NORTHGATE (west side)
Nos. 13/15


House, probably dating in part from the late C16 or early C17 but largely mid
C19 to front. Single storey hall and cross-wing. Hall rendered to front, large
dressed stone to rear, hammer-dressed stone to 2-storey wing to left which is
gabled and has tall single windows with plain stone surrounds to each floor. In
right hand return wall is former doorway with monolithic jambs, now window.
Hall range has 2 doorways, one now window, the other with the date "1 6 7 8" set
in render over lintel. Rear of hall has 5-light chamfered mullioned window
(lacking 3 mullions) to left of doorway with monolithic jamb and heavy lintel
now forming small window and former 3-light square flat faced mullioned window
with slightly recessed mullions, one window opened to form small doorway. Low
sweeping roof with central stack of C18 character. Wing has similar stack and
retains large dressed stonework indicating the wing is an original feature but
raised and altered mid C19 with 2 windows to ground floor and former taking-in
door to 1st floor with tie-stone jambs, now a sashed window.
Interior: Hall has reused post as wall plate with heavily jowled head and sawn
off tenons for braces to tie-beam and arcade plate. Simple C18 fireplace with
monolithic jambs and flat arched lintel. Earlier roofline of aisled hall on
adjoining building (No. 17) mainly C19 and of little interest. Adjacent to
Whitehall and gateway with lintel dated 1578 (q.v.). Though much altered in the
C19 and disguised by render mid C20 this remains an important and rare surviving
open hall-house in the centre of the village with substantial evidence of having ripen,
aisled and timber-framed.
