- II

House; c.1550 with C18 and C19 alterations. Originally of 2-cell end-chimney
plan form. One storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered, the studding
is exposed with plaster infill. On a corner post is the raised and apparently
authentic, date 1619. There is no evidence of work of this date in the house,
it may refer to replastering or refenestration which has been removed. Some
C18 herringbone pargetting in one gable. Thatched roof with one eyebrow
casement dormer. An axial chimney of C19 red brick. C19 and C20 casements.
A C20 boarded entrance door in lean-to thatched porch. An unusually small and
narrow example of a heavily-framed C16 house, with only a two-bay hall and
single small service room, and lofts above. Massive unchamfered floor-joists.
A blocked diamond mullioned window under the eaves. A C17 lintelled open
fireplace. To left is an C18 additional cell, to rear right is a C19 brick
extension and to far left a C20 extension.
