- II
House. Probably C15 with late C19 alterations and addition. Timber
framed,of cruck construction,with painted brick nogging and brick
additions; plain tile roof. Baffle-entry plan of 2 framed bays,
fragment of former hall house. One storey and attic and 2 storeys.
Central brick ridge stack; 2 gabled semi-dormers to rear with 2-
light casements. Framing: light framing, much altered, probably in the
C18 and C19. 2-window front; 2 first-floor C20 three-light casements,
ground-floor late C19 wooden cross-casement to left and 3-light wooden
casement to right; half-glazed door just off-centre to left. Large
full cruck truss exposed in right-hand gable end with low tie-beam and
collar. Late C19 addition at rear with integral lateral brick stack.
Interior: chamfered beams with plain and ogee stops; chamfered former
wall-plate in left-hand ground-floor room; angle brace and sawn-off
moulded bressumer in first-floor room at rear is possible evidence of
a former bracketed dormer or some other external construction. The
eaves have been raised and the roof rebuilt, probably in the C18 or C19.
(see former wall-plate above first-floor windows to front). The
exposed cruck truss was probably the central truss of a 2-bay open hall
and the left-hand bay was probably the lower end; the entrance was
probably to the right of the present one (see probable blocked doorway)
and the stack is probably a late C16 or C17 insertion. Alcock, p. 143.
