No 61 (Church


House. Mid C16 and late C17 or early C18. Altered particularly on the front
in C19-C20. Timber framed, part roughcast rendered and part white brick
casing. Plain tiles to original steeply pitched roof. Internal stack
inserted to rear pitch. Two bay C16 range extended in late C16 by two bays at
the west end. Two storeys. First floor originally jettied, (the soffit of
the bressummer is visible above the doorway) with the joists cogged to the
bressummer. Two first floor, flush frame sixteen pane hung sashes, C19. Two
ground floor windows on either side of doorway, deeply recessed in the
original ground floor wall. On the west late C17-early C18 range. Timber
framed, roughcast rendered west gable end and white brick casing to front
wall. Steeply pitched plain tiled roof and gault brick ridge stack, square on
plan. One storey and attic. Two gable dormers. Two C19 windows. There are
later lean-tos and outshuts at the rear. Interior: Wall framing of
substantial scantling visible at first floor and wind braced side purlin roof.
The two bays to the east were a single room into which the stack was inserted
in C17-C18. The ceiling has intersecting main beams one of which is partly
obscured by the inserted inglenooks. The main beams are stop chamfered. The
joists are of substantial scantling and are laid flat. They are unmoulded.
It would seem that the two bays at the east end formed part of a larger
building. Possibly they were a solar wing to a hall house, the hall of which
was rebuilt at the west end in late C17 or early C18. However its location
near the church may indicate a special purpose building.
