Listing Text

In the entry for:-

TQ 88 NW
1/91 No 61

- II

the address shall be amended to read:

1/91 Nos 62 and 63


High Street, Old Leigh
TQ 88 NW No 61
Shop and two cottages, formerly single house, mid C16. Timber framed and black
weatherboarded with gault brick front of 1849. Former 'baffle entry' plan with two
rooms on each floor, about central stack and staircase. Original attic floor over
with extended main posts and plates at first floor and eaves level. Substantial hard-
wood frame with some pegging and straight diagonal braces interrupting studs. Original
large central stack has back to back fireplaces on ground level and becomes rectangular
brick stack on ridge line. C19 front has three arched headed window openings on the
first floor, the central one infilled. Ground floor has similar central window and 19/20
century shop front either side. Pair of old spiral staircases behind stack. Roof
has heavy principal rafters and butt purlins with the rafters morticed into the latter.
Fragments of pargetting stickwork on rear elevation and C17 window frame all under
the raised roof of a lean-to rear extension. To the east is a single storey C19 painted
brick extension with a hipped roof, added when the building was a public house.
Appears to be unusually late example of plan form and carpentry technique with very
interesting 'habitable attics'.
