SX 86 NE,

No 4


House. Circa late C15 or early C16, remodelled later in C16 and again in C17.
Plastered stone rubble and cob. Thatched roof with hipped and gabled ends.
Rendered axial stack. Plan and Development: Probably the high end (hall and
inner room) of a late medieval house, the lower left end (No. 6) is now a separate house and has been extensively rebuilt. At least the hall and inner room
were open to the roof originally and heated from an open hearth fire. A chamber
was built over the inner room probably later in C16, while the hall remained
open to the roof. In C17 a floor was inserted into the hall and an axial stack
built at its lower end, but the inner room probably remained unheated.
EXTERIOR: 1 storey and attic. Asymmetrical front. Two C20 casements on ground
floor, the left hand with timber lintel, and very small opening to right of
off-centre C20 glazed door. Circa early C20 2-light casement above, under eaves,
and small lunette dormer with radiating glazing bars in thatch to right. Rear
elevation is blind. INTERIOR: The former hall (left room) has chamfered
cross beams with jewel-and-bar stops. Hall fireplace blocked. Rough, uncham-
fered beams in inner right-hand room. Original 3-bay roof structure survives
with 2 side-pegged jointed cruck trusses with threaded purlins, diagonally-set
trenched ridge piece, but no collars; complete with common rafters and
smoke-blackened from end-to-end, including about half the thatch and battens.
Between the two trusses a wattle-and-daub partition has been inserted,
smoke-blackened on the hall side only.
