(West Side)

15/28 Outbuilding to
No 128 (Parson-
1.12.51 age Farmhouse)
(formerly listed as
GV outbuildings to
Parsonage Farmhouse)
Outbuilding, early C16, with C19 alterations and internal
staircase. C20 roof replaces original crown-post roof. Timber
frame with later brick nogging of four bays, jettied to north.
Ground floor rubble clunch wall to south possibly an earlier
boundary wall. East gable wall of clunch contemporary, west
gable wall of brick replaces original timber frame. Roof with
re-used plain tiles. Two storeys. North elevation has four,
first floor three-light diamond mullion windows with others
sealed or altered originally forming an almost complete row of
windows without shutters (similar windows to south). One ground
floor three-light diamond mullion window survives with modern
doorways to garage and workshops. Three original ground floor
rooms have partitions and axial floor beams with evidence for
their original openings. Jetty bressumer moulded with some
brackets in situ; slightly splayed edge-halved scarf-joints to
wall plates. Three cambered tie beams with mortices for crown
posts. The well-lit upper hall, possibly approached by an
external gable stair, may have been a weaving gallery, and the
ground floor rooms had some associated use. The ranges to the
east, of clunch, have partly been rebuilt and re-roofed
recently. Some C14 moulded clunch in east gable wall may be
surviving fragments from the buildings of St John's Priory.
