3/56 'Four Ashes'


House. C16. Timber-framed and roughcast-rendered; roman tiles. 2 storeys;
3-cell plan. An internal chimney-stack with a plain shaft of old red bricks.
4 plain 2-light casement windows to the upper floor; 2 3-light and 2 2-light
standard windows to ground floor, all mid C20. C20 plank door and open gabled
brick porch. A single-storey rendered lean-to extension on the left gable
end. Frame in 4 bays with cross-entry. The central 2-bay ground floor room
has a main beam with 3" chamfer and triangle stops. The chimney-stack, with 2
back-to-back hearths, intrudes into one bay of this room, and since there is
no chimney-bay seems likely to be secondary. The gable end wall of the
parlour (on left) has been removed to extend into the lean-to. In the room
above, good exposed studding, tension bracing and blocked original diamond-
mullioned windows. There is no evidence of original partitioning on the upper
floor: the 3 cambered tie-beams have the remains of arched braces and the
bases of plain square crown-posts are visible below the upper ceilings. No
smoke-blackening visible; the remainder of the roof inaccessible. An earlier
stack may have been on the central part of the rear wall, where no studding
can be seen.
