WICKHAM SKEITH WICKHAM STREET TM 06 NE 2/158 Street Farmhouse 29.7.55 (formerly listed as Street Farmhouse and barn)

GV II* Farmhouse. In several phases: C15 hall range, the service end to north possibly remodelled in C16, when a very narrow addition to east was made; in- line parlour block to south of c.1600; early-mid C17 addition to west of service end; parlour block extended to south in late C17. Timber framed and rendered. Roofs plaintiled to east and north, the remainder pantiled. 1½- storey hall range, remainder mainly 2 storeys with attics. Hall range and C16 addition to east are jettied to road frontage (north): exposed joist-ends, brackets and bressumer. Hall and parlour have C19 casement windows with slender horizontal glazing bars. One C16 hall window with roll-moulded mullions. 2 gabled dormers. Cross-entry has C18 door with 6 raised fielded panels and overlight; gabled timber trellis porch. A further old 6-panel raised and fielded door into parlour. C17 addition to south of parlour has mid C20 square-leaded windows and plank door. Stack at junction of hall and parlour with rebuilt axial shaft. West wing retains one C17 drop-finial and a mid C19 gable end window with 4 trefoil-headed lights; against the north wall is a later stack, perhaps early C18. Interior. 2-bay former open hall with heavily sooted crown-post roof. Open truss has arched-braced cambered tie beam and octagonal crown-post, moulded at cap and base, with 4-way bracing at head. Some medieval studding, especially in lower end of hall; part of one hall window with 7 square mullions. Intact 2-centre arched service doorways and part of similar rear cross-entry doorway. Very fine early-mid C16 inserted ceiling: main beams, forming T on plan, have multiple roll moulding with leaf stops, the bridging beam also embattled; roll-moulded joists, also with leaf stops. Similarly-moulded cornice, the clamp also embattled. Fine C16 screen against cross-passage has moulded muntins and 2 4-centre arched doorways. Open fireplace in hall has much original brickwork with lined mortar joints. 2-bay parlour addition, one bay containing the stack, which was probably rebuilt at this time. Plain first floor studding, ovolo-moulded ceiling beams on both floors, wind-braced clasped purlin roof. At junction with hall, cruck-like members support a raised tie beam. In west wing, plain studding and blocked ovolo-mullioned windows; ovolo-moulded tie beam with ornate stop chamfers; stepped butt-purlin roof. Contemporary with this wing is a good newel stair in service end of hall range, extending to attic. Addition to south of parlour has very plain framing and was probably service accommodation.
