SD 54 NW
5/171 Scorton
No.29 (The Haven)

House, probably C17, altered. Slobbered rubble probably replacing clay and
wattle, with corrugated iron roof over thatch. One storey with attic. At
the left there is a wide early C20 window projecting under a canopy, It
has casements with glazing bars and was added when the house was used as a
shop. Further right are 2 windows with plain reveals, the left-hand one
modern, the right-hand one with glazing bars. Between these 2 windows
there is a door with plain reveals. Chimney to right of wide window.
Left-hand gable wall has door with rendered surround and an attic window
with plain reveals. Inside, the front door enters into a room with 2 boxed
axial beams. In the wall which divides this room from the 2 right-hand
rooms there is a cruck truss partly visible. Below the apex of the truss
is a yoke, above which the blades rise to meet the ridge. The attic over
the left-hand (north) end of the house is open to the rafters. The north
gable wall contains a roof truss, visible on the inside. The owner said
that during alterations the inner skin of the wall was found to be wattle
and daub. The corner of the rear wall which adjoins this truss has a
chamfered and stopped vertical post which is tenoned into what is
presumably part of a wallplate, at ground-floor ceiling height, possibly
evidence for an original timber and wattle outer wall.
