7/76 Helewood Farmhouse -


Farmhouse. Circa early/mid C17. Stone rubble; asbestos slate roof (formerly thatched), gabled at ends; end stacks, the right end stack projecting with set-offs. Plan: Interesting for the date: single depth main range, almost symmetrical, compact plan with a kitchen to the left, parlour to the right on either side of what was almost certainly a lobby entrance in front of an unheated central dairy. The partition between lobby and dairy has been removed and a stair inserted in the former dairy. Single-storey rear lean-to a post C17 addition; probably C20 1 room plan rear left addition. A probably early C20 photograph in the possession of the owner shows the building thatched with a thatched single-storey block at the left end which no longer exists. Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3 window front with a circa mid C19 gabled stone porch in the centre with an ornamental slate roof. 3-light casement windows, some with square leaded panes, probably early C19. Interior: Both kitchen and parlour have deeply-chamfered scroll-stopped crossbeams and original fireplaces. The kitchen fireplace has a massive chamfered stopped lintel which extends over a curving chamber; chamfered stopped lintel to parlour fireplace. C17 chamfered doorframe on rear wall of kitchen. Position of original stair uncertain. Roofspace Not inspected at time of survey (1986).
