5/16 Fair House
House. C17. Timber-framed structure which is concealed by
render. Repairs and additions in brick. Slate roof. 3-unit,
lobby-entrance plan with total of 5 bays and 2 storeys.
Original door to right of bay 3. Later door to bay 4. Bay 1
projects as a gabled crosswing with a door in the angle. All
the windows are replacement casements many having been
altered. Continuous outshut added to rear. Chimney stack
on rear slope. The inside contains a remarkably complete
pair of back-to-back inglenook fireplaces including smoke
hoods. The bressumer beams and other ceiling beams are
ovolo-moulded with stepped stops. Various timber-framed
components are clearly visible including some principal
posts, king-post roof trusses and crosswalls one of which
has curved diagonal braces at tie beam level. The building
is an important survival in many respects, not least as an
example of timber-framing in an area where little remains.
