TM 16 SE
1/31 Debendrift
- II

House, c.1530 with alterations of late C16 and later. 2 storeys. 3-cell
cross-passage entrance plan. Timber-framed and plastered with early C19
herringbone pargetting in panels. Pantiled roof, probably once thatched. One
axial and one gable chimney of red brick; each with 3 detached square shafts
in the C17 manner but probably a C19 copy. Late C18 or early C19 casements
with metal opening lights. A late C20 glazed entrance door at cross-entry
position. A well-built sub-medieval house: the 2-bay hall has an arch-braced
tie-beam (one thin brace only remains), and appears to have been open for a
few decades, with a fireplace from the outset. The service cell has massive
unchamfered floor joists. Fragmentary coupled-rafter roof (the walls were
raised and a new roof built over this section in C18/C19). A 2-bay parlour
block was added in mid/late C16: close-studding, heavy and well-chamfered 1st
floor structure, windbraced clasped-purlin roof. In late C16, an upper floor
was inserted over the hall with less-massive chamfered joists, and a lintelled
open fireplace added (the early fireplace was probably of timber). A small
C18 rear wing has a possible date 1766 scratched on a wallplate.
