LANDKEY SS 52 NE 10/109 Lower Bableigh

II

Farmhouse, now house. Late C15/early C16, remodelled in C17 with C19 and C20 alterations. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof partially concealed by added parapet to front range. Brick stack at right end and at gable end of rear projection. T-shaped on plan. The late medieval front range, which has only a single room each side of the through-passage, may well have once extended further to left, the adjoining house now occupying the site. In C17 the room to left, originally the hall was floored over. In late C18 or early C19 the rear right-angled gabled dairy and kitchen extension was added. 2-storeys, 3- window range. C20 fenestration. Gabled slate roof to porch with 1/2-glazed inner door. Ovolo moulded beam to hall. Part of dairy fittings intact. The right-hand through-passage wall forms a solid cob partition to the apex of the roof with no sign of smoke-blackening to the purlins it supports on the right hand side. To the left over the hall a single truss with short very slightly curved feet and cranked collar morticed into the soffits of the principals is thoroughly smoke-blackened as are the 2-tiers of threaded purlins it carries.
