4/142 Nos.1,3 (Tudor House)
House, formerly Kings Head P.H., C15 with C16 and C20
alterations. Timber frame, rendered with steeply pitched tiled
gable roofs and a yellow brick ridge stack. Plan of hall and
crosswing. Hall, C15 of one storey and attic. One dormer and
two windows and a doorway, all C20. The doorway is possibly on
the site of the original entry to the medieval cross-passage.
Crosswing, of two storeys, with the first floor jettied and
carved on shaped brackets. Two windows, both C20. There are
C20 additions at the rear. Interior: The hall was originally
open to the roof and had a floor and stack inserted in laid C16.
The mid C16 ceiling is carried on clamps pegged to the side
girths of the walls. The main beam has a chamfered and leaf
stopped main beam and roll moulded joists. There is an
inglenook hearth. The open hall was completely reroofed in C19
or C20 but one rafter of the original crown post roof has been
retained. It is well carpentered, sooted and has a joint for a
collar. The crosswing is in two bays and was probably a parlour
or solar wing. The framing is exposed at first floor,
internally between the crosswing and a bedroom. The framing is
substantial and close set, and there is paired, curved downward
bracing from the principal post to the side girth. The ceiling
to the ground floor room has chamfered main beam and large,
unmoulded joists of uniform scantling. Originally the first
floor was open to the roof, and the ceilings were inserted
possibly in C17. The cambered tie beams have arch bracing. The
roof is intact and of crown post construction. The crown post
is unmoulded and has curved bracing to the collar purlin only.
Each pair of rafters is joined by a collar.
