Details

LINKINHORNE SX 27 SE 6/28 Upton Hall Farmhouse with attached - wall II Farmhouse. Possibly,,late C17 origin, rebuilt in the late C18, with alterations of mid C19 and some later alterations. Slateatone and granite rubble with granite quoins; partly rendered. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends; gable end stack, in granite ashlar to right, slate-hung to left. Plan: Originally a 2-room plan; re-oriented and rebuilt circa late C18, so the left end room became the front left room, with a front passage and front right room; the new front range is of 2-room plan with central entrance to passage, each room heated by a gable end stack. Probably in the later C18, an outshut of one-room plan was added to rear right, in the angle with the earlier range; at the time of the re- orientation, the new front range was extended beyond the line of the original building, to form an overall T-plan: at the left side, a wall was built to enclose the rear of the garden, with niches which way have been bee-boles. Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical 3-window front; at first floor, all C19 16-pane sashes; ground floor has central half-glazed door with flat-roofed porch on plain granite monolithic piers; to right a 12-pane sash with sidelights and cambered granite head, to left a 16-pane sash with cambered granite head. Straight joint to left of the window to left. Rubble wall attached to left, about 5 metres long, with 3 flat-headed niches, possibly bee-boles, with southerly orientation. The right side has a granite ashlar stack rising from the slope of the outshut roof. Left side has the gable end of the front range slate-hung; the rear wing is rendered, with 9-pane casement at first floor. The gable end of the rear wing is also rendered, with C20 window at ground floor and large 16-pane sash at first floor. The rear of the outshut has C20 window at ground floor, and raking dormer with 2-light casement; there is a triangular projection in the wall at the junction with the early range, to give access to the rear room. Interior: The room to front right has a gable end fireplace with flat chamfered granite lintel. This may have been re-sited, as the wall thickness is consistent along what would have been the original front wall of the house.
