BRILLEY CP - SO 25 SE 2/13 Llanhedry Farmhouse 19.8.53 - II Farmhouse, now divided into two houses. C14 or C15 origins, altered C17, mid-C19 and late C20. Timber-framed, partly cased in coursed painted rubble, part weatherboarded with slate and corrugated metal roofs, hipped at east end and three rebuilt brick ridge stacks. Originally a central hall range of probably four framed bays aligned east/west with cross-wings at each end. The west cross-wing survives and has a large external rubble chimney with tiled offsets and a rendered brick stack in the south-east angle. The east cross-wing has gone but there is a two-bay service wing to the rear of the east bay with an external chimney and large diagonal rubble chimney on the east side which may represent part of it. Part single storey and attic with dormers, part two storeys. Framing: not visible externally but the south gable end of the cross-wing has a jettied first floor on shaped brackets. North front elevation: hall has two buttresses probably added in the C19. Windows are mainly C20 casements. Hall part has a 4-light and a 2-light window on both floors. The main entrance adjacent to the cross-wing has a lean-to rubble porch with a catslide roof and round- headed archway and there is large door within, possibly C17. Cross-wing has a lean-to outshut at the gable end and two 2-light C19 first floor case- ments in the angle. Interior: only partly inspected but some substantial wall-framing survives and also a C17 doorway with a shallow triangular head. There is recorded to be at least one cruck truss surviving inside and a C17 ceiling in the former hall. (RCHM, III, p 24, item 6; BoE, p 86; Alcock, NW: CBA Cruck Catalogue, 1981).
