2/18 Willow Hall

- II

House, early C16 with alterations of c1550-1570. 2 storeys, 3-cell plan with lobby-
entrance. Timber-framed and roughcast. Hipped thatched roof; an axial chimney,
the shaft rebuilt in C19 red brick. Mid C19 2-light small-pane casements. Battened
and boarded C20 door at lobby entrance position; C20 open thatched gabled porch
on posts. The house has a central 2-bay hall; an early form of timber-framed
chimney once stood in its left-hand bay. In the roof space is an area of smoke-
encrusted plaster and a part of the oak framing of the head of the chimney. To
rear of the site of the chimney is a chamfered 4-centred arched doorway leading
to the parlour beyond. Coupled-rafter roof, arch bindbraced close-studding and
diamond-mullioned windows (blocked). Circa 1550 the service cell to right was
demolished and a parlour block built with brick chimney, (the bricks are unfired
except at the fireplaces to hall and parlour). Good framing with unchamfered
exposed joists; the 1st floor over the hall was rebuilt at this time also. Over
the parlour block is an arch braced collar-beam truss.
