SX 88 NW
2/108 Little Clampitt
Small house. Circa early C16 origins, refashioned in the early C17, thoroughly
remodelled in the C19, C20 rear addition. Colour-washed rendered cob and stone
slate roof, gabled at ends, axial stack and left end stack.
Plan: A simple 2 room plan single depth house of medieval origins. Renewal of
timbers at the left end has obscured the plan but it seems likely to have been a
large heated room at the right end with the stack backing on to a passage and a
narrow unheated room to the left, subsequently heated. A smoke-blackened truss
indicates the open hall origins of the house which was probably floored in the early
C17. A rear left flat-roofed addition gives an overall L plan.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with a front door with late C19 or
early C20 gabled porch to left of centre (on site of doorway to putative passage),
late C19 timber casements with glazing bars only at the top.
Interior: The right hand room has a chamfered step-stopped crossbeam and some
original exposed joists : fireplace with bread oven and possible site of former stair
adjacent to it. Ceiling beams in the left hand room are renewed. The first floor
has a 2-light C17 timber mullioned window in the right gable end wall (blocked
Roof: One smoke-blackened jointed cruck truss survives over the right end below later
timbers. The crucks are side-pegged and the truss has a threaded ridge and mortised
collar. A fragment of the former hip cruck is embedded in the right end wall. The
timbers over the left end of the house are entirely renewed.
Although very altered in the post-medieval period Little Clampitt is one of an
unusually dense group of medieval and C17 houses at the higher end of Christow and is
important historically as a house of medieval origins in the group.
