- II

House. Probably C15 origin with later additions and alterations. Timber framed
and plastered. Red plain tiled roofs, hipped to single storey left extension,
gabled dormer to left range, gabled and jettied crosswing to right. Red brick
chimney stack to left and 3 attached diagonal shafts to left of gabled
crosswing. One storey and attics on 2 storey. 2 window range to first floor.
3 range to ground floor of C20 leaded casements. C20 panelled door to left of
crosswing. Of complex plan, with sparse dating evidence. The main ground floor
fireplace has mantel beam dated 1577. The jambs to the jettied crosswing
fireplace appear to be early C16, the frame appears earlier. The main range
roof originally had a crown post on a slightly cambered tie beam with arched
bracings, probably mid C15. The west end partition appears to relate to an
earlier aisled hall. The west hipped roof structure seems to have been a
service wing. There are two C16 panelled doors, also near the main chimney
stack a void large enough to act as a hiding hole for a man. RCHM 14.
