(formerly listed as No.2 (former blacksmith's))
House. C14 or C15, partly remodelled late C17 with considerable late C20
alterations. Timber-framed of cruck construction with rendered and painted
brick infill on rendered rubblestone plinth; oak shingle hanging to first
floor and asbestos slate roof. Original plan an open-hall house of at least
three cruck-framed bays, floored over in late C17, eaves raised and considerably
altered mid-to late C20. Two storeys. Framing: partly visible to ground
floor: irregular square and rectangular panels with long straight tension
braces; cruck truss partly visible to right gable end. Three late C20
casements to first floor, centre and right with gables breaking eaves and one
to centre on ground floor to right of C19 boarded door. One early C19 leaded
casement survives to rear. Former roof line visible to left gable end, which
has late C20 red brick top to integral rubblestone end stack, the width of
which is indicated by stone to front wall.
INTERIOR: Two true cruck trusses
exposed (that to right gable end not visible internally), right with cambered
collar and left with peg-holes for former arch bracing. Ground-floor rooms
have chamfered ceiling beams with broach stops. Centre cruck truss cut through
by oak winder staircase to front. Oak floor boards to first floor. Apexes
of cruck trusses said to survive in roof space but not inspected at time of
resurvey (September 1986). Alcock (1981), p. 144.
