3/92 Great Deptford Farmhouse with dairy and cider house attached at - west end - II Farmhouse with attached dairy and cider house. Late medieval in origin, remodelled in late C16 and early to mid C17, reroofed and altered in late C19, and with some C20 alterations. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob, with some brick dressings. Slate roof with gable ends. Brick shaft to stone rubble stack at right gable end, and 2 tall front lateral stacks with tapered caps heightened in brick, heating hall and lower end, the latter with offsets. Plan: 3-room and passage containing staircase, with attached dairy and cider house at left end. Development: replacement of entire roof structure in C19 has obscured earlier phases, but smoke-blackening to the hall side of the hall/inner room solid wall partition indicates a former open hall house. The large cross ceiling beam chamfered on the upper side towards the lower end of the hall suggests a possible jettied arrangement with the lower end to the left having been ceiled first, followed by the hall proper, probably in late C16. The massive solid cob and stone partition rising to the apex of the roof between the hall and inner room and the C17 scratch- moulded joists to the inner room suggests the latter may be an addition to an original 2-room and cross-passage plan. The inner room has an axial partition towards the rear creating a small rear passage leading to a winder staircase towards the right gable end. In C19, a staircase was inserted filling the passage and the lower end considerably altered, the cider house being added at the same time and the dairy largely rebuilt. 2 storeys. Farmhouse has 4-window range, principally early C20 fenestration with, from left end, a 2-light casement, 3 panes per light, twin 2-light casements, 4 panes per light and two 3-light casements, 3 panes per light. Ground floor has large leanto porch at left end with C19 inner plank door, 3-light casement 6 panes per light to left of shallow late C19 brick porch with patterned slate leanto roof and 6- panelled door, the upper 3 panels glazed, to cross-passage doorway. C20 2-light window and C20 flat roofed conservatory extension at right end. Cider house at left end has 3-window range with brick surrounds to 2 left-hand ground floor windows, plank door to right, and external steps to loft door at left gable end. Interior: lower end remodelled in C19, but probably earlier fabric concealed. Axial chamfered ceiling beam with pyramid stops to dairy which retains slate slabs. Hall has fireplace rebuilt in C20 but retaining chamfered timber lintel. 2 cross ceiling beams, that towards lower end chamfered on upper side only, with keel stops, except to front end of lower end beam which has pyramid type stop. Bressumer at upper end of hall, also keel-stopped but unfinished at front end. Raised and fielded 2- panelled door from hall to passage to rear of inner room. Chamfered cross ceiling beam to inner room, withoriginal joists, those to hall side are scratch-moulded, those towards gable end are partly scratch-moulded, partly unfinished.
