- II

House. Probably late C17 to early C18, roof raised in late C18 to early
C19 and extended in late C19. Timber-frame, brick and plaster infill with
brick extension to right clad to resemble timber-framing, continuous tiled
roof, external stone stack to left gable and right of front side, both
rendered with detached brick shafts. Two structural bays aligned east/
west. Two storeys. Four windows, 2-light late C20 casements, three to
left of front stack and one to its right; one to left of roughly central
late C20 gabled porch with entry in left side. Frame is four panels high
from cill to wall-plate with angle struts to corner posts and posts dividing
the two bays. Left gable has exposed trenched purlins of former roof.
Interior: C17 ledged door to upper left principal room; two panelled cup-
boards in left ground floor room, one either side of end hearth, are probably
late C17 to early C18; roof trusses have V-struts from collars. The C19
extension probably replaced a timber-framed bay to the right since the
front side stack remains.
