7/23 No. 125 (Kynaston
House. C16 or earlier, much altered in C20. Timber framed, roughcast,
rendered, roofed with interlocking concrete tiles. 3 bays facing NE with axial
stack, C20 extension at left end with end stack. C20 conservatory at rear. 2
storeys. 3 C20 casements on ground floor, 2 more on first floor, of which one
is in a gabled half-dormer. C20 door. Low-pitched roof. A transverse beam
extends through the front and rear walls, mortised and tusk-tenoned outside.
The interior of the right bay has exposed studding in the end wall, heavy and
widely-spaced, and heavy longitudinal joists of horizontal section. The next
bay has the inserted beam already noted, chamfered with lamb's tongue stops, and
chamfered joists of vertical section, all with lamb's tongue stops. The
original wallplates are just above first-floor level. The walls were raised
approx. 1.30 metres and the roof rebuilt in c.1954, following a thatch fire.
Little of the original structure is exposed, but the inserted floor is C17, and
the joists of the right bay suggest a late medieval origin which cannot be
confirmed on evidence visible at time of survey. All internal tiebeams severed
