(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.36 AND 38)
House. C15, with later alterations and extensions at rear.
Timber-framed; roughcast exterior with applied mock timbering;
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, cellar and attics: contains the 2 bays of
an open hall. 2 window range: 2-light casement windows with a
single bar to the 1st storey and small-paned sashes in flush
cased frames on the ground storey. A 6-panel door in a wood
doorcase with moulded architrave and pediment.
INTERIOR: a small cellar below the rear extensions has one
wall of large kidney flints, the rest brick lined. Good
studding partly exposed inside. A fine crown-post roof,
lightly smoke blackened, the crown post with a short octagonal
shaft and moulded cap and base, braced 4 ways at the head. A
second layer of rafters has been laid over the original roof.
Slightly smoke-blackened plaster between the studs of the
north wall at attic level. The crown-post stands on a heavily
cambered tie beam, ogee moulded, with chamfered solid arched
braces meeting at the centre with a short blocking piece. The
end wall on the north has only the tie-beam and one surviving
long arched brace; no evidence of original studding below the
tie-beam, which suggests that the house was butted up against
an earlier building.
The chimney-stack was inserted at the upper end of the hall
and serves both Nos 36 and 38 (qv), the latter formerly the
cross-wing associated with the open hall, but now separately
occupied. The open fireplace has a damaged timber lintel and
the brickwork has the remains of original mortar. The inserted
ceiling has heavy chamfered cross-beams and plain unchamfered
joists set flat.
