the left return the original widely spaced studding, girt, tiebeam and 2 rafters
are exposed, with closer studding and a collar above. Edge-halved and bridled
scarfs in original and upper wallplates. In no. 75, diamond mortices and

floor comprising chamfered axial beam and chamfered joists of horizontal section
jointed to it with unrefined soffit tenons, all with step stops, supported on
pegged clamps. Wood-burning hearth with jambs of 0.23 metre brickwork,
replacing earlier timber-framed chimney. The floor has been inserted
exceptionally early, and the raising of the walls is also exceptionally early,
with secondary jowled posts and C16 jointing. The middle tiebeam of this raised
construction is missing. In no. 77, similar hearth, and inserted floor
comprising plain joists of horizontal section arranged longitudinally on pegged
clamps. One panel in the front wall retains an early wall painting, comprising
a simple zigzag border top and bottom, with dots in the triangles, of black
paint on white; some traces of paint perceptible on the timber. The inserted
window has one moulded mullion and 2 diamond saddle bars, c.1560, interrupting
the original studs. The rear wing has a chamfered beam with lamb's tongue
stops. The roof of the front range retains some C16 lapped boarding to which
tiles were formerly attached. RCHM 6 states that the frame had been exposed
recently, i.e. c.1922.
