SS 63 SW
House Probably early C16 altered in C17 and again in C20. Colourpainted rendered
stone and cob. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Tall rubble lateral hall
stack to front with drip and offsets, heightened in brick. Brick shaft to rear
heating lower end. 3-room through-passage plan, formerly open hall house with
floor inserted in C17 when a projecting rounded stair turret was added to the rear
of the hall. 2 storeys. 2 window range of 2 light casements, 6 panes per light to
left, 2 panes per light to right. Gabled slated porch to through-passage. Old 9
paned fixed light inserted in angle of right side of stack overlooking doorway.
C20 3-light hall window 3 panes per light and stable door at left end. Small 2-
light timber mullion window with semi-circular arched heads to each light.
Interior: C17 chamfered door surround and old plank door to upper end of first
floor corridor. Original joists and stop-chamfered beam survive to hall and inner
room. Single raised cruck truss survives over lower end of hall with smoke-
blackening extending over the lower end to the single tier of surviving threaded
purlins and diagonally threaded ridge purlins. The collar to the truss is
plastered over but appears to be slightly cranked and morticed and tenoned into the
soffits of each of the blades. The upper end/hall division is created from a solid
cob wall partition rising to full height with no apparent smoke-blackening to the
original roof structure beyond the partition, suggesting that inner room and upper
chamber are possibly C17 additions.
