2/9 Patch Park
Late medieval hall house altered in C17, C19 and C20. Timber framed, plastered,
roofed with handmade red clay tiles. Aligned approx. E-W with 2 2-bay
crosswings, jettied to the S, external chimney stacks to E and W. Hall
completely rebuilt in late C17, as 2-storeys with attics. Extra crosswing added
to E, C18/19. N of hall block extended in C19, forming a catslide roof. Single
storey ancillary building with hipped roof to SE, C20. S elevation, jetties
plastered over on both crosswings, roof of E crosswing lower than W. Plain
boarded door in tiled gabled porch, 3 casement windows, all C20. 3 more on
first floor,'and one in a tiled gabled dormer. 'N elevation, painted brickwork
to first-floor level, plastered above. Boarded door in 4-centred head, late
C19/early C20, in tiled gabled porch, 3 C20 casement windows, 2 more on first
floor. In wing to E, blind arched recess. Some exposed framing in middle
section only. Exposed joists of deep section over ground floor. Plain-
chamfered beams with lamb's tongue stops over first floor. Butt-purlin roof,
purlins joggled to accommodate originalsdormer. Crosswing roofs not
accessible,'but probably of crownpost construction. It is clear that the E
crosswing was the service end of a typical medieval house, and that the present
N and S doors perpetuate the line of the original cross-entry, without retaining
its structure. Originally the front of the house was to the S, now the garden
elevation. -The W crosswing was the original parlour/solar end. Most of the
structure of the 2 crosswings is probably present within the plaster.
