- II

House. C16 origin, much altered in late C17, with C19 and C20 additions.
Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched. 2-bay hall facing SE with stack in
right bay against front wall, storeyed parlour/solar bay to left, originally
unstoreyed service bay to right. One-bay extension to right, C18/C19. Rear
extension, 1973, forming a T-plan. One storey with attics. 4 C20 casements, 2
more in swept dormers, C20 door, grouped diagonal shafts. The large
wood-burning hearth facing to left is of late C16 construction with a blocked
aperture for a former bread oven in the front. The partition wall facing it is
of similar date, with one large curved brace trenched into heavy studs. The
original lodged floor in the left bay consists of longitudinal plain joists of
horizontal section with a trimmed stair trap, blocked. Other features of the
construction are substantially later in type - unjowled posts, simple corner
jointing, straight rising braces from the corner posts, suggesting major
alterations in the late C17. The inserted floor to left of the stack consists
of a chamfered transverse beam, longitudinal joists (plastered to the soffits)
supported on pegged clamps, rebated floorboards. The inserted floor to right of
the stack consists of a chamfered axial beam and plain joists of vertical
section, fitted in wider mortices. All internal tiebeams present, one severed.
Unsooted coupled rafter roof. This is not the house described as Moneyfields in
RCHM 36 - see Tinkers Cross, Gosfield Road, item 1/146.
