10/1 Bank Walk House


House. Late C15 or early C16 timber-framed house enclosed in stone,
early C17 with mid Cl8 and late C20 alterations. Large dressed stone
irregularly coursed, stone slate roof. 2-storey front, single-storey
rear. 3-room plan. Weathered plinth, 2-light flat-faced mullioned
window of lst cell cuts into plinth; 1st floor blind. Doorway with
tie-stone jambs has large original door lintel above with broad chamfer.
To right of door is blocked window. 2nd cell has 3-light flat-faced
mullioned window with slightly recessed mullions with 3-light double-
chamfered mullioned window above to 1st floor. 3rd cell has 2-light
chamfered mullioned window, 1st floor blind. Central stack to ridge
and one to right gable. Rear has 2-light window to left of 2 storey
gabled porch with cyma-moulded band and 2-light flat-faced mullioned
window to porch chamber. Low outshut to right-hand end for C19 added
cellar partly sunk in ground.

Interior: 2 bays retain posts on padstones with straightbraces to
arcade-plate and tie-beam. 3rd cell has aisle open to roof. Post
built into front wall indicates that it was fully timber-framed with
a rear aisle originally. The only visible truss is a reused king-post
truss with a new tie-beam but with convex curved principal rafters.
The truss appears to have been moved to one side of its original position
indicated by the halving for it on the arcade-plate. The roof, although
reset at a shallower pitch, contains some of the original rafters which
are -halved to receive collars. There is no ridge-tree. Though the
remains of the timber-frame are fragmentary it is nevertheless an
interesting and rare survival in this region.
