11/142 No. 29
31.8.62 (Church Farmhouse)


House, C15 and c.1670. Timber framed, pebbledash rendered, with
long straw thatched roof, half-hipped, with grey, gault brick
ridge stack. Plan of single range and lobby entry but part of
the crosswing of C15 house remains at right hand. Kitchen wing
at rear is also C17 and framed. Two storeys with attics. The
crosswing is jettied at first floor and has one window to each
storey. The main range has two C19 flush frame horizontal
sliding sashes at first floor. Doorway to lobby entry with six
panelled door. One hung sash and one horizontal sliding sash at
ground floor. Interior: The main beam to a ground floor room
is carried on a pad similar to that of No. 10 George Street
dated 1672 (q.v.). There are abutting inglenooks, now blocked
and some typical late C17 framing with shallow bracing visible
at first floor. The roof is of clasped side purlin construction
with uncarpentered timber. One of the upper rooms was used as a
cheese chamber. The crosswing has ceiling joists of substantial
scantling laid flat and unmoulded. Inspection of the roof
revealed that it had been rebuilt in c.1670 but sooted rafters
from the C15 roof had been re-used. A small staircase, early
C18, closed-string with vase shaped balusters remains.
