9/18 Trees Cottage
23/01/86 II*

House. Mid C14, late C16, C17; later alterations, particularly mid-
late C20. Coursed flint with brick dressings; some timber framing
with brick infill; C20 walling of painted brick. Plain tile roof.
Two bays of C14 base-cruck/aisled hall survive, originally extending
further in each direction, the left end replaced by late C16/early
C17 service bay; floors and fireplaces inserted late C16/early C17.
Now one storey and attic, 3 bays; windows mostly C20 small-pane
wooden casements. Three 3-light windows with C20 board door between
those on right. 2 pent-roofed dormers, of 3 and 2 lights, to left
bays. Roof half-hipped with large stack forward of ridge in line
with door; end stack on left. C20 single-storey bay on left and
lean-to on right not of special interest. Rear: central bay has
glazed door with probably C18 window with stanchions and iron
casement with saddle bars and decorative catch on its left; section
of timber framing above, heightened C20 and having 4-light window and
pent-roof. A window to each outer bay, and 2-light dormer on left.
Right return: ends of purlin exposed. Interior: C14 timbers are
of large scantling and most are chamfered. 3 trusses survive, the
outer trusses having jowelled wall posts with long arch braces to
steeply-cambered tie-beam, the central truss having base cruck arch-
braced to similar tie-beam and decorative central boss. Tie-beams
support short crown posts with moulded bases and arch braces to
collars and collar purlin. Collared rafters; curved wind-braces.
Roof timbers are sooted. Chamfered arcade plates and secondary
plates/cornices. The left-hand truss has infill framing including
posts, arch-braces, ties from arcade posts to wall posts, and head
of central chamfered, pointed-arched, doorway (part removed).
Central bay has probably late C16 floor, the spine-beam and joists
chamfered with stepped cyma stops; and large stone fireplace with
timber bressumer, chamfered jambs, and brick lining with niche and
former bread oven. Right bay has inserted floor with similar spine-
beam and probably early C17 fireplace with chamfered stone quoins and
brick 4-centred arch. Left bay has late C16/early C17 joists, the
chamfers indicating position of former partition walls between
central longitudinal corridor and flanking service rooms.


SU 72 NW
9/18 Trees Cottage
House. C14, C16, C17 and C20. Walls of coursed flint with brick dressings, small
area of bricknogged framing, and C20 walling of painted brickwork. Tile roof of
uneven form, with ½ hips, and sloping roofs to the dormers. 1 storey and attic,
irregular fenestration. Casements. Plain doorways. The interior shows the
massive framing of a 2-bay medieval hall, with arch bracing, king posts, a finely-
carved boss to the central tie-beam, and a Gothic frame (part missing) to a doorway.
A fireplace and upper floor were inserted in the C16, with massive floor joists, a
wide fireplace with a chamfered bressummer on stone jambs, backing onto a 4-centred
brick Tudor arched fireplace of lesser span. Further timber framing of the C17
indicate extension of that period.
