CODDENHAM CHURCH ROAD
8/9 Nos.1 to 5 (cons.), Church
A terrace of 5 houses. Built in two stages and probably as one house; a late
C15 open hall house (now Nos. 1 and 2), with an extension to left of late C16.
2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered with some areas of late C18 or early
C19 cable-pattern pargetting in panels. Plaintiled roof, hipped at right hand
end. Four axial chimneys of red brick, one being of c.1600, later recapped.
Mainly C19 small-pane casements and boarded entrance doors. (No.1 has a pair
of casements and a boarded and battened door all of mid C20). A 2-bay open
hall is mainly contained within No.1. The central open truss is incomplete,
but has a tie-beam with a deep arch-brace springing from a chamfered pilaster.
Complete smoke-blackened crown-post roof; the central cross-quadrate
crownpost has lateral braces dovetailed into the collar, instead of being
tenoned as is normal. Good exposed framing: close-studding, blocked original
windows with square mullions, and lodged heavy floor joists. An upper floor
was inserted in the hall in late C16; plain joists, and a binding joist with
leaf-carved chamfer stops. The C16 extension is unusually long and may have
been added as a subsidiary dwelling; it has plain substantial framing, with
arch-braced studwork and a plain crownpost roof.
