CORNWORTHY SX85NW CORNWORTHY 6/76 Berries Farmhouse Including Outbuilding Adjoining West


Farmhouse and adjoining outbuilding. Probably C16 or C17 remodelled in circa late C17 or Cl8. Roughcast stone rubble. Thatched roof with hipped end to the right and gable end to left. The adjoining outbuilding at the left end has a lower level corrugated iron roof with gable end, now a gablet which was formed by the lean-to against the left gable end. Rendered axial stack at the left hand end of the thatched roof, with tapered shaft and slate weathering and heightened in brick. Plan: The interior was inaccessible but the house appears to have a 3 room plan, the lower left end room is an outbuilding into which the house accommodation seems to have been extended incorporating the through passage but leaving the lower left end as a lofted outbuilding. The higher right end appears to have been remodelled probably in the late C17 or C18 when it was heightened to a full 2 storeys and provided with 2 nearly equal size rooms with a cross-passage between. The left hand of the 2 rooms would have been the former hall which is heated from a stack at its left end backing onto the former passage; the right hand room is slightly smaller and apparently unheated. The staircase rises from the back of the present passage against the back wall of the former hall, possibly in front of a truncated lateral stack which would have preceded the halls axial stack. There is a circa c18 or C19 lean-to outbuilding at the lower end. Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window front of the house section to the right with 3 small C19 casements with glazing bars on the first floor and 2 larger C20 casements on the ground floor; the 3 first floor windows and the ground floor right hand window have slate sill. The doorway slightly to right of centre has a C20 glazed door. The outbuilding to the left has a lower roof level and 3 irregularly spaced ground floor windows, 2 small C20 casements to the right and a very small, probably C19, fixed-light window to the left with 9 panes. The rear elevation is rendered at the higher left hand end. The doorway (to the former passage) has a C19 glazed and panelled door. To the left of the door the rear wall projects slightly. To the right of the doorway 2 crude corbelled steps up to the loft doorway, to the right of which is a blocked ventilation slit. The lower end wall is partly built of cob and the later lean-to at this end has a rafter which is a reused principal with a mortice for a threaded purlin. Interior: not inspected.
