7/33 Roding House
House. C15 or early C16 inserted floor and jetties to middle part,
renovated in early C19 when walls were heightened, jetties underbuilt,
and S wing reduced to a lean-to. Later C20 renovation and NW rear wing
added. Timber frame on stuccoed plinth, roughcast with slate roof hipped
at N end. A late medieval 3-cells house facing E of unusual plan form,
formerly with long open hall range and 2 storeyed end bays, projecting
and possibly of Wealden House form. Jowled posts in the parlour wing at S
indicate its roof was on the axis of the hall range. The N wing is
axially divided and until late C20 the front door was opposite the rear
door defining the cross-passage at the N end of the hall range. 2 lines
of dovetail lap joints on the 3 cross-beams of the C16 inserted floor of
the hall range indicate that there were wide jetties at front and rear,
now underbuilt. A large internal chimney was built at the upper end of
the hall but did not heat the parlour. There were staircases in each end
