ST 01 SE UFFCULME ASHILL 4/153 Batt's Farmhouse - - II Detached house, formerly a farmhouse. Probably late C15, much altered, especially in the late C16 and C17. Roughcast cob on stone footings; gable end asbestos tiled roof. Formerly a 3-room, through-passage plan house, the service end to the right of the passage. The smoke-blackened medieval roof survives over the hall, and it is clear that the whole house was originally open to the roof. The inner room (with end stack) was possibly the first part of the house to receive a first floor. Hall heated by internal rear lateral stack with brick shaft; service end floored and the end stack inserted in the C17. A newel post to the rear of the hall marks the position of the C17 stairs. 2 storeys. Exterior. Front: 4-window range. First floor with C19 3 and 4-light casement windows. 5 ground floor 2, 3 and 4-light casement windows, some of them C19, with 2 doors under tiled canopies. Rear: 5 first floor windows to first floor; one 3-light early C19 pegged casement window to ground floor. Pantiled leanto. Interior: inner room with 1 full and 2 half-axial ceiling beams, chamfered with roll stops. Fireplace with timber lintel and jambs with continuous chamfer. The through-passage has been removed and this creates a large room on the site of the original hall, with cross ceiling beams, chamfered with hollow step stops. Service end with 3 axial ceiling beams, all unchamfered, that to the centre resting on a chamfered post. Fireplace (with evidence of a bake oven) now blocked. Roof: 2 jointed crucks over the hall, both side pegged. The apex carpentry is different on each, that to the service end with a saddle, that to the higher end with a yoke and a cranked collar, but both carrying the same diagonal ridge piece. Service end with 2 much later trusses, halved, crossed and pegged at apex.
