Site Event/Activity record EEM14900 - 1987: HBR - Worthy
Somerset Vernacular Building Research Group
The building was subject to a measured survey in October 1987. The surveyor states that the late medieval house was in the form of an open hall with hearth. A lateral fireplace and stair turret were added, possibly in the 16th Century (at the same time as a large inner room). A solar over a pantry and buttery were located at the lower (northern) end of the hall. A 17th Century extension was added on the west of the hall, which may have held a grand staircase, and a wing was added at a later date.
