3/101 Lions Farmhouse -

- II

Farmhouse. C17 and date plaque of 1696, modernised and enlarged in late C19. The walls are plastered and the materials unknown but the original section is probably cob on rubble footings whilst the extensions are brick or stone rubble; one of the stacks maybe cob, another is late C17 brick and the extension has a late C19 brick kitchen stack; slate roof. The main block has a 2-room plan with central cross passage and faces east. The left (southern) room has an end stack and the right room has a projecting end stack. The rear blocks are under parallel roofs at right angles to the main range appear to be late C19 and include contemporary stair and kitchen. 2 storeys. Symmetrical main front has 2 ground floor and 4 first floor windows. All are similar late C19 casements and those on the first floor are half dormers with gabled roofs. Contemporary part-glazed and panelled front door with slate-roofed monopitch hood on curving brackets is set a little right of centre. The main roof is gable- ended. These gables and those of the half dormers have similar wavy-shaped barge boards. The right end stack has weathered offsets and the original chimney shaft contains a limestone plaque inscribed TRA 1696. The shaft has been extended with late C19 brick. Interior is largely the result of the late C19 refurbishment although much of the C17 fabric remains in the front block. The axial beam across the right room and cross passage is boxed in but that in the left room is soffit-chamfered with exaggerated scroll stops. Both fireplaces are blocked. The roof was not examined since the extension of the right and chimney shaft suggests that the roof was replaced at a higher level in the late C19.
