Details

GOLBORNE POCKET NOOK LANE SJ 69 NW (north side) 5/16 Fair House Farmhouse II House. C17. Timber-framed structure which is concealed by render. Repairs and additions in brick. Slate roof. 3-unit, lobby-entrance plan with total of 5 bays and 2 storeys. Original door to right of bay 3. Later door to bay 4. Bay 1 projects as a gabled crosswing with a door in the angle. All the windows are replacement casements many having been altered. Continuous outshut added to rear. Chimney stack on rear slope. The inside contains a remarkably complete pair of back-to-back inglenook fireplaces including smoke hoods. The bressumer beams and other ceiling beams are ovolo-moulded with stepped stops. Various timber-framed components are clearly visible including some principal posts, king-post roof trusses and crosswalls one of which has curved diagonal braces at tie beam level. The building is an important survival in many respects, not least as an example of timber-framing in an area where little remains.
