6/1 The Rose Revived

Public house, former farmhouse. Probably early C16 with late C16/early C17
improvements, modernised in mid C19 and again in c20. Main block is stucco
probably over early timber framing, rear block is clad with peg tiles above
first floor level; brick stack and chimney-shaft; peg tile roof. Plan: T-plan
building. The main block is parallel to the lane and faces north east. An
axial stack between the left (south eastern) room and central room serves back-
to-back fireplaces. The right end room projects a little front and back.
Originally this room did not project at ground floor level but the first floor
jettied on 3 sides. The layout has been somewhat altered in the C19 and much of
the evidence for its development is hidden or was inaccessible at the time of
this survey. Nevertheless it seems that the jettied end was built in the early
C16 and the rest of the main block was rebuilt or massively refurbished in the
late C16/early C17 at which time the stack was inserted and the former hall (in
the centre) converted to a kitchen and the former inner room converted to a
parlour. The left end was refurbished in the C19 and in the C20 the back wall
that end was knocked out and the room enlarged into the rear outshot. The rear
wing projects at right angles behind the centre room. Its date is uncertain
since it was inaccessible at the time of this survey. 2 storeys possibly with
attics in the roofspace. Exterior: Regular 2:1-window front of C20 casements
with glazing bars. First floor windows in the main block are flat-roofed half
dormers. The front is stucco and mid C19. The corners have stucco quoins, the
windows have moulded architraves and the front doorway (to left of the project-
ing right end bay) is a 6-panel door with moulded stucco frame and shallow flat
hood with moulded entablature and ornate console brackets. The roof is hipped
both ends and the roof of the right end bay is also hipped. Interior: Only
limited access was available at the time of this survey. Nevertheless, enough
was seen on the ground floor to indicate that the old framed structure sur-
vives. The right end room ceiling is made up of heavy scantling joists with
dragon beams into the corners and evidence for the jetties. The centre room,
the hall/kitchen, has a large brick fireplace with a chamfered oak lintel and
the axial beam is plain chamfered. The parlour fireplace is blocked and the
ceiling joists there are replacements. An early roof with queen posts is said
to survive. According to the owner's own research, the earliest documentary
reference is from 1511. Other C16 documents refer to a dairy at the lower
(right) end. It has been an ale house since the late c18 at least.
