House. Late C16 timber-frame encased in stone mid cl8. Internal evidence of
timber-frame, coursed rubble, stone slate roof. 3-room plan with lobby-entry
originally, altered in stone phase to direct-entry into 2nd cell; rear outshut.
2 storeys, 3 first-floor windows with single-storey outshut. Doorway with
monolithic lintel set between 2nd and 3rd bays, approached up a double-flight
of 5 stone steps. Windows have deep sills and thin lintels and retain 3-light
small-pane Yorkshire sashes. Brick ridge stack between first 2 cells, gable
stack to right. Rear: outshut has 2 doorways, one with C20 storm porch, and
2 Yorkshire sash windows. Cat-slide roof. Attached to left, later addition
not of special interest.

Interior: 1st cell has large-scantling square-cut floor joists and bressumer
to former fire-hood back-to-back with bressumer in 2nd cell which is covered
with oak panelling and supports stop-chamfered spine beam. Outshut has 5 posts
with joweled heads and curved braces to arcade-plate. King-post trusses re-aligned,
that over 1st cell altered in C18 to fish-bone king-post truss.

The accommodation would appear to have been kitchen, housebody and parlour
with service rooms to outshut one of which still retains hand-pump and stone

An important survival of a C16 timber-framed house with the unusual feature of
back-to-back fire-hoods only observed elsewhere in the region at Rigton Green
Cottage (q.v.). Said to have been the village Court House.
RCHM (England) report.
