SS 82 NE
2/54 Church House
Church house; now private dwelling. C16, altered and extended at right end in
1983. Unrendered stone rubble. Pantiled roof with gable ends, lower ridge level
to left end. Painted stone rubble stack with bread oven projection at left end,
and axial (formerly gable end) stone rubble stack towards right end. Plan: variant
former 3-room and cross-passage plan, with heated rooms to each end and small
unheated pantry to left of former cross-passage. In C20 the former staircase at
the rear of the cross-passage , and the partition to the lower side of the passage
were removed. At the same time a second entrance was made direct into left-hand
heated room, which was reduced in size by enlarging the former pantry and creating
an axial rear passage to connect the 2 end rooms. An extension of one room plan
was added at the right, lower end. The upper floor originally containing 2 rooms,
had separate external access from the graveyard by a doorway at the left gable
end, now blocked. Exterior: 2 storeys. 6-window range. C20 fenestration through-
out. C20 gabled stone porch to extension, C20 doors to cross-passage doorway and
towards left end. Initials HIH (?) inscribed on stone close to eaves of original
range. Interior: Ground floor much altered in C20. Chamfered lintel to fireplace
with bread oven at left end. Right-hand room has chamfered cross-beam and head-beam
grooved to take plank partition incorporating central doorway to lower side of
former passage. Unchamfered lintel to fireplace with bread oven. The timber
surround to the gable end blocked doorway survives ta first floor, apparently
unchamfered. Roof: Structure consists of 3 pairs of jointed crucks, said to be
full crucks. Trenched purlins replaced in C20. Only middle truss has a high thin
slightly cambered collar and is closed with an apparently original clay daub
partition. No sign of smoke-blackening. - -
