House. C15 with later alterations and additions. Timber-framed, rendered. Part
cased in painted brick. Thatched roof. Red brick stacks. Original open hall,
now 2 storeys throughout. 2-bay hall with former service bay to left. Partly
reconstructed bay to right may replace former cross wing. Board door in C20
gabled timber porch flanked by 3-light C20 casements. To left a 3-light cross
casement with leaded lights of probable early C18 date with a further board door
to right. Phoenix fire insurance plaque above. Three small C20 windows to 1st
floor and one 6-pane sash in flush architrave. Roof half-hipped at left. Ridge
stacks, off-centre and to right end. Single-storey brick addition to right under
pantile roof not of special interest. Rear: mainly C20 casements, one probable
C18 casement to right. End bay and gable end to left cased in brick. Interior:
service end retains studded partition wall. Inserted ceiling to hall with
tongue-stopped chamfered beams and exposed joists. End room to right has raised
ceiling. First floor: end room to left has studded walls, long shutter groove in
wall plate below half-hip. Large stack inserted against hall principal truss.
Jowled posts with large arch braces forming pointed arch beneath steeply-cambered
tie beam supporting a square-section crown post. Studded walls and shutter
grooves to front and rear wall plates of hall. Right end shows alterations from
original layout. Hall roof: smoke-blackened crown posts braced to purlin only.
Original thatching rods and triangular smoke outlet (now blocked). Right end roof
reused slightly-blackened rafters with clasped purlins. Crown post and truncated
purlin visible in partition wall between hall and right end section. The exis-
tence of this partition would seem to confirm that a change of plan has occurred
at this point.
