TM 17 NE
8/73 No.20 (Corn House) &
No.22 (Three Trees)
Originally one house, now divided unequally into 2. In 3 main phases: c.1500,
mid C16 and late C16. Timber framed and plastered under a thatched roof. 2
storeys. 4 windows, C19 3-light small-paned casements. On the ground floor
are 2 mid C16 windows with moulded mullions. No.22 has a C19 boarded door,
No.20 a mid C20 4-panel door. Bracketed drip boards over the C19 ground floor
windows and both doorways. Internal stack with C20 common brick shaft. Heavy
C19 stack against right gable end. Earliest phase is to left (No.22) and
comprises a former open hall in 2 unequal bays. There is a butt purlin roof,
a very unusual medieval form. The open truss has long arched braces to a
slightly cambered collar; unusually there is no tie beam. All roof components
are heavily sooted. In the mid C16 the service end was incorporated in a 2-
bay unheated parlour. This has a good ceiling with moulded bridging beam on
storey posts with carved heads; the joists have a single roll moulding. The
roof over this section is partly of butt purlin form, with clasped purlins
where extended; cranked wind braces. There is light sooting, suggesting the
open hearth was retained when the parlour was added. In late C16 a stack was
inserted into the lower bay of the medieval hall, which was ceiled over with
plain joists set flat. At about this time a service cell was added and the
functions of hall and parlour were reversed. There is evidence for 2 square-
headed doorways in the service partition. The roof over the service cell is
of clasped purlin form, without sooting.
