- approx. 20 yards south-
west of Hood Lane
Former farmhouse. Probably C15. Timber framed and of cruck construction,
brick infill panels and some brick rebuilding; plain tile roof with crested
ridge tiles, brick ridge stack. Formerly a 3-cell hall house aligned
north-west/south-east facing south-west with central hall incorporating
a cross-passage defined by a spere truss; the ground floor of the upper
end bay is divided longitudinally by a timber framed partition of square
panels containing a doorway between the 2 rooms; the lower end bay has
been demolished. South-west front. One storey and gable-lit attic;
3 tiers of square panels to eaves; scattered fenestration. Boarded door.
to the right. North-east front. 3 tiers of horizontal rectangular
panels; this wall has possibly been rebuilt. Door to the left, scattered
fenestration. Interior. 2 cruck trusses with Alcock type apex type
H contain the hall bay. They carry a ridge piece and a pair of trenched
purlins. Smoke blackening on the face of truss B suggests that the
hall was open to the roof and heated by an open hearth. Spere truss
of unusual construction containing a pair of quasi-aisle posts which support
the purlins directly. The first floor of the upper end bay appears
to be a later insertion. P.R. Sheppard 'Cruck-Trussed Houses in the
