5/139 The Grange
Former farmhouse. Core of perhaps early C16 with C17 enlargement; later
alterations, especially of late C19. A long main range with a short anciliary
wing set forward of the right gable end and almost corner-to-corner with it.
To the rear of the main range on the left is a small gabled addition in
parallel. Timber framed with facades encased in late C19 red brick; remainder
of main range mostly plastered. Plaintiled roofs except rear slope of main
range which is pantiled. 2 storeys and attic. 4 windows, inset 4-paned
sashes; a further sash window and 2 mid C20 tripartite casements to ground
floor, all with timber lintols. To the right is a mid C20 three-quarter
glazed door. Internal stack, placed almost centrally, with a rendered shaft
with corbelled cap. The wing has similar windows and a gable stack. Interior
much altered, mainly in C19; most of the framing is concealed. To left of
stack is a 2-bay room with heavy plain joists; the bridging beam, now reduced
in depth, shows evidence for substantial braces to the wallposts. To right of
stack is a further 2-bay ceiling with plain joists; the bridging beam, also
cut back, shows evidence for studding. Queen-post roof over centre of range,
with crude crown-post trusses above: the crown-posts are plain and are not
pegged to the collars; one-way bracing to collar purlin. Some rafters show
evidence of fire damage the the roof has probably been partly rebuilt. Over
each end is a C17 roof with stepped butt purlins.
