2/135 Digger's Rest Public House
Public house. Late C15 or early C16, with later alterations and extensions.
Plastered cob on stone footings; gabled-end thatched roof. Formerly a 3-room
through-passage plan house, with the higher end to the right of the passage. The
hall was originally open to the roof and is heavily smoke blackened; the service
end was probably of 2 storeys from the beginning. The inner room was floored
before the hall into which it is jettied. Hall heated by external rear lateral
stack; service end stack now axial due to the enlargement of the building to form a
public bar; right-hand end stack heats inner room; brick shafts to all stacks. 2
Front: 3 window range; 2- and 3-light casements to ground floor windows, and a
small C20 bay window to the inner room. C20 extensions to left-hand end and rear.
Two 2-light half dormers to rear.
Interior: plank and muntin screen between hall and inner room, the planks partially
removed, the muntins chamfered with run out stops at about 2 ft above ground level
to hall side. One chamfered door jamb survives to this screen. Inner room joists
jettied about 12" into hall. Hall fireplace concealed.
Roof: 3 jointed crucks, purlins trenched with large diagonal ridge-piece; the
crucks come down to ground level. Hall sooted; truss between hall and inner room
not visible from inspection hatch.
