SX26NE Halbathick Farmhouse 979-1/2/1 31/01/91


Farmhouse, now disused. Probably early C17, partly rebuilt later C17, slightly remodelled in mid C19. Stone rubble walls with some granite dressings; dry Delabole slate roofs with gable ends including rear stair wing and sweeping lower at rear right; original rubble stacks over cross wall towards right and over right-hand end. 3-room and through-passage plan with lower end (left) roofless following a fire and now partly ruinous, plus late C17 stair wing behind deeper central hall and integral pantry outshut behind parlour, on right. Later shallow wash house with copper, now ruinous, in front of lower end. 2 storeys. Irregular 2-window east range has slightly projecting central hall front with wide drip mould of former hall window, rebuilt under and to left circa mid C19 and with 16-pane 2-light casement; above former hall window is an early C19 two-light casement with 5 horizontal glazing bars to left-hand light and later casement with 4 horizontal bars on its right. Parlour front, partly rebuilt circa mid C19, has doorway towards left with ledged door, small window with horizontal glazing bar in partly blocked tall opening and 16-pane 2-light casement on the right, both windows with iron stanchions; 12-pane 2-light casement to 1st floor. Middle and head or sill of 2-light C17 mullioned window reused as quoin on right. Rear of stair wing has later window to gable end but 2 blocked window openings in the left-hand angle. Projection to right-hand gable is probably an oven. Studwork partitions of hall/chamber to through passage are sheeted over with corrugated iron. INTERIOR retains many original C17 features including flat-chamfered granite fireplace to hall, hollow-chamfered one to parlour and hearthstone of probably C17 fireplace to chamber above parlour; plastered hall ceiling and plaster chamber ceilings with feet of probably C17 trusses visible; ovolo-moulded doorframe between hall and parlour and dogleg stair with unusually wide upper flight and turned balustrade to landing. Also some C19 features including parlour ceiling joists and late C19 iron grate to chamber over parlour. Keeping places at parlour end are probably original. Lying near the front are chamfered jambs of probably former doorway with ball stops. Halbathick is an interesting example of C17 plan development and except for the partial loss of its lower end has been unaltered since the C19.
