8/142 No. 2 River Hill


House. Early C16, altered in C17. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays facing SW, at right angles to No. 3 River Hill
Cottages and connecting with it at the left end. Internal stack at rear of left
bay. Internal stack at right end of middle bay against rear wall. One storey
with attics. 3 C20 casements and 3 more in gabled dormers. C20 door at front
of small lean-to porch. Full-length jetty, underbuilt but visible externally.
NE elevation (facing Owl's Hill), 2 C20 casements, C20 door at side of lean-to
porch. The left bay has an exceptionally wide wood-burning hearth with cambered
mantel beam, effectively the same length as the bay, probably part of a timber
framed chimney of which nothing else is exposed, reduced for a modern stove. The
other stack has a chamfered straight mantel beam with plain stops, for a
wood-burning hearth, reduced for a C20 grate. Chamfered axial beam with lamb's
tongue stops, raised at the hearth end on a short post with similar detail, with
Cl9/C20 joists. Jowled posts, close studding, shutter groove for unglazed
window below jetty. The SW wall has subsided unevenly and has been raised
approx. 0.50 metre with an additional wallplate, and the roof rebuilt. This
subsidence probably accounts for the raising of the first floor also. RCHM 17.
