HATHERLEIGH BRIDGE STREET, (east side),
11/28 No. 29
House. Probably late medieval with C17 alterations and C18 or C19 addition.
Rendered cob and rubble walls. Gable ended asbestos slate roof. Brick stack at
right end and rendered stone axial stack with brick shaft.
Plan: room plan, left-hand room probably the hall and heated by axial stack which
backs onto wide passageway leading through house to rear courtyard. The existence
of one cruck truss suggests that the house may originally have had an open hall and
been floored in the C17 but this could not be proved without an inspection of the
roof-space which was not possible at the time of survey. Probably C18 or early C19
wing behind left-hand room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front of circa mid C20 3-light
casements. To right of centre is wide opening to passageway with double C20 plank
Interior: the passage is cobbled and paved. To the rear of the stack on the left-
hand side is a section of chamfered plank and muntin screen. Left-hand room has
chamfered and stopped axial beams. Fireplaces blocked. Right-hand room has roughly
chamfered beam and open fireplace with roughly chamfered wooden lintel. At this end
of the house the foot of a jointed cruck is visible and it is possible that more of
the original roof survives although a new roof has obviously been put on top.
