Listing Text

TM 05 NW

2/34 Lawn Cottage (formerly
listed as premises situated
between Old Lawn Cottage and the
9.12.55 road)


House, late C15. A 3-cell open-hall house. 1 storey and attics. Timber-
framed and roughcast. Half-hipped roof, formerly thatched, now asbestos-
slated; one C20 raking dormer. C17 axial chimney of red brick. Early or mid
C20 casements. Boarded C20 door at lobby-entrance (formerly cross-entry
position). A good and typical example of a C15 house. A 2-bay open hall with
steeply-cambered arch-braced tie beam and octagonal crownpost (upper part
concealed). The half hipped ends are supported by queenposts and square-set
arch braced purlins which may be a slightly later insertion. Good arch
windbraced studding in the hall. Heavy unchamfered joists in the end cells
(the service rooms were united later). A good C16 lintelled open fireplace
was inserted in the cross-entry. In the lower bay of the hall are roll-
moulded first floor joists, perhaps inserted 50 years before the ovolo-moulded
joists of c.1600 in the upper bay.
