6/123 No.9 Shop and
Church End
4-10-72 Farmhouse


Shop, formerly manor house of the South family. c,1200 with
extensive alterations of the C14 and some of the C20, Squared
chalk blocks, some brick patching, pantiled gabled roof with
raised stone coped west gable rising to a carved and decorated
C14 roof finial. Rectangular plan. 2 storey 1 bay west front.
On ground floor is a C20 planked door in wooden architrave set
within a former C14 window opening, the wall beneath which has
been removed in order to accommodate the door. Covered by a C20
gabled roof. On the first floor is a fine C14 3 light window
with cusped ogee tracery, moulded mullions and central transom,
moulded flat hood mould with human head label stops. Inside, the
ground floor has little beyond some irregular square aumbries in
the side walls, now plastered. On the first floor, however,
evidence of a first floor hall is provided by the presence of a
fine hooded fireplace, the hood having a bold roll moulding along
its top edge, and supported on simple corbel brackets. In the
east wall are traces of 2 doorways opening from the body of the
hall chamber. In the south wall is a window with a rounded head,
formerly a door. The presence of this door with its early detail
and evidence of first floor access encourages the view that the
structure is earlier than certain of its surviving architectural
details. The thick walls, first floor access and rounded arch
would all have been archaic by the C14. To the east of the early
block is a later brick house with extensive C20 alterations. The
site was originally moated; part of the moat can be seen to the
north of the early block.
