WEST STREET (East side)
Manor House

Large corner house. C17, modified. Rendered and colourwashed, Ham and artificial stone dressings; concrete plain tiles
between coped gables; brick chimney stacks. Double roof plan; 2 storeys with basement and attics. 3 bays. Plinth,
string courses, rusticated quoins, coped gables to each bay; 4-light C20 mullioned windows to ground floor, 3-light
first floor and blind 2-light to second floor, only these last original albeit eroded; small Venetian window to first
floor centre bay: in basement to bay 1 a 4-light mullioned window: to lower bay 2 a C20 door and fanlight in architrave
under open pediment on console brackets; concrete steps up to door, with earlier wrot-iron handrail. North elevation, 2
bays to match, with C20 plain mullioned windows ground and first floors; the attic windows appear to be reserve-chamfer
moulded, and have hoodmoulds; the attic window to bay 1 is 3-light and has moulded square squint-holes to sides.
Interior: north west corner room on ground floor has Jacobean oak panelling with Corinthian pilasters and enriched
frieze, and other ground floor rooms has C18 pine panelling and doors. The house never an actual manor house, has
endured drastic external restoration and has been subdivided. No longer justifies the former higher grading. (VCH, Vol
III, 1974).
