No 35
SP 5106 NE 6/194 12.1.54.
House. RCHM 198. Dated 1626. 2-storeyed roughcast rubble and timber-framing
with 3 large dormers in a stone slate roof. There is a dripmould at the
1st floor, an overhang between the dormers supported on 3 carved and enriched
grotesque brackets and a central modern red brick stack. The ground floor
is a late C18 alteration and has 2 3-light C18-19 sash windows and shutters,
the West one being a modern copy. The front doorway has a plain modern frame
with pilasters and a pediment all in wood. In the 1st floor are 2 original
4-light oriel windows with C18 wood casements, each supported by 3 carved
and enriched brackets. On these brackets of the West window are the initials
M L and A L with the date 1626 on the centre one; below those brackets on
the East are 3 wood shields, 2 having thereon a chevron between 3 roses and
the initials M L: A L and the date 1626. The 2 side dormers have C18 3-light
wood casements with sliding lights, the windows in the centre dormers being
blocked and roughcast. The dormers each have moulded bargeboards which
appear original. On the North East is a moulded stone stack with a modern
red brick shaft. At the back on the North is a staircase projection, 2 gables
and an original 2-light stone moulded and mullioned window in the 1st floor,
this elevation has recently been encased with a modern brown tile-hanging
thus disguising its original ancient state. To the North and on the East
side at the back is a 2-storeyed timber-framed rough ast wing extended C1700
and having 2 eaves - level gables. This is included in the grading. Interior:
RCHM p 180 b. Includes original panelling and fireplace; some blocked
original windows in the South wall and 2 early C18 fireplaces.
