Nos 6 and 8 (Peacehouse)
(Formerly listed as
ST 8751 SW 4/5 No 6 only)
C15 and C16 altered.
No 6: A 2 storey block on light rubble stone plinth with a spur buttress,
upper part timber framed with brick infilling. Pantile roof. 2 twin casements
on 1st floor, one on ground floor to right. Return front to left with ancient
3 plank double thickness nail studded door in later plain lattice wood porch;
one casement window to right. No 6 was originally a small 3 bay house gable
end to road, thatched. Below, on ground floor, the heavily moulded Tudor
cross beams are retained on the ground floor. This was extended to form present
house and join the later No 8.
No 8: Now appears as a later wing to left with an 'L' plan. Built of rubble,
gable end to road with alternate thick and thin coursing. Pantile roof.
2 ranges of C19 casements on left hand wing, one on ground floor of right

of this house are indicated by an internal wall said to be 8 ft thick and
by the now roofed over hip visible from the roof space of No 6.
