(formerly listed as Old
12 January 1967
Former chantry house, 1527 (Pevsner) later a school house, now a
private dwelling. Timber framed with plastered panels and slate roof.
2 storeys, 3 window bays. Sandstone plinth, very close studding with
rails only as required for window sills and heads, in the facade, and
the east, jettied, gable without rails. Large curved tension braces
from the ground sill and equally large arch bracing up to the wall
plate. Replaced transome and mullion windows with leaded glazing.
Replaced entrance door. Added wing (south) of no interest.
Interior: Deeply bevelled beams and flat bevelled joists in the
mediaeval style. Four stone fireplaces with massive lintels carved
with chamfered Tudor arches. Some internal framing with middle rail.
Two sections of original Oak panelling with doors at first floor
level, one of these doors has original old hinges. The underside of
the roof was originally visible from the first floor rooms but a
lightweight ceiling has now been inserted. Graded 11* for the quality
of framing throughout.
