2/43 No. 34
- II

House. C15, altered in early C17, and extended in early C19. 2 storeys.
Timber-framed and rendered: extensions in flint. Plaintiled roofs. 2 internal
chimney stacks with plain shafts, one in red brick, the other in white. Small-
paned C20 casement windows. The original house in 4 bays, with a typical 3-
cell medieval layout: a 2-bay hall flanked by 2 storied ends. At the north
end, the former service area was divided into 2, but the partition wall has
been removed and the end wall of the hall taken out. Rebates and housings for
diamond-mullioned windows in the gable wall, and a blocked stair trap in the
ceiling. Remains of cross-entry doorways, with the later hall chimney-stack
inserted backing on to the cross-entry. At the south end, the former parlour
has a blocked stair-trap, and the partition wall at the upper end of the hall
has the remains of 2 doorheads. A second stack inserted at the south end of
the timber-framed range. When the hall was ceiled over the outer walls were
raised and a new roof put on. All that remains of the C15 roof is part of the
open truss which formerly spanned the hall. The inserted hall ceiling has a
main beam and joists set flat, finished with a plain chamfer. All the timber
ceilings are exposed, and much of the wall-framing, with tension braces halved
against the studs in the one surviving partition wall. A 2-storey extension at
the south end, dated 1820 on the fireplace which backs up against the parlour
stack, is in black knapped flint, with red brick rusticated dressings. Small-
paned sash windows in flush frames, and a door in the gable wall.
