2/7 Old Manor Cottage
(formerly listed as
29.7.55 Manor Cottages (pair))

- II

House; fragmentary late C13 core with alterations of several dates, principally
mid C16. 2 storeys, 4 windows. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof; an
axial chimney of C16 or C17 red brick. C18 and C19 small-pane casements. Two C19
entrance doors, one boarded and the other 4-panelled and half-glazed. At the right
hand end is a 4-bay building of late C13 or early C14 origin. The principal posts
have trenches for passing braces, suggesting aisles at both front and rear which
were later removed. Fine splayed and tabled scarf joints with undersquinted butts.
The roof is of coupled rafter form and of uncertain date, with slender square-
sectioned components: light smoke blackening, suggesting the presence of an open
hearth for only a short period. The roof was hipped at the right hand end until
C18/C19. Original tie-beams are mainly removed. C16 arch windbraced studding with
blocked diamond-mullioned windows; C16 upper floors with massive chamfered binding
beam and unchamfered heavy joists. Open lintelled fireplaces. The early C17
extension to left of chimney was probably a parlour block, with good framing. A
further late C18 extension to left is in poor framing; it would have been added
with the rear outshuts when the house was divided into 3 tenements. Although the
medieval work is rare, its historic value is reduced by the C16 remodelling.
