3/80 Annings


House. C17, maybe earlier, origins; refurbished as the present house in the C18,
modernised circa 1950 and circa 1970. Exposed local flint and stone rubble and a
wall top of plastered C20 brick; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick;
thatch roof.

Exterior: irregular 2-window front of circa 1970 PVC casements with rectangular
leaded pane effect. The passage front doorway is roughly central. It is relatively
wide and contains a C19 plank door. The roof is gable-ended and at the rear the
thatch is carried down over the outshots.
Interior: was modernised circa 1970 at which time the crossbeam in the larger right
room was replaced. There is no beam in the left room. The fireplace here has a
chamfered oak lintel but the sides have been lined with stone. The roof is carried
On 2 A-frame trusses, one with pegged and spiked lap-jointed collar and X apex, the
other similar but made up of timbers reused from a C17 side-pegged jointed cruck
