GAHLINGAY CHURCH STREET TL 2452 (North side) 12/51 No 61 (Church Farmhouse)


House. Mid C16 and late C17 or early C18. Altered particularly on the front in C19-C20. Timber framed, part roughcast rendered and part white brick casing. Plain tiles to original steeply pitched roof. Internal stack inserted to rear pitch. Two bay C16 range extended in late C16 by two bays at the west end. Two storeys. First floor originally jettied, (the soffit of the bressummer is visible above the doorway) with the joists cogged to the bressummer. Two first floor, flush frame sixteen pane hung sashes, C19. Two ground floor windows on either side of doorway, deeply recessed in the original ground floor wall. On the west late C17-early C18 range. Timber framed, roughcast rendered west gable end and white brick casing to front wall. Steeply pitched plain tiled roof and gault brick ridge stack, square on plan. One storey and attic. Two gable dormers. Two C19 windows. There are later lean-tos and outshuts at the rear. Interior: Wall framing of substantial scantling visible at first floor and wind braced side purlin roof. The two bays to the east were a single room into which the stack was inserted in C17-C18. The ceiling has intersecting main beams one of which is partly obscured by the inserted inglenooks. The main beams are stop chamfered. The joists are of substantial scantling and are laid flat. They are unmoulded. It would seem that the two bays at the east end formed part of a larger building. Possibly they were a solar wing to a hall house, the hall of which was rebuilt at the west end in late C17 or early C18. However its location near the church may indicate a special purpose building.
