4/21 The Old White Horse

-- II

House, latterly a public house. C16 parlour cell, the remainder probably
early C17, almost certainly replacing a medieval range. Timber framed and
plastered with a thatched roof. 2 storeys and attic. 3-cell form. Windows
mainly mid C20 small-paned casements; 2 diamond-mullioned windows, one of them
altered. Small single-storey addition set forward, with mid C20 door and open
porch adjacent. Internal stack; smaller stacks at each gable end. Internally
a considerable amount of the structure is exposed. The hall and parlour have
chamfered joists; in the parlour is part of an original window with cavetto
mullions. The hall fireplace has a fine moulded and embattled lintol, the
surrounding brickwork rebuilt mid C20. At the service end some heavy re-used
joists, probably medieval. Parlour range has queen-post roof; later range has
a single row of clasped purlins. The C18 or early C19 corner bar is still in
place. A tie beam has been painted with the words 'CHEESE ROOM'.
