21.6.62 (formerly listed as
House and Shop (Moy))


Wrongly shown on OS map as nos. 81 and 85. House, now house and shop. Early
C15, altered in mid-C16 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with red
plain tiles. Hall house with C16 axial stack in right bay, and 2 crosswings,
originally jettied to street, now underbuilt. Left crosswing now oversailed by
roof of nos. 79 and 81 (item 8/79, q.v.). Floor inserted in hall and roof
raised c.1540. 2 storeys. 3-window range of C20 casements, and small C20
shopfront in right wing. Half-glazed door. Stack rebuilt at top in late C19.
Stop-chamfered beams. Some smoke-blackened rafters re-used in raised roof.
This property and nos. 79 and 81 were under joint ownership for much of their
history, and have been roofed and sub-divided and re-combined without regard for
the divisions of the original structure (Wherein I Dwell, Earls Colne WEA, 1983,
42-3). RCHM 4.
