Details

SD 94 SE COWLING SHOP LANE 5/62 Long Croft and attached barn

II*

Farmhouse and attached barn, both probably circa 1700. Rubble with some ashlar (mainly to porch) and stone slate roof. Quoins to outer end of farmhouse only, and to barn. Farmhouse of 2½ storeys and 3 rooms on an L-plan. Main elevation, to south, of 2 windows with gable to right and porch between. The porch is of 2 storeys, the upper part carried out on a cyma string. Chamfered doorway. Window above, double chamfered with 5 stepped lights and answering hoodmould. To left is a 6-light double chamfered window with king mullion, that below with a hoodmould interrupted by the porch. To right similar windows except that to attic, which is of 3 stepped lights. The side is mostly plain but has double chamfered windows of 6-lights (reduced to 5 by a later door), 4-lights and to the attic of 3-lights (blocked but said to be well preserved inside). Some other chamfered windows at rear. One chimney on ridge. Interior of farmhouse: Baffle entry against massive fireplace in room to left, with radiation of voussoirs continued in jambs. Similar but moulded fireplace to kitchen at rear and decorated linked to former doorway between kitchen and parlour. Stone spiral stair, now repaired in slate. Roof said to have king-post truss with fishbone and angle struts. The barn is possibly earlier than the house but has no dateable fetures and a replaced queen-post roof. An exceptionally well-preserved building from the last phase of the "Great Rebuilding", with good detail and an unusual plan (N.Y.C.V.B.S.G.).
