20/28 No. 14


House, probably later C17, altered C20. Squared stone with cut dressings;
Welsh slate roof. Gable end to street shows timber lintel of old shop front
with 12-pane sash window (from Newcastle house) re-set beneath. Renewed
6-pane sash in gable. Left return 1 storey + attic, 4 irregular bays.
Renewed vertical-panelled door in old chamfered surround near right end; plain
sash windows, two in late C19 brick half dormers; C20 bay window near left end.

Interior: Roof structure has 6 jointed upper-cruck trusses with collars, and
ridge-beam carried between overlapped ends of the blades. Halved-and-pegged
joints in blades just above wall tops; lower parts embedded in walls, and
tenoned at base into 1st-floor beams.

Rare survival of a vernacular roof type which was probably common in the area,
cf. the re-set trusses from Gloster Hill at Dunstan Hall (Craster parish).
