RATTLESDEN BRETTENHAM ROAD TL 95 NE 3/81 Barkers Farmhouse - - II Former farmhouse, early C17, 2 storeys, originally with attics. 3-cell cross- entry plan. Timber framed and plastered; above the rear cross-entry doorway, now within a C19 lean-to extension, is a plaster panel bearing a C17 pargetted figure of a rampant lion, almost full-size. Roman pantiled C19 roof. An axial chimney of red brick, the narrow brickwork of the shaft is exposed more fully than formerly by the lower pitch of the later roof: the 4 square shafts in larger red bricks are possibly a later C17 rebuilding. C19 small-pane casements. Boarded door at cross-entry position. Despite loss of roof, a good example of an early C17 farmhouse. Studding with long tension- studbraces. Diamond-mullioned windows in hall and service cell, and ovolo- mullioned in parlour cell; a number of both types complete, and one glazed. Square headed chamfered twin service room doorways with plank doors. On-edge floor joists, rather slender for date. Lintelled open fireplace in hall, brick arched fireplaces in 3 other rooms, all original.
