4/9 No.2


House. Circa 1600. Timber-framed and rendered; plaintiles. 2 storeys; 3-
cell internal chimney and cross-entry plan. The chimney-stack has a plain
shaft of small Tudor bricks. 2-light and 3-light C20 standard casement
windows to each storey. The building was formerly divided into 2 and still
has 2 half-glazed doors, neither in the original position. Frame in 4 bays,
including a chimney-bay; timbers exposed inside. Widely-spaced but
substantial studs with a middle rail; trusses with cambered tie-beams, arched
braces (mainly removed), and jowled posts. On the upper floor, several
blocked original diamond-mullioned windows, including one in each gable end:
only one mullion remains in situ. The main ceiling beams have a chamfer and
curved stops; in the one-bay parlour the unchamfered joists are set flat and
closely spaced. The roof has clasped side purlins, the remains of
windbracing, and intermediate collars between trusses, and was formerly
thatched. The C19 brick addition on the left, now No.5, is not included in
the listing.
