TM 17 SE
House, at one time the parish workhouse. 2 phases of C16 and possibly earlier
work; addition of c.1700 to right forming a single long range. Timber framed
and plastered. Roof over C16 section has interlocking concrete pantiles; clay
pantiles to later addition. 2 storeys and attic. 5 windows, C19 2-light
casements with small panes. 2 doorways with mid C20 doors, one with open
porch, one with flat hood. Internal stack within earlier range. The main
part is in 4 bays; bay 4 (to the right) is evidently a mid C16 addition and
the stack in the adjacent bay a later insertion. Both phases have good first
floor studding, with curved braces at the earlier end and reverse-curved
braces in bay 4. Most of the original structure on the ground floor is
concealed. Queen post roof over both phases, contemporary with bay 4. Circa
1700 end has intact studs, the main posts at the gable end with ogee-corbelled
heads. The roof over this end has 2 rows of stepped diminished butt purlins.
