ST 8011
4.9.60 No 24 (Yeatmans)
House of 2 parts; left range parallel to the road possibly C16 or earlier,
remodelled late C16/early C17 with later alterations; right range C17 at
right angles to road. Left range is timber framed with brick nogging
above rubble plinth. Thatched roof, brick stack to left of door. Right
range in banded rubble and flint with ashlar quoins. Thatched roof, gabled
to front, half-hipped to rear. Plan; cross passage between two ranges with
stack of left range backing onto it, right range forms a cross-wing. Left
range, single storey and attic, irregular fenestration. 2 and 3-light C20
casements with leaded-lights. Similar 3-light dormer. The right block
has 2-light hollow chamfered stone mullioned window to east and to the
gable. Gable and ground floor windows have returned labels. The west wall
has 2 3-light timber mullioned windows on the upper floor with ovolo-moulded
mullions. Internally the left range has a room with intersecting deep
chamfered ceiling beams and wall plates. Fireplace with chamfered timber
bressumer. The right range has deep stop chamfered ceiling beams and a
fireplace with apparently reused stowed, moulded stone jambs and a
timber bressummer moulded to match. An upper floor room has some plaster-
work with a vine motif and a cupboard with chipwork carving. The left
range appears to have the remains of what may be a redundant jointed cruck
truss between the stack and the cross passage. It is possible that the
house originated as a timber framed, jointed cruck, open hall with the
upper end to the east. This may then have been ceiled and a stack inserted
in the C16; then in the C17 a new cross wing was built to the west which became
the main living accommodation and the former upper end became a service
wing. "RCHM, Dorset, vol III", p 204, no 7.
