(South Side)
(formerly Upper Roos
(formerly listed as
Bridgefoot Cottage)
TL 62 NW: 4/90


C14 timber framed and plastered hall house, with peg tile roofs. 2 bay, former open
hall with contemporary solar/service cross-wing to west. Original 'in-line' parlour
bay to east, was almost immediately altered to give the appearance of a further cross-
wing. Adjoining the rear is a 2 bay, C16 kitchen/service block: with gabled peg tile
roof. Generally the roofs are gabled, but with a hip at the rear of the west cross-
wing and a gabled dormer to the main, front, roof slope. Windows are a mixture of
C19 casements with glazing bars and some old cast iron casements. Both cross-wings
retain their original decorative bargeboards with ogee cusping. The hall retains its
original roof line but has an inserted C16 floor and old brick stack. The tie beam
arch braces remain, partly damaged, a moulded tie beam and similar, elaborate, cross
quadrant crown posts to hall and west cross-wing. Remnants of an ogee headed front
door and the western service doors and parlour door openings can be discerned. The
west cross-wing has a possibly C17 external wall stack, chamfered mantel beam and
original moulded and pegged shelf. The original hewn oak ladder stair survives in
the back room. Fragments of external and internal pargeting and wall painting survive.
One diamond mullion window opening (mullions have gone) retains its, nailed on,
shutter pelmet. The rear kitchen block has simple, soot blackened, crown post roof
and serpentine bracing. Floor joists have central tenons. (RCHM 8).
