7/6 Outhouse 10 metres E of
Old Post Office Cottages
House, c.1500, now a woodshed/coalshed. Timber framed, partly weatherboarded,
partly clad in red brick in Flemish bond, roofed with red clay corrugated tiles.
2-bay hall aligned NW-SE, and service bay to SE. Extended to SE by one short
bay in C17. One storey. SW elevation, 3 boarded doors, one small C20 casement
window. Gablets at both ends of roof. The interior has jowled posts, and
complete crownpost roof in original building, with curved axial braces. No
inserted floor, no inserted chimney stack other than one for a free-standing
boiler near the SW wall. All the original roof is smoke-blackened. This
originally comprised a 'Unit System' pair with Old Post Office Cottages (q.v.),
and because it was the smaller house of the two, and occupied only
intermittently, was never converted with a brick chimney stack as was common in
the late C16. RCHM 22.
