II

House, then museum. Reported empty and awaiting redevelopment 23/11/2016. c.1840 with later additions but
incorporating a C17 timber-framed structure. Rendered brick
with slate and graduated stone slate roofs. 3-bay 2-storey
central-staircase plan with single-storey wing to left and
parallel timber-framed range to rear. Tudor style revival.
Symmetrical elevation with projecting plinth, rusticated
quoins and coped parapet. Tudor-arched central porch with
panelled door and fanlight. Canted bay windows on either
side are said to date from 1890s when the wing was added to
left. Three paired sash windows to first floor with
hoodmould and central mullion. Central false gablet above
parapet. Coped gable parapets with kneelers. The timber-
framed structure projects to the rear right, the framing
being exposed on the gable-end. Square panels, jowled corner
posts and a 9-light diamond-shaped timber mullion window
with small leaded panes. A 2-storey wing (possibly
originally a porch) on the left return stands on a stone
plinth. The rest of the early structure is obscured by
additions or alterations. Internally a Tudor-arched door
surround, part of the framing and chamfered floor beams are
visible.

The history of the site extends back considerably further than the present building.
