DRINKSTONE THE STREET
TL 96 SE
1/26 Abbots Lodge
-
- II

House, mid C16 with additions of C20. 2 storeys. 2-cell lobby-entrance plan.
Timber-framed and plastered. The larger cell has a plaintiled roof: an
original or early outshut on the south side under a catslide roof. One C20
gabled casement dormer. An axial C16/C17 chimney of red brick. The smaller
cell to right is of one storey and attics, with pantiled roof. C19/C20 small-
paned casements. At lobby-entrance position is a boarded C19 door and open
C19 gabled porch on posts, with cusped bargeboards. The larger cell has good
close-studding and a lintelled open fireplace. In the outshut, a rare feature
at this date, is a staircase leading to a pair of original doorways with
vinescroll-carved 4-centred heads: these were probably moved from another part
of the house, and could be cross-entry or service room doorways. To the west
is a C20 addition with pantiled roof, set corner-to-corner, which is not of
special interest.
