7/107 Limekiln (formerly listed
as Limekiln Farmhouse)
- II
House, formerly farmhouse. Early or mid C15 with alterations of mid C19. 2
storeys. An H-plan open-hall house. Timber-framed, encased mid C19 in red
brick, the cross wings given flat pilaster-buttresses and dentilled eaves
course. Plaintiled roofs, the wings hipped since C18/C19. Rear and side
chimneys of C16 and later. Mid C19 small-pane sash windows with cambered or
flat arches of brick. C19 6-panelled door in cross-entry position, the upper
panels glazed. The timber-framing is of high quality and fairly complete;
close studwork with some tension-bracing. The 2-bay open hall has an open
truss with massive cambered arch-braced tie-beam (both arch-braces are cut
back) and an octagonal crown-post with well-moulded capital and base and 4-way
solid bracing. The parlour wing to right has an ogee-moulded binding joist,
and in the solar is an open crown post truss and a blocked doorway with 4-
centred head. All crown-post roofs are complete. A 1st floor was inserted
into the hall in C17, and attic floors throughout. A good C18 corner cupboard
in a parlour formed in the service wing. A 2-storey extension, perhaps partly
encasing some earlier work, was added to left in early C20.
