5/66 The Grange

- II*

House. C14 and C16, with early C20 extensions. 2 storeys. Timber-framed, with
the timbers exposed on most of the outside; a small jettied wing extending
forwards from the main range has brick nogging to the ground floor. To the
west of this wing the walls of the main range are rendered and lined. Thatch
to front roofs, clay pantiles to rear. 2 internal chimney-stacks with large
plain red brick shafts. Various casement windows with diamond leaded panes.
The core of the house is a C14 reinstated 2-bay open hall with crown-post
roof. At the lower end are the 2 service doorways with continuous pointed
arches; at the upper end a chimney-stack has been added, the timber lintel
having folded-leaf carving and a merchant's mark in the centre. In each side
wall are the remains of 6-light diamond-mullioned hall windows. The crown-
post, braced 4 ways at the head, has a simple cross form and broach stops to
the base. The inserted ceiling of the hall, with ogee-and roll-moulded beam
and joists, was removed in the early C20, and reused in one of the 2 wings
built on at the back of the house. To the east of the hall, a 2-bay C16
parlour block was added in conjunction with the chimney-stack. The heads of
the main posts are carved with emblems of the Passion: the Sacred Heart,
crown of thorns, nails, hammer and pincers, some mutilated. The original
service rooms were replaced in the early C17 by an enlarged range, with a
chimney-stack on the side wall, probably designed as a kitchen. The small
jettied wing, an early C16 addition to the house, has a main beam with ogee-
and roll-mouldings and curved stops.
