6/58 Town Farmhouse including
07/02/52 wall enclosing yard


House, former farmhouse. Late C14, C15 and later. Timber framed and plastered
with pegtile roofs. Of complex plan form but of basic 'H' plan with long
service wing behind western wing returning at right angles to the west. All of
2 storeys with gabled roofs, but with a hipped end to west end of the rear
range. The front shows 3 jettied gables to the street with a short length of
the hall eaves exposed at alower level, between 2 of the jettied gables. The
eastern crosswing has 2 exposed jetty brackets framing a canted bay window of
double hung sash windows with small panes. The adjoining jettied gable has a
canted bay window of leaded lights. The entrance door, in the exposed remnant
of the hall front, has a moulded architrave and, internally, an old wooden lock.
The west crosswing has 4 large jetty brackets. Windows are all of rectangular
leaded lights, some C20 and some old iron casements. A small red brick stack
rises through the front roof slope of the hall and later stacks against the east
and west crosswing flanks. A high red brick early C19 wall extends from the
north west corner of the building, along the frontage enclosing a yard.
Internally the high quality framing is exposed, showing a parlour/solar cross-
wing at the east end and 2 bay hall all of one build of the probable late C14.
This has unjowled posts, crown post roofs over hall and crosswing with moulded
capitals and bases and framing of large hall window. The parlour door head is
still in-situ. The top plate of the hall is moulded as is the underside of
central tie beam. A large inserted inglenook fireplace retains a roughly
moulded mantle beam and pot crane. The 'extra' jettied gable, is a superimposed
structure over the high end bay of the former hall. The service crosswing at
the west end has remnants of the service doors, poorer quality timber, but a
cross-quadrant crown post. This was of 2 bays with a hipped rear roof with
gablet all of likely early C15 date. This is now linked to a rear, formerly
detached, kitchen block with a simpler crown post roof. RCHM 15.
