II *

House. Late medieval, re-cast and cased in brick in late C18. Timber
frame, red brick in English garden wall bond to front and side elevations,
coursed oolitic limestone rubble to rear wall, pantiled roof. Now
2 storeys, 5 bays, 1:1:3, with rear outshut, under catslide roof,
representing former aisle. Late C18 rear wing. Lobby-entry plan. C20
glazed door flanked to right and to left by 20-pane sashes: 16-pane sash to
bay 4, 20-pane sash to bay 5. All boxed under flat gauged brick arches.
First floor: four 20-pane sashes. Wall plate visible at eaves level from
bay 2 to bay 5: simple scarf joint at bay 4. Above it can be seen the ends
of common rafters trenched into the plate. Interior: extensive timber-
framing apparently survives - all of it now cased or papered - except in the
front wall, completely rebuilt in brick in C18. Heavy chamfered primary
joists to principal rooms. A single rear wall post, not jowled, is visible
at first-floor level, bay 5. The common rafter roof (inaccessible at time
of resurvey) apparently survives intact. The side walls of the late C18
rear wing, in an ingenious arrangement, are carried over the rear aisle on
round-headed arches on brick piers. The site of the house is surrounded by
a large and well preserved moat. This house is an exceedingly rare and
well-preserved example of its type in this area.
