No 31 Knights Manor


House, mid C16 at rear of a mid-late C19, front range of clunch
which possibly replaced a parlour wing to the C16 house.
Timber-framed, part rendered with a steeply pitched, pantiled
roof, originally thatched. The ridge stack is original,
although the upper courses were rebuilt in C19. The end stack
was added in C17 and is of red brick, English-bond, with
offsets. Original plan of three bays, and two rooms, including
the two-bay hall, a cross-passage and single bay service end.
Two storeys. The framing is of substantial scantling and close
centres. The present fenestration and doorways are all C20.
The corner posts have cranked bracing to the middle rail. At
the rear is a timber-framed stair turret, probably
contemporary. Inside. The principal posts in the hall are
thickened at ceiling height to carry the main beams of the floor
frame, similar in construction to Anglesey House and Rose
Cottage, both in Swaffham Prior. The main beams are stop
chamfered. The arch of one of the doorways (now blocked) to the
original cross-passage survives and the partition wall between
the hall and service bay remains.
