CHAGFORD GREAT WEEKE SX 78 NW

4/110 Old farmhouse approximately 30 metres south of Great Weeke 22.2.67 Farmhouse

GV II

Old farmhouse, now converted to agricultural use. C16 and C17, probably abandoned in C19. Granite stone rubble with large dressed quoins, some cob on wall tops and some C20 mending in concrete blocks; disused granite ashlar stacks; corrugated iron roof (formerly thatch). Plan: originally a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing south with a lower end parlour at the right (eastern) end. It has an end stack with the remains of a stone newel stair alongside. There is now no longer a partition between the hall and inner room. The hall has a rear lateral stack and the inner room is terraced into the hillside. Since the original roof and some of the other carpentry has been renewed or removed it is not possible to outline the development of the farmhouse. It was formerly 2 storeys throughout but now only the passage is floored. Exterior: the front of the hall and inner room and the lower end parlour has been knocked out in order to use the rooms for farming purposes. This leaves only the passage section and it is buttressed to right. The front passage doorway contains a late C17-early C17 crank-headed doorframe with chamfered surround. The rear is more complete, at least from the hall stack to the lower end. The rear passage doorway contains the original C16 oak round-headed doorframe with chamfered surround. The lower end parlour and former chamber above each have probably C18 oak 3-light flat- faced mullion windows, the lower 1 larger. Roof is half-hipped each end. Interior: on both sides of the passage are rubble walls up to first floor level with framed partitions above. The lower (parlour) side contains an oak C17 chamfered doorframe, its stops cut out to let a barrel through. It contains a probably contemporary door; a plank-and-ledge door pegged together with strap hinges. The parlour fireplace is also C17; built of granite it has an ovolo- moulded oak lintel and contains a C19 brick-lined oven. The chimney breast has been demolished. Stone newel stairs to right. The hall has a massive fireplace of granite ashlar with hollow chamfered surround, probably mid or late C16. Large blocked window to left. All the crossbeams have been removed. At first floor level the lower passage frame closing a truss is the oldest. The frame is filled with wattle and daub and contains a probably C17 plank door. This frame fills a C16 clean face-pegged jointed cruck but the cruck posts were cut off, apparently in the C17 when the framed infill was put there. The truss over the upper passage partition and the next truss over the hall were probably true crucks but they too are cut off as the principals begin to turn to the posts. The rest of the roof is made up of heavily patched up C19 and C20 trusses. This old farmhouse forms part of a group with a number of other listed buildings in the hamlet of Great Weeke.
