8/35 Little Fleece
House in row. c16 or C17; restored 1942 by Sir George Oatley. Cut squared
limestone, stone slate roof. Set gable-end to the street, with entrance to left
in fabric of adjoining property (Old Fleece, qv); C19 back wing. Two storeys,
attic and cellar, 3 windows. At ground floor and first floor three 2-light
set-back chamfer mullion casements, and in gable a 3-light similar, all set to
individual stopped drips; low right, set in the plinth, a 2-light wood casement
with bars to basement. Also, far right a small single light stair window
opposite the gable stack. Left, beyond the principal roof-line, a C20 flush
panelled door, in a bolection mould surround and under a stopped drip: this
gives to a cross passage which has a 4-centred opening at the far end. The
central ground floor window seemed to replace a one-time door. Coped gable to
street and right, with large stack. The back wall includes a 2-light casement
with a central double mullion, also, left a wide chamfered square opening.
Interior has stone vaulted cellar (not inspected); right end of ground floor has
very wide inglenook firs with extremely flat 4-centre arch hollow chamfer lintel
set to solid stone cheeks, above is a smaller hollow chamfered square opening
fire, and a further stone cheeked fireplace to wood bressummer. There are
various chamfer-stopped beams. Roof structure appears to be Oakley's work, and
the staircase is of C20. The ground floor used as a shop by the National Trust.
