TM 05 NE
4/88 Hicks Farmhouse
- II

Former farmhouse, mainly late C17, but with possible earlier core. Lobby-
entrance plan. 2 storeys, partly with attics. Timber-framed and plastered.
Pantiled roof (formerly thatched) with axial chimney of red brick. Mainly mid
C20 casements, and flush entrance door with fully-glazed porch. Much framing
exposed; major reuse of mediaeval components, probably from a C14 open hall
house, the wall plates having a splayed scarf joint of that date. The clasped
purlin roof is built mainly of smoke-encrusted mediaeval rafters. The house
has 4 cells, and may have been built in 2 stages, the left hand section being
the earlier.
