HIGH STREET (North side)



Incorrectly shown on OS map as Bronaul.
House. Dated 1771, incorporating probably C15 core. Red brick on
dressed yellow/grey Grinshill sandstone plinth and incorporating timber
framed core of cruck construction; plain tile roof. One storey and
gable-lit attic and 2 storeys and gable-lit attic. Chamfered plinth
and dentil brick eaves cornice; integral brick end stack to right and
internal brick end stack to left. 3 bays; segmental-headed wooden
cross windows; central first-floor Venetian-type window with Gothick
tracery and painted chamfered datestone above inscribed: D
2 stone steps up to central C20 half-glazed door with W : E
3-part rectangular overlight and moulded architrave. 1771
Lower kitchen wing to right with segmental-headed 2-Light wooden casement
to front. Very tall stone plinth at rear. Interior: large probably
C15 former hall full cruck truss with arch-braced collar, continuous
chamfer, central quasi boss and yoke; probably mid-C16 chamfered cross-
beamed ceiling frame in kitchen block and late C16 inserted stack with
large open fireplace. Right-hand ground-floor room with mid-C17
chamfered spine beam and joists, and open fireplace with ogee-stopped
wooden lintel. Left-hand ground-floor room with pair of C18 plastered
beams, moulded cornice, and C18 wall cupboard adjacent to fireplace with
raised and fielded panel, H-hinges, and shaped shelves. C18 dog-leg
staircase rising to attic with closed string, turned balusters, turned
newel post, moulded handrail and simple Chinese Chippendale balustrade to attic
flight. C18 four-panelled and boarded doors throughout. The cruck
truss appears to be a former central open truss of an open hall and now
separates the lower kitchen block from the main part of the house. The
kitchen ceiling frame and the right-hand stack were probably inserted in
the hall in the late C16, the ceiling in the right-hand room of the main
part of the house is possibly an insertion of the late C17 or the remains
of a later partial rebuilding of the C15 house. The house was almost
totally rebuilt and extended to the left in the C18. This is a good
and largely unaltered example of a late C18 house and is especially
notable for its earlier core. Alcock, p. 143.
