NUNEATON AND BEDWORTH ARBURY PARK SP38NW 4/27 Park Farmhouse

II*

Farmhouse. Circa late C15; remodelled and extended in circa late C16 or early C17 and with C18/19 alterations. Timber-framed with red brick infill. Plain tile roofs with gabled ends. Large sandstone lateral and axial stacks with brick shafts. PLAN: T-shaped plan. Main range is the remains of a late Medieval house, its surviving 3 bays appear to have been completely open to the roof, the 2 left [south-west] bays heated from an open hearth fire. In circa late C16 or early C17 a floor and axial stack were inserted into this open hall and the putative fourth bay at the south-west end was replaced by a 2-storey crosswing with a lateral stack on the side. The right [north-east] bay was probably left open to the roof until later . EXTERIOR: 2-storey croswing on left ; 1-storey and attic 4-window range on right. Main range has C19 plank door in angle. Small window above. C19 canted bay window to right has moulded cornice and right part of brick has C19 3-light window, both with glazing bars. 2 gabled dormers have leaded arched casements with simple Y-tracery. Crosswing has 2-light first-floor casement with horizontal glazing bar. Right hand north-east gable end has exposed cruck truss. Rear wall partly rebuilt in brick and with lean-to outshut and cart entrance to left of main range and outshut on south-west side of crosswing. INTERIOR: 3 full cruck trusses [possibly fourth buried in south-west wall] with small yokes at apex supporting a square-set ridgepiece, and with side purlins set on backs of principals; the centre and left [south-west] bays with curved wind-braces and smoke-blackened; the sooting apparently spreading into right [north-east] bay; trusses are now closed. Left bay [hall] has inserted intersecting ceiling beams with alternating hollow and roll mouldings. Blocked fireplaces. Box-frame crosswing with jowled storey-posts, tension-braces, cambered tie-beam and curved windbraces; ground floor rooms in crosswing ceiled, kitchen at back and dairy at front with arcaded brick shelves,
