CHITTLEHAMPTON SS 62 SE 4/119 Former farmhouse used as shippon - approximately 30 metres north of Shilstone Farmhouse - II Farmhouse, converted to shippon in 1880's. Early C16 core, extended or rebuilt at left end in C17 and remodelled as a shippon in late C19. Unrendered stone rubble and cob with brick dressings. Part slate, part corrugated iron roof with gable ends, with higher ridge level to slate roof at left end. Plan: the surviving C16 and C17 core consists of a former open hall to right with floor and front lateral stack later inserted. Narrower parlour range added or rebuilt to left, the front wall set further back than that of the hall, probably because a right-angled wing, the rear wall of which partially survives in the rebuilt shippon, shared the same stack with the parlour and extended forward forming an L-shaped plain. In the 1880's when the new farmhouse was built, the old farmhouse was converted to a shippon, the walls being partially rebuilt and former openings altered. 2 storeys. Loft door above plank door to right of projecting front lateral stack, the shaft demolished. 2 ground floor windows to left with brick dressings. Interior: hall retains raised cruck truss, the principals resting on short timber pads, with 2 tiers of threaded purlins and threaded ridge purlin, all thoroughly smoke-blackened as is the exposed cob of the right gable end wall. Rough chamfered cross ceiling beam probably replacing original. Thin chamfered fireplace lintel. Parlour has chamfered cross ceiling beam and bressumers with hollow bar stops (some have been cut away) and scratch moulded joists. Part of the lintel to the infilled fireplace survives, cut away at right end to make doorway through into front wing. The clean C17 truss over the parlour is of unusual construction reflecting its narrower width, with a full principal to rear with short cranked foot, and smaller principal to front resting on the stack, both formerly with 2 tiers of threaded purlins and ridge purlin and typical C17 lap-jointed collar. The survival of the core of the original farmhouse at Shilstone reflects the general policy of the Rolle Estate when rebuilding many of their farmhouses in the late C19 to relocate the house on a new site and convert the original to farm storage (c.f. Lerwell Farmhouse, Chittlehapton, q.v.)
