5/39 Cobbs Farmhouse 22.5.78


A two storey and attic timber framed farmhouse with rendered walls and steep half-hipped clay peg tile roof. C17 or early C18 appearance externally but originally a C15 hall house with one (and probably a second) crosswing. Large red brick C17 chimney stack on ridge. The left hand hipped end of the front projects and this is the surviving crosswing presumed to have contained the solar. Lattice casement C2 windows. Hipped dormer in centre of main roof pitch. To the rear a C17 stair tower. Inside the hall space has been much altered, the floor probably inserted in the C16. The main roof is of collar truss type incorporating re-used timbers and is probably C18. But a side purlin windbrace roof structure survives under the C18 roof over the crosswing probably a C17 reroofing (RCHM1 ).
