7/120 The Old Manor

House. Late C15 in part with C17 alterations and additions. Colourpainted
rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatch roof with gable ends. Complex plan, the
earliest exposed fabric surviving to the central section with gable ends to facade
and rear, formerly an open hall. C17 alterations added a stack with tapered cap
and drip heightened in brick, also probably the left-hand bay with brick stack at
the gable end. The range to the right side may also date from this period and
forms virtually a separate single cell wing with 2-storey outshuts to rear with
corrugated asbestos roof and to side with slate roof, parallel to the early core
with gable end to front and connected to it by porch with a wide entrance hall
behind containing the staircase.
2-storeys 3-window range of 3-light casements, that to left side 8-panes per light
on each floor, those to each gable have 2-panes per light. Pedimented porch with
6-panelled door, the upper 2 panels glazed flanked by 3-light window 8-panes per
light to left and 4-light casement 2-panes per light to right. Slate sundial
between the left and centre windows. 3-light timber ovolo mullion window to rear
of staircase landing and C17 2-light timber window to east side of right hand
range. Stop-chamfered beams and some early joinery to the three principal ground
floor rooms. Chamber to central section has fine waggon roof with 3 moulded ribs
sitting on ornately carved crenellated wall plate surviving to one side only, with
richly carved bosses at the intersection of the ribs with the single tier of
purlins and ridge purlin. The waggon roof does not extend the whole length of the
central section, towards the stack end there is a lath and plaster partition to a
closed raised cruck truss, which has heavier blades than the arch-braced collar
rafter couples supporting the ceiled part. Both sides are, however, thoroughly
smoke-blackened. A west wing was demolished in late C19.
