SS74NW WEST ILKERTON 858-1/2/98 West Ilkerton Farmhouse and attached wall


Farmhouse. Early C17, much reconstructed and extended C19 and C20. Rubble or rendered rubble, slate roof, stone stacks. 3-room cross-passage plan, and formerly with the house at the right-hand (NE) end, an attached byre to the left; the byre now part of the domestic premises, including a C20 bay at the outer end. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 3+3-window range. Windows all 2 or 3-light casements, mainly C19; at first floor are small casements at eaves level to the left of a wide gable over deep 2- and 3-light, with a further 3-light to a small half-dormer gable far right. The ground floor has a 2-light and single-light in the left-hand section, and two 2-light and a 3-light to the right. Between the parts is a large gabled porch with outer opening pointed, and square rubble stacks to the right of the passage opposite the porch, and to the right gable. The gable end to the lane is part of the C20 extension, and there is a lean-to across the rear wall. INTERIOR: the house, to the right, has the main parlour to the right, with a low compartmental ceiling having early C17 beams and rafters with pyramid-stopped chamfers. The main fireplace, backing on the passage, has a renewed bressumer. Opposite the fireplace is a door in the far left corner, and a full-width panelled early C17 bench. The roof was not inspected, but appears to have been replaced in the C19. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached to the outer gable is a rubble wall approx 2.1m high and extending approx 8m across the yard to a plain stopped end. The yard is mainly cobbled; the range of buildings (not included) to the S has been converted to domestic use. Although much altered in the C19, this building has retained important elements of its early fabric. The plan form and position of the cross passage indicates that this building originated as a longhouse type of dwelling, one of a number which survive on the fringes of Exmoor.
