6/5 Yew Tree House
-- II

Former farmhouse; originally the cross-wing of a larger house which extended
to the west. Early-mid C16 with C19 2-storey addition. Timber framed; part
plastered, lined to imitate ashlar to the east; ground floor mainly rebuilt in
colourwashed brick. Roof has concrete plaintiles to the front and black
pantiles to the rear. 2 storeys. Jettied gable end to road carried on plain
brackets. C18-C19 small-paned casement windows. To the east a lobby entrance
with a gabled porch and mid C20 plank door. Beneath the jetty an oriel window
with original cill, the remainder of the window of later date. To the right
of this a C19 6-panel door. Internal stack, a C16 or early C17 insertion.
Ground floor room adjacent to jetty has closely-spaced heavy plain joists.
Part of a blocked 4-centre arched doorway in the gable end. The chamber above
has fine heavy studding with tension braces. The open truss had solid arched
braces, one of which survives; there is a similar brace in the adjacent truss
now against the stack. Crown post roof: oblong crown posts, stop-chamfered
but otherwise plain, with almost solid 2-way braces to the collar purlin. The
structure of the roof provides clear evidence for the existence of an
adjoining range. Good newel stair with original treads. Remains of medieval
