-- II

Farmhouse. Early C15, enlarged in C16, altered in C17. L-shape plan with
service cross-wing to left. Timber framed and plastered. To rear the cross-
wing has an early C18 brick gable end with tumbling. Roofs pantiled to front
and plaintiled to rear. 2 storeys with attic to main range. Scattered
fenestration: 2 C16 cavetto mullioned windows; 2 C18 first floor casement
windows with some square-leaded glass; C19 and C20 casements. Plain axial
stack with rebuilt shaft. At the rear are 2 further C16 mullioned windows and
in the cross-wing a boarded half-door. Small plastered stable block to rear
of cross-wing. Core of house is a former open hall, raised over lm, in C17.
Good paired C15 service doorways with 2-centred arches. Arched-braced open
truss, originally with crown post. Parlour and service ends both rebuilt in
C16. Parlour has fine close studding and cross-beamed ceiling. In chamber
above a quoined stucco fireplace with depressed 4-centred arch. A further
arched fireplace in the attic, an unusual feature. Part of upper floor
structure of cross-wing has been removed but there is a good first floor frame
and intact queen-post roof. A good example of the C16-C17 development of a
farmhouse from a medieval origin.
