No.17, long continuous rear brick C19 additions (a) 2 storey
and (b) single storey. House E end gable visible,

window of 4 panes. (a) rendered on ground floor,

INTERIOR: has framing of C16 four-bayed house with 2-bay open
hall and storeyed end bays (No.17), much altered but basic
outer frame visible with a heavy jowled post. No.19 is the
high end bay of the open hall, central truss posts with
chamfered arched braces to tie-beam, shape continued down post
as chamfered fillet, simple crown post roof above, sooted with
collar purlin and 2 rising braces to it from the crown posts.
No.21, rear side of hall high end cross wall has original
studding, widely spaced, approx 56cm between centres, 2 arched
braces to tie-beam in framing. Also rectangular pattern of
large diameter peg holes, probably for a warping frame. Lower
ones possible for bench at hall high end. C18 remodelling has
altered the roof structures, side purlin construction was
introduced and the 2 gable ends were no doubt changed from
being similar having windows set above the tie-beam and
half-hip roofs with apex gables above. Now the E end is a
simple gable and the W end is a full hip from gablet to
tie-beam. No.21 has now an inserted floor which is of late
C16-early C17 type with diminished haunched soffit tenons, a
partial C17 remodelling between the original house and the C18
form. Quite possibly the site of the central stack could have
been established then.
