TM 17 NE
8/68 Abbey View
House. Late C15 with mid C17 rear wing forming L-shape plan. Alterations of
c.1600, c.1700 and c.1924. Timber framed, the facade and gable ends encased
in red brick c.1924 with white brick dressings at the angles. Plastered to
rear. Roof has double Roman tiles to front and pantiles to rear. 2 storeys
and attic. A former open hall house of 3-cell form. 3 windows, 3-light
casements under segmental lintols. 2 C17 mullioned windows have been opened
out to the rear. Lobby entrance with mid C20 6-panel door and open lean-to
porch. Internal stack. 2 further stacks to rear wing, one at the gable end.
An intact frame in 4 bays, with almost straight arched braces. Evidence for
original diamond-mullioned windows. Cambered tie beam over former open hall
has evidence for crown-post. The parlour, entered by an original 4-centre
arched doorway, has substantial plain joists, perhaps a replacement ceiling of
C16 date. In c.1600 the hall was floored over with an axial bridging beam and
chamfered joists, a stack being inserted into the upper bay at the same time.
Intact hall fireplace with evidence for lining of the mortar joists. In
c.1700 the walls were raised over one metre although the present roof is of
c.1924. Oak newel stair in 2 flights. Parlour chamber has duck's nest grate
of c.1800. 2-cell mid C17 wing to rear was probably a separate dwelling:
ceilings with plain joists; original open ground floor fireplace.
