DITTISHAM SX85SW CAPTON 10/265 Mannings Farmhouse


Small house, formerly a farmhouse. Probably early C18, extended in late C18 or early C19 and much restored and extended again in late C20. White- painted slate rubble, the left hand end rendered. Thatched roof with gabled ends rendered gable end stacks, the left hand stack is now an axial stack because of the late C20 addition at the left end. Plan: The original circa early C18 house had a 2-room plan with gable-end stacks and a central entrance, the lower left hand room was probably the kitchen, the right hand room may have been unheated. In late C18 or early Cl9 a 1-room plan extension was added to the higher right hand end with a gable end stack, and in the late C20 another 1-room plan extension was built at the lower left hand end, projecting slightly at the back with small single storey wing behind.Exterior: 2 storeys. A long asymmetrical 4-window range. The 2 window bays at the centre are the original house. The right hand 1-window bay is set back slightly and is the circa late C18 or early C19 addition; the left hand 1-window bay is the late C20 addition. All late C20 1 and 2 light casements, except for the 2 ground floor centre windows which are circa early C20 or possibly late C19 central doorway with late C20 plank door and late C20 porch with conical thatched canopy. The doorway and the flashing ground floor windows have cambered arches, the other openings have timber or possibly concrete lintels. The rear elevation has a small C19 2-light casement on the first floor with glazing bars and another on the ground floor below; the other ground floor windows and garden door are late C20. The late C20 extension to the right projects and has a small late C20 single storey wing. Interior: Much altered and some of the floors have been replaced, the fireplaces altered and part of the wall between the right hand end room and the room to the right of centre has been demolished. The roof structure was not inspected but it is said to have roughly fashioned principals.
