TM 26 NW
- II
Former farmhouse. C16-C17, probably in 4 phases. A long main range with
service wing set forward to right. Timber framed and plastered; the gable end
of the service wing is in C17 colourwashed brick. Pantiled roof, with glazed
black tiles to the front slope of the main range. 2 storeys and attic.
Scattered fenestration, mainly late C19 casements with a single horizontal
glazing bar to each light. Gable end of service wing has 2 small attic window
openings, one blocked, one with a 2-light window. 6-panel raised and fielded
door. Internal stack to main range, gable stack to wing. Left gable end of
main range has an early C19 doorway with convex reeded architrave with corner
roundels, reeded cornice and paired half-glazed doors; this doorway is now
within a later lean-to conservatory. Main range has C16 core, probably
extended by one bay at right (service) end. The earlier section has one
blocked diamond-mullioned window in the rear wall. The present stack and
parlour cell beyond are additions of c.1600, the 3-bay roof with 2 rows of
wind-braced butt purlins, the lower row set square. In early-mid C17 the C16
range was raised some O.4m, the roof having 2 rows of butt purlins (the upper
row stepped) and straight plank wind-bracing. The front range, the last major
phase, is mid C17, also with a butt purlin roof. Ground floor of main range
has early C19 alteration, the structure largely concealed. Early C19 parlour
fireplace with rope-pattern surround and corner roundels.
