The Deanery Bakehouse

Bakehouse. Circa early C17. Dressed stone, ashlar front. Clay plain tile roof with gableted hipped ends, and with some old clay crested ridge tiles. Brick end stacks. PLAN: Rectangular on plan. One rectangular room with a fireplace at either end, and a loft above with access via an external flight of wooden stairs at south end under a canopy fanned from the main roof cantilevered out over the end; the roof at the N end continues over a third bay. EXTERIOR: 1 storey and attic. Almost symmetrical 2-window and central doorway west front to original range, plus one bay addition on left (N) with smaller doorway. Original doorway has continuous chamfer, flat arch and plank door; windows to left and right with 2-light frames; doorway on left has stone lintel. The hipped roof at the south end is continued as canopy cantilevered out on the wall-plates with straight braces, over an open timber flight of stairs with timber balk treads; the stairs give access to a loft doorway with plank door; the south end wall has what appears to be part of a re-used Medieval niche, and above, the wall is of English bond brickwork. The ground level at the north end and rear (E) is higher; on the rear under the eaves there are wide openings; at the north end a window and doorway to the left. INTERIOR: Chamfered cross-beams without stops and unchamfered joists. The large brick fireplace at the N end has a large cambered timber bressumer and inserted C19 brick ovens; the fireplace at the south end was inaccessible. The roof has collar trusses, through side purlins and broad common-rafter couples without a ridgepiece. Trimmers at the front indicate that dormers have been added here, but have been removed. NOTE: Survey of 1649 mentions "the Dean's bakehouse". The NW corner of the bakehouse is said to incorporate Medieval fabric of the Dorter of the Benedictine monastery.
