8/184 P. and A. Wood (formerly
21.12.67 listed as The Garage)


House, now garage and stores. C16 or earlier, altered in C17 and C18. Timber
framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 4 bays facing NW, with
axial stack in second bay from left, forming a lobby-entrance, now blocked
internally. 2-storey extension along whole length of rear, and long commercial
garage beyond. 2 storeys. On ground floor, one C20 reproduction sash of 16
lights, 6-panel door with moulded architrave and cornice, C18, and C20 plate
glass display windows. On first floor, 3 early C20 sashes. The original walls
are approx. 3 metres high, raised by approx. 1.5 metres in C17. The interior
has one exposed transverse beam, chamfered with step stops, and one axial beam,
chamfered with lamb's tongue stops. Clasped purlin roof, with smoke-blackened
medieval rafters re-used as purlins. This is probably a hall house with
inserted stack, but no evidence is exposed of the framing of the lower walls.
