- II

House, now shop, office and storage. Dated 1637 (Cudworth), later C17 rear
centre wing, C18 rear right wing; altered to cottages in the mid C19. Thinly
coursed rubble (rendered front), coursed squared stone with quoins to the C18
wing. Stone slate roofs (part collapsed). 3-cell linear plan with lobby-
entry to centre cell, rear outshut to left cell (collapsed), kitchen wing to
rear of centre cell (part-collapsed) and the C18 wing at the rear of, and
parallel to, the right cell. Two storeys. Original quoined doorway into
left of centre cell with moulded surround and Tudor-arched lintel bearing the
date (now illegible). Other openings, including the five 1st-floor windows
are later and not of special interest. Gable copings. Truncated, rendered
stack between bays 1 and 2. Later brick stack to right. Rear: one 3-light
flat-faced mullion window to C18 wing with a single window with stone
surround above. The centre wing (part-collapsed) has quoins to left only,
the right part rebuilt. Single-storey monopitch addition to left return,
above which is a window with timber lintel.
Interior: two stop-chamfered beams on stone corbels to left cell. Stone
stair against rear wall. Two boxed-in spine beams to centre cell. Wallplate
to rear of centre cell has mortices for aisle-ties presumably for an outshut
which pre-dated the later C17 rear wing. The rear wing has a central stop-
chamfered spine beam and a queen-strut roof truss with diagonally-set ridge.
The C18 wing has, to 1st floor, a deep skirting and a dado rail, fielded-
panel window shutters, fireplace with eared architrave and double cupboard
with H-hinges.
