3/84 The Firs
House, late C14 or early C15 with rearward extension of c.1600. A 2-bay
service crosswing, 2 storeys high. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched
roof. C19 small-pane casements. A C17/C18 boarded entrance door in east
side. Quite complete framing exposed internally; evidence for a jettied upper
floor facing north, but the entire gable was rebuilt in primary-braced
studding in C17/C18. Widely-spaced original studding. A blocked 2-centred
arched service room doorway and blocked diamond mullioned windows. An open
truss with cambered tie-beam, and square-sectioned slightly curved archbraces.
Roof inaccessible. A single-bay extension to rear has arch studbraced walling
and an original attic; probably c.1600. The house was clearly once attached
to an open hall standing to its right (see following item).
