TL 74 SW RIDGEWELL 3/42 Three Chimneys Farmhouse


House, C16 and C17, extended in C19. Timber framed, mainly plastered with some brick cladding, partly roofed with handmade red clay tiles. S crosswing of 2 bays, C16, and 3-bay range to N, C17. One axial chimney stack at the junction and 2 other axial stacks. N extension of red brick, late C19. Aspect E. Door of 6 fielded panels, rectangular light over with radiating tracery, 2 tripartite double-hung sash windows of 4-16-4 lights, one double-hung sash window of 16 lights, all early C19. On first floor, 4 double-hung sash windows of 16 lights, early C19. Some crown glass. In N extension, 2 casement windows on each floor, with brick labels over ground floor windows, C19. The S crosswing has jowled posts, curved braces trenched to the outside of heavy studding, binding beam originally moulded but later squared off, all joists of horizontal section with bowtell mouldings. Clasped purlin roof hipped to rear only. Main range has primary straight bracing, 2 plain-chamfered transverse beams (one with lamb's tongue stops), joists of vertical section. At the time of the survey, October 1983, the main range has been newly roofed, but the S chimney stack is partly demolished and the S crosswing is without roof cladding. This building is at the junction of 3 parishes, Stambourne, Ridgewell and Birdbrook. In the RCHM survey and the 1952 schedule it is included in Stambourne, but it is more appropriately included in Ridgewell, as the access is from this parish.
