(North side)

19/49 No. 2 (Baron's

House. c.1560 by George Wells. Much altered externally and added to in late
C19. Timber frame, rendered, low pitch late C19 roof of slate. The side
stack of reused red brick is C19 and possibly on the site of the original.
Two storeys. Mid-late C20 fenestration and doorway. In late C19 lean-tos
were added to the side walls, and the slate roof carried down over them.
Inside: The two bays of the c.1560 house remain intact. Peg-holes indicate
that the original house was of two bays. The centre truss has an arched
brace tie beam and all the main posts have heavy, jowled heads. At ground
floor there is an original partition wall between the two rooms. The hall
has a fine c.1560 ceiling of double ogee moulded joists, closely set and laid
flat with leaf moulded stops. Similar, larger mouldings to main beam and
cornice. The house is included for the timber framing of the original
structure and the ceiling of the hall.
