Nos.16-20 (Even))


House. Late C16 or early C17 with later alterations.
MATERIALS: limestone rubble with zig-zag pantile roof and
brick stacks to right gable and inside-left to the rear.
PLAN: 2-unit plan with through-passage dividing small service
room from hall/kitchen to right with stack backing onto
passage and rear stair projection.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 3-window range. All windows are under
wooden lintels and have wooden frames; some H-hinges survive.
To the far left is a small C19 two-light casement; to
inside-left is a studded oak door to the passage. Above,
between the two, is a C20, four-light casement with a lintel
extending beyond to either side, probably a former wall-plate.
A similar window to far right has 3-light casement above it,
and both floors to the centre have C20 two-light casements.
The ends of 2 main rafters are exposed approx 1m below the
INTERIOR: The upper beam of a former plank-and-muntin screen
survives to the left, with traces of openings to the centre
and end of the now open passage; the right-hand wall of the
passage is the back of an open fireplace in the main room; at
the end of it is a doorway under a rough Tudor-arch lintel
with mortices to the right, possibly the end of a former
plank-and-muntin screen, removed to insert the fireplace. The
only remaining beam to the ground floor fronts the fireplace,
which has an arched oak lintel; the soffit of the beam has
been drilled, possibly fixing for a stud and wattle partition
before the fireplace was inserted, or a re-used member. On the
first floor are 2 jointed crucks between the bays, each
supporting 2 trenched purlins, scarfed at the principals, and
with notch-in-apex ridges.
The party-wall with No.18 (qv), to the right, is
post-and-truss filled with wattle-and-daub. The present stairs
are to the rear of the passage.
