1/37 Ashes Farmhouse
House. C16 or earlier, extended in C19. Partly timber framed, partly of brick,
mainly roughcast rendered with some weatherboarding, roofed with handmade red
plain tiles. 2-bay crosswing aligned NE-SW with C19 central stack, of a hall
house which formerly extended to the NW. Large C19 T-shaped extension to NW,
forming a central range and second crosswing, with internal stack at the
junction. Facing SW. 2 storeys. 4-window range of mid-C19 sashes of 4 lights.
C19 half-glazed door in gabled porch. Both crosswings project about 0.25 metre
forward of the central range, but the roof of the original right crosswing is
approx. 0.60 metre below the remainder. This crosswing has an underbuilt jetty
and deeply chamfered wallplates with step stops. Most of the frame is concealed
by modern finishes, but one stud is exposed internally on the upper storey of
the right wall, and pegging in the wallplates indicates the positions of other
studs. Roof rebuilt in clasped purlin form in C17.
