TL 45 NE TEVERSHAM THURLBORNS CLOSE
(South Side)

6/198 No. 1

II


House, early C17 but incorporating an earlier building on the
site, possibly an open-hall. Later additions were made to the
South side wall. Timber-framed, rendered with a steeply pitched
roof of tiles and an early C17 ridge stack with grouped shafts
set diagonally. Plan of single range of parlour, hall and
service bay. Two storeys with jettied gable end. The
fenestration is all later and includes two windows and a small
closet opening on the side of Thurlborns Close. The present
doorway is to the former service bay, but there is a doorway to
a lobby entry on the South side and an entry to the jettied
gable end. Inside. Some of the framing of the original,
earlier house is visible including the main posts and tie beams
at the right hand gable end as well as the original wall
plates. Insufficient framing is visible to date this earlier
building. In the early C17 the jettied bay was built and the
roof of the hall and service bay was raised, the stack was
probably inserted and the hall floored. The present roof was
constructed then. It is in five bays, including the narrower
chimney bay, and of staggered, butt-purlin construction with
collars between the principal rafters. Between the parlour and
the hall beside the chimney, the joists of the floor frame in
the parlour project into the lobby entry. This suggests that
there was originally an internal jetty.
