4/6 The Bungalow


Small hall house, early C14, altered in C19, extended in C20. Timber-framed,
plastered, roofed with C20 'Roman' tiles. 3 bays aligned NE-SW, consisting of
a 2-bay open hall with 'high' end to the NE, and service end (or combined service
and solar) to the SW. External chimney stack at NE end, C19. Single storey
extension to rear of NE end, C20. Single storey with unlit attic. Two C20 casement
windows and C20 glazed door between them. Roof half-hipped at both ends. Lean-to
garage to NE. On the ground floor the walls are fully plastered internally and
the only evidence visible of the original structure is one arched brace to the
central tiebeam of the hall,the other boxed in. In the unlit attic the upper
part of the hall and the original roof are almost intact, all heavily smoke-
blackened. The SE wallplate has a splayed and undersquinted scarf 91cm long
(3 feet as built) and diamond mortices and rebate for a large unglazed window
near the NE end. The NW wallplate has been replaced without disturbing the rafters.
The NE tiebeam has diamond mortices and rebate for an unglazed window with 4
diamond mullions and central rectangular mullion. The central tiebeam is
cambered. The tiebeam between the hall and service end has been removed and
replaced by an iron strap. The roof is of collar-rafter construction. In the
SW bay of the hall there is evidence of a former timber framed chimney or
smoke hood, apparently the only heating until the C19 chimney was built. The
pegs attaching the collars to the rafters are of nailhead design, facing the
'high' end. Important evidence of the original structure is concealed within
the plaster of the walls, which could merit upgrading if it proves to be at
all complete.
