TM 04 NE
6/148 The Mutton
- II
House, formerly Public House known as The Shoulder of Mutton. Early C18 with
alterations of later C18 and C19. 2 storeys, 3-cell plan. Timber-framed and
plastered. Plaintiled roof with axial chimney of red brick. Mainly 3-light
C18 casements, some with transomes. C19 boarded entrance doors. Although the
present structure appears to date from after 1700, almost all its main
components are from a demolished C16 building with diamond-mullioned windows
and a crownpost roof. The entire 1st floor structure over the hall is of
massive C16 joists, and the cambered lintel over the wide hall fireplace is
also C16. The remaining C18 work has slender joists and straight primary-
based walling. In late C18, the service end to right was extended by one bay.
In C19 an outshut to left and a small wing to rear were also added. A house
on this site is mentioned in documents of c.1630, then known as Armigers. This
building became a Public House c.1770.
