639-1/5/342 (North side)
House. Late C15/early C16 with mid-C19 front. Timber-framed;
fronted in red brick; C20 plaintiled roof.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys: this is a 2-bay fragment of a larger
house. One window to each storey: a 2-light small-paned
casement to the upper storey and a sash in plain reveals to
the ground storey. Recessed C20 entrance door in traditional
style, up 3 steps with wrought-iron handrails. The door and
the ground storey window have flat rendered arches. An end
chimney-stack has a plain rebuilt red brick shaft.
INTERIOR: most of the timber frame survives inside with
substantial quite widely spaced studding and some remains of
original wattle-and-daub infill. Shutter slides and empty
mortices are evidence for paired 4-light diamond-mullioned
windows on both storeys: one rear ground storey window has
mullions still in situ. The main transverse beam on the ground
storey has been mutilated, but retains triangle stops.
The associated joists are wide and unchamfered. The trusses
have cambered tie-beams; arched braces remain in the end truss
on the west, which has no evidence of original studding. The
tie-beam of the open truss has a central mortice and peg for
the base of a missing crown-post; the collar-purlin has been
reused to make 2 side purlins.
Removal of the crown-post structure is related to the
chimney-stack, inserted in the later C16 into the eastern bay,
but with 2 back-to-back hearths, one serving the now missing
part of the house. The stack is in Tudor brick with a wide
plain cambered lintel to the ground storey hearth.
