12/8 No.18 (Old Shardelowes)
House, C15 and late C16 or early C17. C17 kitchen wing added at
rear. Timber framed plaster rendered with steeply pitched
plain tiled roofs with ridge stack of C17 narrow gault brick at
junction of two ranges. Plan of hall and crosswing. Hall range
of two storeys with two small pane casements at first floor.
Doorway in original location leading to cross-passage.
Crosswing has two C20 casements. Interior: The hall was
originally open to the roof, but a floor and stack were inserted
probably c1600. However a pair of sooted rafters survive from
the earlier roof, close to the stack. The present hall roof is
of substantial side purlin construction. The mortices for a
wall between the hall and service room forming part of the
cross-passage are visible in one beam. The joists to the
service bay are unmoulded and laid flat. The inglenook hearth
in the hall has probably been restored. The parlour crosswing
was added or rebuilt late in C16. The roof has straight wind
bracing to the clasped side purlins and a closed truss between
the two bays. The kitchen wing probably added in C17 has a red
brick inglenook hearth with spice and salt cupboard openings.
