2/8 Woodhouse Farmhouse

- II

Public building, now a house. Early C16, altered in early C19. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing SW, with later C16 stack in second bay from left end, against front wall. C18/19 single-storey lean-to at left end, with 2 stacks, and gabled oven to left of the rear stack. Single-storey extension to rear of left end, with slate roof. Small 2-storey closet extension to rear near right end, C17/18. 2 storeys and attic. Ground floor, 2 early C19 sashes of 16 lights. First floor, 3 early C19 sashes of 4 + 8 lights. Early C19 6-panel door, top 2 panels glazed, in moulded architrave with paterae. Full-length jetty underbuilt with painted brick. Left end of roof hipped with a lean-to dormer in the hip. Jowled posts, heavy studding, chamfered binding and bridging beams with step stops. Chamfered wallplates with step stops. On the ground and first floors this building originally comprised an open area of 3 bays and a single bay at the right end, without an internal chimney. This is an unlikely plan in a domestic context, and implies that originally it was a public building such as a court hall or guildhall; it may have been moved from its original site. 2 internal cambered tiebeams, retaining one arched brace. Edge-halved and bridled scarfs in wallplates. 2 unglazed first-floor windows at the rear, one complete with 2 diamond mullions, the other with 2 of 3 diamond mullions. C17 internal doors. Roof rebuilt in C20. RCHM (Pattiswick) 5. Before enclosure this site faced a cowmon to the SW (Chapman and Andre, 1777). .
