2/932 Outbuilding and hop-kiln
approximately 10 metres
north-west of Little
Outbuilding and hop-kiln, formerly probably service range. Probably late
medieval origins, with mid Cl7 cross-wing, late C17 alterations and additions
and C19 hop-kiln. Timber-framing with red brick infill and red brick. Plain
tile roof. L-plan with cross-wing to right and hop-kiln to rear of it. Single
storey with attic and 2 storeys. Lower range to left has double doors to left
and 2-light casement and 2 doors to right. Square panel timber-framing to left,
on left end, and in part to rear. Attic window frame in gable end and partly
decayed roof. Interior has a full cruck truss to right. The cross-wing has
square-panel timber-framing to front with small projecting lean-to and 2 small,
2-light windows. Lattice framing to gable. Right end is of brick with dentilled
eaves. Rear gable, now internal has similar lattice framing. Roof has central
truncated upper cruck truss, the blades cut down and re-used. Double hop-kiln
to rear with slightly higher roof line, weather-boarded ridge louvre and small
windows to ground floor and attic rear. There appears to be a distinct relation-
ship between this outbuilding and Little Cherkenhill (qv), since the cross-passage
position is in alignment with the probable screens-passage position of the latter,
thus suggesting this was originally a service range to the house.
