-- II
Former farmhouse. First half of C16. Later wing, perhaps C17, to rear.
Timber framed and plastered, shallow-pitched concrete-pantiled roof. 3-cell
form. 2 storeys. 3 windows, mid C20 casements with small panes. Internal
stack has axial shaft of narrow brick. Later stack against left gable end.
Mid C20 doorway at rear. Interior. A good quality 5-bay frame with heavy
studding and tension bracing. Evidence for massive tie beam braces to open
trusses over hall and parlour chambers, the tie beams and original roof lost.
Hall and parlour ceilings have heavy cross beams, the joists concealed. The
hall ceiling beams are knee-braced to buttress-shafted wallposts with moulded
caps, an unusual feature. Blocked rear cross-entry doorway has wide 4-centred
arch. Good intact service partition, the paired central doorways with moulded
jambs and hollow-chamfered 4-centred arches; Front wall of parlour chamber
has sill of former oriel window. An arched doorway at the rear on the upper
floor may have led to a stair wing. Some evidence in parlour for an original
timber flue. The present stack is a later insertion into the hall cell, with
back-to-back open fireplaces on the ground floor. 2-bay rear wing, the upper
floor supported by secondary timbers set in front of the wallposts. Formerly
known as Hill Farmhouse.
