ST BREWARD HIGHER LANK SX 07 NE 5/206 Higher Lank House -


Farmhouse now private house. Circa early C17. Stone rubble. Rag slate roof with gable ends. Stone rubble end stacks and front lateral hall stack with brick shaft. Plan: Probably 3 room and cross passage plan with lower end on left, heated by an end stack; hall heated by a front lateral stack and inner room to right heated by an end stack. Stone rubble cross walls on lower and probably higher side of of the hall. In circa mid C18 the hall was divided and a partition inserted across the rear to form a corridor. Possibly contemporary with this a stair was inserted in the hall, later replaced in the C19. The right hand side of the front elevation appears to have been partly rebuilt in the mid C19 with a straight joint directly to the left of the front lateral stack; there is no corresponding straight joint on the rear elevation. The front entrance, to left of centre has been blocked and window inserted. There is no evidence of a rear door to the passage on the plastered internal wall and the evidence on the external wall is obscured by an outshot extension, added to accommodate a dairy in circa early C19. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 7 window front, the right hand side of the house with the windows arranged symmetrically, the 16-pane sashes renewed in the late C20. Ground floor with 16-pane sash to left, C20 pane sash in partly blocked entrance with late C20 granite lintel and 2-light casement to left. Front lateral stack near centre with two 16-pane sashes flanking partly glazed door to right. First floor with seven 16-pane sashes, Small C20 extension on left hand gable end. Interior: Fireplaces blocked with C20 grates. Low plaster ceiling in right hand room. Several C18 2-panel doors with raised and fielded panels. First floor and roof structure not accessible. An inspection of the roof structure may help to date Higher Lank more accurately.
