House. C15. One-and-a-half storeys; 4 bays; formerly with an open hall.
Timber-framed and rendered, with thatched roof, and an internal chimney-stack
with a plain red brick shaft. A single-storey extension at the east end, and
a small lean-to along part of the front. C20 replacement casement windows,
one eyebrow dormer, and plank door in brick surround. The interior contains
one bay of an open hall, divided by a stud and plaster partition from a
storied bay which has the remains of a ceiling of rough, heavy, unchamfered
joists, and an original doorway leading into the hall. The hall bay retains
the position of the 2 long windows on the side walls, and has smoke-blackening
on the partition wall, and on the rafters and collars above the upper ceiling-
level. In the rear wallplate is a stop-splayed and tabled scarfing joint with
a transverse key. One arched brace remains in position, but the tie-beam of
the open truss has been cut away, and part of it re-used as a fireplace
lintel: a large empty mortice indicates that it carried a crown-post. The
second bay of the hall was remodelled and probably extended in the late C16,
and now contains a chimney-stack with an open fireplace and a single-bay
unheated room with a plain beam-and-joist ceiling. The gable end on the west
has 2 diagonal timbers like truncated passing braces, halved against the tie-
beam; evidence of a former hip, and diamond-mullion housings in the soffit of
the collar, all indicative of a series of structural changes.
