- II

House. C16 and C17 with late C18 rebuild,and restoration and extension
1978-9. Timber framed, the outer walls brick and cobble; thatched roof.
2-unit lobby-entry plan with front and rear aisles, of 1 storey with attic.
Board door right; 2 side-sliding sashes, of 12 and 24 panes to centre and
far left, beneath the eaves of a steeply-pitched roof. A short corner stack
and hipped roof to left; gable end stack to right. 2-bay single-storey 1978
addition with pantile roof and 2 small-pane windows to right. Rear: C20
brick walling; central board door, small 2-pane window left; 10-pane side-
sliding sash to right; projecting 1979 wing to left. Left return: attic
storey lit by 12-pane side-sliding sash beneath eaves which are higher than
side walls. A pair of timber principal posts with long braces are visible,
that to left covered by cement. Interior: substantial remains of a timber-
framed house survive, including 3 pairs of principal posts with braces and
tie beams which stand inside the line of the outer walls, providing extra
space under the steep roof by creating aisles to front and rear. Entry is
onto the side of a large stack with timber bressumer which carries the
joists of the main living room. The room far left has a corner fireplace.
Upper floor: the tie-beams are reused timbers as are the principal posts;
the rafters are of large scantling. This is a rare example of a double-
aisled small house and was recorded in detail by the North Yorkshire and
Cleveland Vernacular Buildings Study Group before the 1978-9 restoration,
Report Number 294, 1977.
