SU 31 NE
7/15 Church Farmhouse
House, possibly of late-medieval origin as a timber-framed hall with two-
storeyed cross wing at the east end, the oldest parts being c1600, with re-
cladding of the late C18 and rear extension as an outshot, later raised to two
storeys in the late C19. Walls of brickwork in English bond, some Flemish
bond, with cambered arches and rubbed flat arches: the base of the rear wall
has massive roughly-coursed stonework. Tile roof, brick dentil eaves.
Symmetrical south front of two-storeys, three windows, with single-storeyed
(C20) west wing of one window, and a lower two-storeyed east wing of one window.
Sashes in exposed frames, ground-floor casements to the wings and windows of
the other elevations. 6-panelled door (two top glazed) in a plain frame,
within a simple open porch, hidden by a clipped yew surround. The interior
has early and late framing, a Tudor doorway, a C17 fireplace, and the remains of
a gable, indicating a cross wing. The rear of the house is a lower narrow
(forming a double pile) with walls indicating that the present two storeys was
formerly single-storeyed, beneath a catslide roof. The stones were quarried
from a nearby monastic site.
