No 29
SU 1429 NW 3/440

C13/C14 building with Cl9 alterations. 2 storeys stucco faced. Steep gable
end old tile roof. Large gable to front on right hand and 2 storey gabled
C14 porch. Both gables have C19 bargeboards. Below large gable on 1st floor
tall 3 light casement. 2 light transomed casement in ground floor. To left
of porch one 2 light casement to both floors. All these windows C19 with
drip moulds. The porch has a small pointed window facing east on 1st floor.
Entrance to porch has pointed arch chamfered, moulded jambs.
Probably in its original state the house consisted of an open hall with cross
wings, the eastern part only remaining now. On 1st floor the roof of former
east cross wing is largely intact. 5 bays, massive tie beams, collars with
cambered brackets, crown post in partition wall and cross bracing. 3 tiers
of windbraces curved.
Some purlins and rafters renewed. The furthest bay to north is sealed and
narrower than others: apparently a smoke bay and this was probably the service
wing. West partition of large 1st floor room has wall posts and studding.
The western roof of 2 bays is a later alteration, possible resetting, with
King post, collars and curved windbraces. On ground floor chamfered stone
arch in hall. The panelling probably C19 reset. To rear the building is of
stone rubble and brick on east side with external chimney.
