. Principally C19 fenestration, 2-light case- ments, except at right end which has a C19 3-light casement above a Cl7 4-light ovolo mullion window. C19 3-light casement inserted in blocked lower end doorway. Interior: single chamfered cross beam with straight cut stops to front room of lower end. 2 cross ceiling beams and upper end bressumer to hall with diagonal cut stop chamfers. Straight cut stops to cambered lintel to hall fireplace which has bread oven in rear wall. 2 chamfered axial ceiling beams to inner room with hollow-step stops. C19 joinery principally intact including the 2 staircases although the hall staircase has lost some of its treads. Roof structure wholly replaced in C19 or early C20 except for a single principal at the lower end with its short curved foot bedded in the front wall and which is supported at its apex by the axial stone partition of the dairy. Solid stone walls also rise to the apex of the roof at each end of the hall.
