SS 81 SE CRUWYS MORCHARD 2/67 Lythe-land Farmhouse - II Farmhouse. Circa early C17, thorough C20 renovations. Whitewashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings; asbestos slate roof (formerly thatched), gabled at ends; projecting left end stone stack with stone shaft, axial stack with rendered shaft, C20 rear right stack. The C17 plan appears to have been a 3 room and through or cross passage arrangement, lower end to the right, with the hall stack backing on to the passage. The lower end, formerly heated from a stack on the right end wall of the room, appears to have served as a kitchen; the inner room as a very fine parlour. A small service room to the right end, adjoining the lower end room, is probably a post C17 addition. C20 renovations have been thorough: the roof has been replaced, the front elevation re- windowed and a 2-storey porch added. Internally a stair has been inserted into the former passage (replacing a stair against the front wall of the lower end room), the lower end stack has been moved to the rear wall and the right end service room, formerly unfloored, has had a floor inserted. 2 storeys with a C20 2-storey gabled porch into the former passage, asymmetrical 3:1:2 window front. Fenestration late C20. Interior : the principal historic interest of the house lies in the 2 left hand ground floor rooms, the C17 parlour and hall. The hall is very complete with richly- moulded crossbeams and scratch-moulded joists. The open fireplace is also very fine with an ovolo-moulded lintel, ashlar, ovolo-moulded jambs and a bread oven. At the dais end of the hall the C17 hall bench, supported on a moulded timber post and timber brackets is fixed in front of a section of C17 wall panelling crowned with a strapwork frieze. The inner room has a similar arrangement of bench and frieze against the partition wall of the hall, with a cornice above the frieze. There was formerly similar seating against one of the other walls, parts of this have been removed to the hall and some panelling, formerly in the inner room, has also been re- sited in hall. The lower end room has a deeply-chamfered axial beam (formerly a cross-beam). 2 exceptionally fine C17 rooms in a house with a very altered exterior.

These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
