12/07/72 Nos.85 AND 86
A pair of houses, probably originally one. Mid 17 with late
C18/early C19 alterations. Timber-framed and rendered above a
high brick and flint plinth; C20 Roman tiles.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; cellar to No.85 only. 2 end and one
internal chimney-stack each with a plain red brick shaft. 4
windows to each storey, irregularly spaced: small-paned
sliding sashes to the 1st storey, 12-pane sashes to the ground
storey, all in flush cased frames. 2 6-panel entrance doors,
each approached up a flight of steps with wooden handrails.
No.85 also has a door within the plinth.
INTERIOR: No.85: cellar with renewed ceiling is only half
below ground and was formerly used as a stable. Walls of rough
flint and re-used stone. Frame in 3 bays. One roughly
chamfered ground storey ceiling beam with scroll stops, the
remainder boxed. The internal stack is of C17 brick; open
fireplace with a plain timber lintel. Remains of a bread oven.
On the upper storey the dividing tie-beam has had its studding
replaced. A long shutter slide in the front wallplate. Roof in
4 bays, apparently a C18 replacement, with clasped purlins,
deep straight collars, ridge piece. The rafters are thin and
on edge, some re-used, with traces of smoke-blackening.
