5/64 Millcroft

- II

House. Early C17, with remains of earlier core; C19 exterior. 1½ storeys.
Timber-framed, encased in mid C19 red brick, including a single storey lean-to
along the rear added at the same time; thatch. An extension along part of the
south side has the roof-slope running into the main roof. An internal
chimney-stack with a large plain shaft of old red brick. 2-light and 3-light
casement windows with a single bar to lights; one eyebrow dormer. C20
panelled and battened door. Framing exposed inside: no middle rail; reversed
braces at the corners. The ceilings, with the joist ends resting on clamps,
give the impression of being at least partly inserted: plain chamfered joists,
deep main beams. An additional wallplate has been added along part of the
rear wall; a section of the earlier plate has housings for diamond mullions,
and traces of smoke-blackening, and part of the studding has been replaced.
The chimney-stack has 2 back-to-back hearths on the ground floor with open
fireplaces, plain lintels, and good original brickwork. Roof inaccessible. A
large C20 extension at the east side is not of special interest.
