casements, ground floor 2 windows of 3 lights, first floor 3
windows of 2 lights. Early C20 red brick stack in front of
roof apex at junction of the 2 units. Rear, SW elevation, old
unit masked by C19 and C20 additions, main range first floor,
single-light window with leaded diamond panes, cross-wing,
first floor 2-light window. To rear of main range, C19 red
brick addition, now flat roofed, with C19 stack at junction
with timber-framed block. C20 door, with single upper glazed
panel and C20 single light casement window, broad C19
segmental arch, also C20 single light casement in C19 segment
headed opening. C20 door with 2 large glazed panels at
junction of C19 and C20 extension to SE. Later lean-to on NW
side of C19 extension; roof cuts diagonally across rear of
cross-wing. SE end elevation. C20 3-light casement above C20
extension. NW end elevation. Wall exposed above C20 extension
is of C17 brickwork cladding over timber-frame, now
colourwashed. C20 2-light window.
INTERIOR: ground floor much rebuilt and with imitation
timber-framing. 2 bayed main range and 3 bayed cross-wing.
Building sequence: (1) Late C16 main range of one and a half
storeys, slightly cambered tie-beam and halved and bridled
scarf joint in wall plate. (2) Early C17 cross-wing with
tie-beam and curved arched bracing, raking queen struts above
and face halved and bladed scarf in wall plate. Principal
floor joists have lamb's tongue chamfer stops. (3) Later C17
roof of main range raised to level of cross-wing to create 2
full storeys. Rear bay of cross-wing probably rebuilt then,
(rudimentary primary braced studding). RCHM, South Weald
Monument 13, notes a principal stack `cross shaped and set
diagonally' i.e. of early C17 type, no doubt contemporary with
the cross-wing. Single storey C20 additions added to NW and SE
end not to be included in the listing.
