Listing Text

(North west side)

17/40 No. 14 (Newlyn)
(formerly listed as
22.11.67 Newlyn Cottage)


House. Early C14 aisled hall with a crosswing to the west of two building
periods, c1550 and early C17. A small wing was added to the south east
c1650. Timber framed, plaster rendered and old tile roofs. Three ridge
stacks. One inserted in the aisled hall is early C17 and has red brick base
with moulded brick cornice and diagonally set grouped shafts. The other two
are similar and both mid-late C17. Similar red brick with moulded brick to
the cornice of the base and three rectangular shafts with the entablature
linked at the capping. Original plan of aisled hall with service and solar
bays in line. Aisle on the south side, now removed. Crosswing and wing
added to form the present house which now appears to be of conventional hall
and double-ended crosswing plan. Two storeys. C19 fenestration including
flush frame sashes in openiny boxing to the gable ends of the crosswing and
wing. Both of these wings retain original window openings with ovolo
mullions. Main doorway is to the aisled hall. The aisle extends along the
whole of the rear wall of the main range. North west crosswing. c.1550.
Two storeys with first floor jettied at north west end. Framing and later
red brick infill exposed. There is shallow stud bracing to the walls similar
to that of the crosswing at the Maltings, High Street, Haslingfield (q.v.).
Original window openings with diamond mullions. Interior: A chimney stack
and floor were inserted into the hall in late C16 or early C17. Stop
chamfered main beam and clunch and red brick inglenook. The service bay to
the north east has been rebuilt. There is structural evidence for the early
date of the aisled hall, including passing braces terminating at the collar
and splayed scarf joints in the arcade plates. The principal truss over the
hall is intact. Crown post roof with straight, upward, four-way bracing.
Chamfered crownpost with broach stops. Similar bracing between the arcade
posts and the plate. The roof is sooted generally. The closed truss between
the hall and service end has exposed framing with downward bracing to the
riddle rail. Some of the beams from the solar of the early C14 house were
reused in the west crosswing. This crosswing is in two building periods.
The north west wing is probably earlier. It is in two bays. There are
diamond mullions to the window openings. The south west crosswing was
probably rebuilt from an earlier crosswing, probably C15. The roof
incorporates rafters from a crown-post roof. There are late C16 fireplaces
in this wing with four centred chamfered arches. The ground floor ceiling
has inter-secting main beams. The south east crosswing is mid C17 and also
has an original red brick hearth with four centred chamfered arch. There is
late C17 flat section baluster staircase in the west crossing.
