Part of house, now house. C15/early C16, altered in early C19. Timber framed,
plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 2-bay crosswing of hall house
extending to the left (items 9/109 and 9/110, q.v.), with external stack to
right. C15 2-bay wing to rear, and C20 single-storey lean-to beyond. 2
storeys, both exceptionally high in the front block only. Ground floor, one
sash of 6+1 lights, with C20 external louvred shutters. First floor, one C20
sash in early C19 style, with similar shutters. Introduced 6-panel pine door in
early C19 doorcase with reeded jambs, paterae and moulded flat canopy. Exposed
moulded tiebeam. A passage through at the left is on the line of the original
cross-entry, and has in the right wall 2 blocked wide doorways with 4-centred
heads. Underbuilt jetty. The post at the right has one moulded bracket, and an
attached shaft. Curved braces trenched outside heavy close studding. The
middle wallposts in each side have internal attached shafts, moulded bases and
capitals. The binding beam is moulded, with moulded arched braces to it. The
wallplates are moulded with converging stops. Moulded cambered tiebeam with 2
moulded arched braces. Roof inaccessible at time of survey, but the owner's
photographs show that it is original and complete, with soulaces to every rafter
couple, and a central crownpost (probably octagonal) with moulded base, moulded
and crenellated capital and 4-way rising braces. The stack is original or
early; the fabric of brick and tiles in random bond is visible from no. 12 (item
9/107, q.v.). C16 stone fireplace with moulded jambs, attached round shafts,
moulded depressed arch with foliate carving in the spandrels, blocked for a C20

16-- in black-letter script, others indecipherable. In the rear wall is a
blocked first-floor doorway with a 4-centred head. The rear wing has rebated
and chamfered wallplates with step stops, a cambered central tiebeam, and a
crownpost roof with all axial braces 0.08 metre thick. Introduced early C17 oak
panelling. RCHM 70.
