5/153 Walnut Tree Cottage
- II
House; C15 or possibly C14, with major early C17 alterations. An open hall
house with cross-wing to left built in late C16/early C17. One storey with
attics; 2-storey crosswing. Timber-framed, encased in late C19 brick, now
painted. Thatched roof, half-hipped to right. An axial chimney with shaft
rebuilt in C19 gault brick. Two C19 eyebrow dormers with small-pane
casements. Late C19 windows with segmental heads; casements with either small
panes or leaded lights. C19 thatched lean-to entrance porch with C20 panelled
door. Interior: The open hall has exceptionally modest framing and is a rare
survivor of its status: the open truss has a tiebeam with curved chamfered
square-sectioned archbraces. One closed truss at the upper end of the hall
has widely-spaced studding and long slender arch windbraces. There is
evidence for an open-hall window in the rear wall. The right-hand (parlour)
cell has unchamfered 1st floor joists. A chimney was inserted, backing onto
the cross-passage, in late C16 or early C17. A 1st floor was inserted in the
hall, with chamfered joists, in C17 and the roof rebuilt in side-purlin form.
A crosswing was built in late C16/early C17 with chamfered elm floor joists
augmenting reused earlier unchamfered oak joists. Diamond-mullioned window
