chimneyshafts; peg-tile roof.
Plan: L-plan building. The main block long front faces south west onto The
Square. It has a double-depth plan with front and back room either side of
the central entrance hall and staircase. In fact the right rooms have been
converted to the shop. A stack projects from the left end wall. A rear
kitchen block projects to rear of the right end; it has an outer lateral
stack. In fact the kitchen fireplace is probably C16, the only feature

flanking pilasters. The first floor windows and hipped dormers contain C19
and C20 replacement casements with glazing bars. In the centre stone steps up
to the main front doorway which contains a probably C19 part-glazed panelled
door. The flat hood above is early C18. Its moulded edges are carried round
from a moulded timber frieze at first floor level. (A similar hood and part
of the frieze show in the rear wall). The timber eaves cornice includes a
modillion frieze. The roof is hipped both ends.
Interior: As far as can be seen the original framed structure is well-
preserved. Exposed beams are plain chamfered. Most of the fireplaces are
blocked but the C16 fireplace is exposed in the rear wing; its oak lintel
moulded with a broad hollow chamfer containing a roll. Good early C18 joinery
includes the open well stair; square newel posts with ball finials, closed
string and turned balusters with blocks. A pine round-headed arch (fluted
pilasters and moulded entablature with dentil frieze) between the 2 ground
floor rooms of the house is early C18 but may not be in situ. Some early C18
2-panel doors off the stair landings. Original roof of tie-beam trusses with
staggered butt purlins.
Corneys is a handsome merchant-status town house.
