SS 53 SE
7/123 Nos 1-3 The Causeway and
Ring O' Bells Inn


Row of 3 cottages and public house. Possibly late C15, remodelled in C17 and with
later alterations. Whitewashed rendered rubble and cob. Slate roof with gable end
to left and. 4 tall brick stacks to rear, one of the stacks rebuilt in C20. 3
single cell cottages and public house adjoining to right. 2-storeys, 9-window
range. Nos 1-3 have 3 C19 windows from left a 2-light casement and 2 horizontal
sliding sash windows flanking 2 blind window openings. Three half-glazed doors
with 2-light casements 6-panes per light flanking doors to Nos 1 and 2 and 2-light
casement 3-panes per light to left of No. 3. C20 fenestration to Ring 0' Bells.
Stop chamfered beams to No. 1 and 3. Interesting roof structure with continuous
roof structure of 9 bays over Nos 1-3 and part of Ring of Bells comprising 8
trusses with apparently straight principals with the trusses over Nos 1-3 retaining
cranked collars tenoned into the soffit mortices to of each principal, with
mortice holes in the 3 trusses to the Ring 0' Bells. Each of the 9 bays retains 2
tiers of threaded purlins with sets of identical curved windbraces to each of the
tiers. Lath and plaster partition beyond the eight truss then 2 replacement
trusses with a further 3 trusses, comprising raised cruck trusses with 1 retaining
its cranked collar, towards the right end of the Ring 0' Bells. No sign of smoke-
blackening. The roof structure suggests that originally the row originally formed
2 adjoining late medieval houses, with the division towards the left end of the
Ring 0' Bells, but subsequent alterations have obscured the individual plans.
