ST 00 NW
10/110 Nos. 4 and 5
2 houses. Early C17 with later modifications and extensions. Cob, stone plinth,
plastered, under gabled-end slate roof. Formerly a 3-room, through passage plan
house, the lower-end (now No.3) to the right of the passage with shallow rear wing to
inner room. The narrow rear rooms to the higher end ('Church-Side') and the rear
winder stair turret appear to be part of the original design. Evidence of a large
(formerly external) lateral back stack to lower end; axial stack backing onto
passage; left-hand end stack emerges from front face of roof; both functioning
stacks with brick shafts. 2 storeys.
Front: 4-window range, 2 and 3-light barred casement windows above, all C20; two 3
and one 5-light windows to ground floor, all C20 barred casements; both front
entrances under slate-roofed, open porches, the door to 'Church-Side' (the former
through passage) with moulded door surround.
Rear: considerable C20 alterations, but 3-light stair-turret window with chamfered
jambs and mullions survives, although much repaired, along with an early-C19 3-light
window, shallow chamfered jambs and mullions, and a ring latch.
Interior: passage with 1 chamfered cross beam with hollow step stops; opposed
doorway now blocked. Hall with large fireplace, stone jambs and wooden lintel with
ovolo moulding which is carried uninterrupted through rounded corners; 3 cross beams,
cyma reversa mouldings and hollow step stops; Post and wattle screen divides Hall
from inner room; inner room with deeply chamfered unstopped beam. Original
chamfered door surround into stair turret, and from foot of stairs into rear room,
with stops. Remains of late-C17 or early-C18 splat balusters with turned newel; 2
original door frames upstairs (1 surviving only partially), with screen dividing
front from back rooms, with unchamfered muntins. Room above Hall with fireplace,
chamfered, but treated in the fashion of the hall fireplace.
Roof: 4 bays to main range (principals morticed and side-pegged); 1 of the 2 trusses
to rear wing has a saddle, side-pegged, unusual in a roof of this late date.
