5/176 Nos 18 and 19

House, now 2 cottages, probably Cl5 refaced Cl8. Timber frame and
brick with greensand ashlar plinth. Thatched roof half-hipped left and
gabled right. Brick stacks to right gable and to left of door. 2
storeys, 4 window range. 3-light casements with leaded-lights except
to upper floor over doors which has a similar 2-light casement. Right
hand windows have diamond panes. Ground floor windows under segmental
brick arches. Paired front doors. Internally the plan has three
rooms with a cross-passage backing onto the stack. The building is
of true-cruck construction with traces of soot-blackening. There is
some plank and muntin partitioning. The hall appears to have had an
internal jetty. The house appears to have originated as an open hall
with ceiled solar and possibly an integral byre. At a later stage
the hall was ceiled and a stack inserted. It was then refaced and
converted into 2 cottages in the Cl8. Manuscript notes by P Cunnington, 1977.
