8/207 No. 140 (Gages)


House. C16, altered in C18. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red
plain tiles. 3 bays facing NW, with axial stack at left end and external stack
at rear of right bay. Long single-storey range to rear of left bay, with axial
stack, and weatherboarded lean-to extension with corrugated iron roof to right
of it. 2 shorter 2-storey rear wings to right, and small lean-to extension at
end of left wing. 2 storeys. Ground floor, 2 splayed bays of C19 sashes of
8-12-8 lights. First floor, 2 early C19 sashes of 4 + 18 lights with crown
glass. Central 4-panel door with simple moulded canopy. C20 studded door at
left end. Plain parapet. Original studded partition to right of central
entrance hall, inserted partition to left. Boxed axial beams. Jowled posts.
Most of the frame is concealed by plaster, but in the rear wall of the left
upper room is a blocked (probably unglazed) window, and one exposed curved
tension brace trenched inside the studding. No access to roof. Some C18/early
C19 2-panel and battened internal doors. In the ceiling of the left
ground-floor room is a turned wooden vent similar to that in Lawn Cottage,
Church Street (item 9/139 q.v.), but in this case, without an external vent.
Abuts on no. 142 (The White House), item 8/208, at left, and on no. 138
(Peppercorn Whole Foods), item 8/206, at right. The latter was originally a
crosswing of this house.
