5/123 Old Mill House
House. Mid C16 core, considerably rebuilt c.1800. Timber framed and
plastered, roof of mid C20 interlocking concrete pantiles. 2 storeys. 2-cell
form. Ground floor has 2 mid C20 casement windows without glazing bars and in
the centre an C18 3-light window with small panes. 3 old 2-light casement
windows to first floor. Lobby entrance with mid C20 gabled brick porch and
plank door with panelled face. Internal stack. The main components of the
frame are intact but there is replacement studding with straight primary
braces. Hall (to left) now divided into 2 rooms: moulded bridging beam with
run-out stops, the C16 joists all halved longitudinally and re-used. The wall
posts are chamfered with broach stops. Parlour has axial bridging beam with
slightly simpler moulding, also with run-out stops; joists concealed; evidence
for a gable end window with large diamond mullions. A tie beam over the hall
chamber, now within a studded partition wall, has peg holes for queen posts.
Oak newel stair. Roof not examined but almost certainly replaced c.1800.
