2/50 WATER HALL
Late C16 cottage, extended in C17 and C20. Timber-framed, walls plastered and
weatherboarded, roof tiled. The original cottage is of 2 bays aligned E-W,
with a contemporary chimney stack at the W end. One bay was added to the W
of the stack in the early C17. Several extensions were added to the S and E
in the C20, with 2 extra chimneys. Single storey with attics. The N
elevation is plastered with a weatherboarded dado, and has 4 C20 casement windows
and another in a gabled dormer. A C20 rustic porch projects at the W end,
a small C20 brick extension and chimney at the E end. The roof is half-
hipped both ends. Jowled storey posts, cambered tiebeams. The wall framing
is partly- exposed internally, with curved tension braces trenched to the
inside of the studs in the C16 part, heavy primary straight bracing in the C17
bay. Stop-chamfered ceiling beam in middle bay. The roof is of collar-
rafter construction, with ties which indicate that it has been thatched.
A catslide dormer in the S pitch of the middle bay is probably original.
