HER Number:MDV40254
Name:31 Ford Street, Moretonhampstead

Summary

House in a row, probably part of a larger house originally. Circa 16th century or early 17th century, with later alterations including remodelling of circa mid-19th century. Rendered stone. Dry slate roof with gabled ends abutting adjoining buildings to left and right and with continuous roof line with ring of bells guest house adjoining left. In spite of the 19th century remodelling this is undoubtedly an early building with an impressive granite lateral stack at the rear, and the front with its original granite doorway and 19th century fenestration makes a valuable contribution to Ford Street.

No 31 and arched doorway (formerly listed as Arch to entry leading to No 33) Ford Street (south side), Moretonhampstead.
House in a row, probably part of a larger house originally. Circa 16th century or early 17th century, with later alterations including remodelling of circa mid-19th century. Rendered stone. Dry slate roof with gabled ends abutting adjoining buildings to left and right and with continuous roof line with ring of bells guest house adjoining left. Projecting granite rear lateral stack, with granite thatched weathering and tapered shaft and cap.
Plan uncertain but it appears to be section of possibly a three-room plan house and may be the hall with a rear lateral stack and part of the lower end including the passage. Eaves seem to have been raised. Interior not inspected therefore internal plan uncertain but later passageway has been put through left-hand end.
Two storeys. Asymmetrical but regular three-window range. First floor three mid-19th century 12-pane sashes. Ground floor right two similar but 4-pane sashes. To left of centre a probably 17th century or early 17th century granite chamfered 4-centred arch doorway, the stops if they existed have been trimmed off. Segmentally headed narrow doorway to later passageway to left. At rear 20th century windows and large projecting granite lateral stack. Attached to the stack at right angles is a late 19th century single storey brick outbuilding.
Interior not accessible at time of survey 1985. In spite of the 19th century remodelling this is undoubtedly an early building with an impressive granite lateral stack at the rear, and the front with its original granite doorway and 19th century fenestration makes a valuable contribution to Ford Street.
