(North west side)

16/43 No. 36


House. Mid-late C16. Renovated and extended at rear. Timber frame roughcast
rendered and tiled. Rendered ridge stack of two flues. Single range four
bay plan including an entry and chimney bay. Two storeys and attic. Three
modern leaded light windows to each storey. Doorway opposite the stack.
Inside: Some framing is exposed. Ground floor room at east end has original
floor frame of joists laid flat. An original parlour wall between this and a
cross passage at the rear of the stack, has now been removed. The hall has
an original ceiling with intersecting main beams, stop chamfered and in the
north wall evidence for a four-light shuttered window opening with diamond
mullions. There was a doorway between the hall and arch at the west end.
The original lintel is still in situ. In the hall the inglenook fireplace is
off-centre and the chamfer of this main beam has been obscured by the
chimney. This chimney stack may be an enlargement of an original stack or an
insertion into a building which was formerly unheated. Such a building may
have had a special purpose. At first floor there are arch braces surviving
in one tie beam and evidence in others. The ceilings at first floor have
been inserted, although probably in C17 and the roof is possibly of a similar
period and therefore a rebuild. It is of clasped side purlin type.

R.C.H.M. West Cambs. Mon. (35).
