House. C16 or earlier, with late C16 or early C17 additions and alterations.
Restored mid-to-late C20. Timber framed, with plaster infilling. Right gable
end weatherboarded. Plain tile roof. 3 timber-framed bays, that to left framed as
single-bay cross-wing. Wing, and possibly rear wall of main range, belong to C16
or earlier building, possibly an open hall of 2 unequal-length bays with
storeyed end bays or wings, only the left of which survives. The 2 "hall" bays
largely re-built in C17. Two storeys. Brick plinth to left end bay, stone
plinth to rest. Continuous jetty. Jowled posts and ogee tension braces to
front gable end of left wing and tension brace to narrower right end bay.
Broadly-spaced studding. Small area of close-studding towards right end of
central bay. Wall-plate of 2 right bays lower than that of wing, but eaves
raised in C20. Wing gabled to front, formerly with high collar, now with
lower collar and clasped purlins, and with lower ridge than main range. Main
range gabled to right. Multiple brick stack towards right end. Irregular
fenestration of 3 leaded casements; one 3-light to wing, and one to central
bay, and small 2-light to right end. Ribbed door to left end of central bay.
Photographs show further door between stack and right gable end. Short C20
rear wing to left. Interior: exposed framing. Evidence for door-head towards
centre of right wall of wing. Mortices for 8-light diamond mullion window to
rear of ground and first floors of central bay. Joists of lighter scantling to
2 right bays. Stone fireplace to left side of stack on each floor, with plain-
chamfered jambs and bressumer. No evidence for fireplaces to right. Date 1734
carved towards base of stack to right side.
