1/310 Church Farmhouse including Bakehouse approx 1.5m to the east GV II

Farmhouse. Late C16/early C17 with some mid C19 and circa 1960-70 modernisation. Timber-framed. Ground floor level is underbuilt with C19 Flemish bond red brick with burnt headers, timber-framing above is tile-hung and east end wall is weatherboarded; brick stack and chimneyshaft; peg-tile roof.

Plan: 4-room plan farmhouse facing north. Entrance lobby containing the main stair is left of centre. Parlour at left (east) end and hall right of centre each have stacks backing onto the entrance lobby but their flues join into a single axial chimneyshaft above. Unheated room at the right (west) end. Fifth room beyond made by converting a lean-to outshot into domestic use.

Present layout has been made by adapting original late C16/early C17 3-room lobby entrance plan house. Left end parlour is intact although part at front has been partitioned off for a lavatory. The stack has been rebuilt. It is thought that a large stack serving back-to-back fireplaces originally occupied the full width of the present entrance lobby.' The hall (maybe also used as the kitchen) was originally a little larger. The partition between it and the unheated room has been removed and a new one erected a little further eastwards. Originally the unheated room was the service end. Mortises in the headbeam of the crosswall and the joists show that it was divided by an axial wall into 2 rooms and there was an original stair rising against the back wall. Presumably these were buttery and dairy. Secondary outshot at the right (west) end is now used as the kitchen.

Main house is 2 storeys with attics in the roofspace.

Exterior: Irregular 4-window front of C20 replacement casements with glazing bars. (Similar windows in the rear wall were inserted in the C20, the rear wall was formerly blind). Front doorway is left of centre and contains a C19 plank door behind a contemporary gabled porch on plain posts. Main roof is tall; it is gable-ended to left and hipped to right where it is carried down over the outshot. Left end gable is weatherboarded and it contains an early C19 window, the centre light of which has iron glazing bars including the top tier as a Gothick arcade.

Interior: Despite the C19 and C20 modernisation work a great deal of original carpentry remains. Most of the larger rooms have axial beams whilst the former hall/kitchen has a 4-panel intersecting beam ceiling. All the beams are chamfered with step stops. Much of the framing is exposed on the first floor; large framing with broad curving tension braces. 4-bay roof of tie- beam trusses with clasped side purlins and queen struts. Most of the common rafter couples are original.

Bakehouse: A small C19 bakehouse is built alongside the farmhouse. It is a small room with a gable-ended roof and large east end stack built of brick. Bakehouse is a weatherboarded frame on brick footings with peg-tiled roof.
