No. 53
(Formerly listed as Applegarth)

House. Early/mid C17, (but possibly the house described in an inventory
of 1598), W service wing late C17/early C18, lower N extension and brick
casing to S gable wall in C19. Timber frame on painted brick sill with
painted brick infill. Painted brick N extension. Red tilehung red brick
S end with corbel at jetty. Steep old red tile roof. A 2-storeys and
cellar house facing E with continuous E side jetty, rear outshut under
catslide roof, and 1½ storeys N extension. A 2-cells plan with end
chimneys, central entrance and through passage (subsequently widened to
N to accommodate a staircase). Cellar under S room with access from rear
outshut where original stair was probably situated. Jettied E front has
wide-spaced studs on first floor and RH half of ground floor. LH half of
brick with cellar window below. 2 windows to each floor; Yorkshire
sliding casements of 2-lights on first floor, and of 3-lights on ground
floor with external panelled wooden shutters. N extension has a gabled
dormer window over a 3-light window with 2 small 3-light windows under
the eaves to RH part. 8-panel door (top 2 glazed). Projecting ends of
crossbeams in jetty mark original bay divisions and these are confirmed
by the axial chamfered and stopped floor beams, the N beam extending
into the widened passage. The S beam is stopped to suit the larger S
gable chimney which must be contemporary. The chamfers on the joists in
some cases extend to the exterior. Clasped-purlin roof. An important
house when built. The N extension was a butcher's shop in living memory.
