6/303 Nos 10 and 12

- II

House. Circa late C15, remodelled in phases during C16 and C17. Cob
rendered and partly rebuilt in course stone rubble and later patched in
brick. Corrugated asbestos roof cladding over thatch (some
original thatch survives), with gabled ends, north east gable coped and
with remains of small finial. Stone axial and gable end stacks with
later brick shafts. L-shaped on plan. Main front range of hall, through
passage and low left (S) end, and a cross-wing at right (N) end
consisting of 3 rooms. The whole building was originally open to the
roof and heated from open hearth fires. The insertion of stacks and
floors occured in phases but it appears that the hall's axial stack and
possibly the hall chamber were formed while the low (S) end remained
open to the roof with an open hearth fire. The low end's and possibly
the cross-wing's gable end stacks and floors were installed later during
the C16 or C17. The axial passage at the back of the hall was formed in
the C18. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window east front; right hand gable
has blind attic window and remains of small finial to coping. All C20
casements except for three on ground and first floor on left which are
C19 2-light casements with glazing bars. 2 partly glazed doors on left,
that to left of centre has chamfered stone jamb. Centre of front wall
rebuilt in brick in C20. At rear various small C19 and C20 casements,
C20 porch and brick rebuilding under eaves; projecting gable-ended wing
on left. Interior: virtually unaltered since C19. Low end room-has
axial partition, roughly cahmfered cross-beams and large gable end fire-
place with chamfered cambered lintel with cyma stops. Hall has chamfered
axial beam with straight cut stops and large fireplace with chamfered
lintel. Panelled partition to axial passage at rear of hall. Two front
rooms in cross-wing have unchamfered beams and west end room has
chamfered cross-beam with cyma stops and fireplace with chamfered lintel
and oven. Roof: 2 bays of hall have central cruck truss with tenoned
collar, arched braces, struts, cruck blades joined by yoke at apex for
square-set ridge-piece; large trenched purlins and curved wind-braces,
all smoke blackened. Truss between hall and through passage is cruck
with halved and lapped collar, and yoke for square-set ridgepiece which
is carried over low end; pilaster infill smoke-blackened on low side.
Two trusses over wing with collars halved and pegged to cruck blades
which are joined at apex by large yokes for square-set ridgepiece; large
trenched purlins and one curved wind-brace remains; all smoke-blackened;
