House. W crosswing c.1500, hall range and rear wing late C16 or early
C17, renovated 1724 (date panel on plaster front). Timber frame on brick
sill, panelled fan pargetting and steep old red tile roof. A 2-storeys
T-plan, 3-cells, internal chimney, lobby entry plan house facing N with
entrance moved to E, and 1 1/2 storeys rear wing with half-hipped roof. C18
gable chimney inserted in rear wing. 6 steps to C20 door on W end with
flat hood on posts. N front has jettied gabled crosswing on W with
curved braces to jetty. Small window beside chimney at junction with
wing at site of former door with diamond date plaque over. 2 windows to
left with a door between. 2- and 3-light flush casement windows. 6-panel
door with flat hood on shaped brackets. 2 bays of crosswing formerly
entered separately by twin doors from cross-passage on site of later
chimney. Mortices for partition in beam and heavy flat joists in wing.
Chimney originally heated hall only. Later fireplace for service end in
W wing. Rear wing of unusual construction. Curved tension braces in S
gable. 2 bays, with bar-stop to chamfer of cross-beam with ogee jowls on
posts. Head of each post linked to floor beam by heavy inclined strut to
avoid need for a tie-beam. In front range floor over hall carried on a
crossbeam, but an axial beam in E bay, suggesting possible stages in
flooring. Notable lack of heated rooms originally in a house of this
size. C19 main staircase in E part of main range may have replaced an
earlier one there. Andrew Judd recorded as owner in 1544. (RCHM
Typescript: Jackson (1983)16).
