The Fleece & No.65


2 dwellings, one a public house. Late medieval core with mid C16 in-line
addition and C17 alteration. Timber framed, plastered in panels, roof of
concrete pantiles. A single long range. 2 storeys and attic. Various
casement windows, mostly C19, a range of 6 to upper floor. The Fleece has a
C20 semi-glazed door and bracketed hood. Plank door to No.65. Central
internal stack with plain axial shaft; a further axial-shafted stack to left
and a small stack against the right gable end. Late C19 full-height addition
on left gable end, the front corner chamfered: red brick, gault brick
dressings; inset sash windows. Interior. Earlier work to right of stack
comprises hall range, partly in No.69 where the timbers are concealed. The
portion in The Fleece has a low ceiling of heavy plain joists and an intact
open fireplace with C19 oven and copper. This section was raised c.1.2m in
C17, the old wallplate exposed only at the rear. Clasped purlin roof. To
left of stack, a 2-bay hall and one-bay service cell. Hall has moulded main
beam, joists and mid rail, the joists in the upper bay damaged by fire mid
C20. Open fireplace in hall has replacement lintol. Closely-spaced heavy
plain joists in service end, with evidence for axial partition; cross
partition with hall removed. Most of timbers on upper floor concealed. Roof
is a later reconstruction, perhaps of C18.
