Details

ADVENT SX 18 SW 5/16 New Hall Farmhouse - II*

Farmhouse. Circa late C16 or earlier. Local stone rubble with dressed quoins and some evidence of lime wash. Rag slate roof with gable ends and gable end to hall bay on left. Gabled end to rear wing on left. Large stone rubble projecting hall stack with cloam oven projection. Stone rubble stack on right hand gable end. Plan : Ground rises to left hand side and steeply to rear of house. The original plan is uncertain although the house appears to have had a through passage with 2 or more rooms. The left hand room, the hall, remains heated by a front lateral stack with cloam oven projection and probably a smoking chamber adjoining on right. The entrance to the through passage remains on the right although the rear door has been blocked. The gable end wall on the right was probably the stone rubble cross wall on the lower side of the passage and the single storey outshot on the right is probably on the site of the original lower end, the front wall probably incorporating much of the earlier masonry and the rear wall rebuilt in the C20. This room was heated by an axial stack (now the gable end stack) which backed onto the lower side of the passage. The partition on the higher side of the passage has been removed. The stair projection, to the rear towards the lower side of the hall has been partly incorporated into the rear wing to the rear of the hall. The original arrangement is uncertain. In spite of the roof trusses having been replaced in the C18 and C19, it is reasonable to suggest that the hall may have originally been open to the roof and heated by an open hearth fire because the existing hall stack and hall bay seem to be early C17 additions. Furthermore although the rear wing appears to post date the hall with a ragged masonry joint between the 2 ranges, the walls are very thick and the wing has been built into the side of the hill, suggesting that this building maybe on the site of an earlier house which would have been built down the slope, the later house added on the lower side across the slope. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with 2-storey hall bay on right, projecting front lateral hall stack and truncated lower end on right. Hall bay has a 3-light mullion window on the ground floor with hood mould, the mullions removed. 2-light mullion window on first floor. Projecting hall stack joins on right with cloam oven projection. To right, a circa early C19 stone rubble porch with slate lean-to roof with C19 door to original through passage and granite chamfered surround to window to left with stanchion bar removed; this window appears to have been blocked when a smoking chamber was built to the side of the fireplace. First floor with 2-light mullion window and 4 pigeon holes. Single storey outshot on right on site of earlier lower end. Possible straight joint on left hand side wall where the hall bay appears to have been added. Rear elevation with stair projection in angle of front range and rear wing. Interior : the hall on left has wany floor joists possibly of the C17 with chamfer and 1 joist with a run-out stop. Projecting bay at front of the hall. Chamfered granite lintel and jambs to fireplace with pyramid stops. Large cloam oven with clay door. Possibly smoking chamber adjoins fireplace on lower left hand side, now a cupboard but with indication of thick layer of soot and opening from chamber into flue. Behind the smoking chamber a window on the exterior. The stone stair to the rear of the hall has been partly remodelled. Roof trusses have been replaced in the C18, C19 and C20 with 2 earlier pieces of roughly cut purlins. The house is little altered and exceptionally picturesque with an early interesting plan.
