Listing Text


3/39 Cranmer Lodge

Farmhouse. C16, with older core and later extensions. Timber-framed; C20
render with large incised and moulded panels; black glazed pantiles; shallow-
pitched, hipped roof with wide eaves overhang and paired mutule cornice. 2
storeys; 3-cell form to main range. An internal chimney-stack has 4 high
attached hexagonal shafts on a rectangular base with a blank recessed panel;
on the left, a former end stack now surrounded by later extensions has a
stepped base and 2 barrel shafts with moulded bases. 3 windows to each floor:
small-paned sashes in flush frames, that on the right ground floor a blank.
The small C19 enclosed and gabled porch, rendered and slated, has plain
bargeboards and spike finial; entrance door with 6 flush panels, rectangular
fanlight with frosted and coloured glass, reeded surround. To the left of the
entry the upper room has main cross-beams with a double roll-moulding, run-off
stops, and a brattished cornice with miniature crenellations. The remaining 4
bays, including, and to the right of, the entry, have been considerably
raised: the line of the older wallplates survives below the level of the
present upper windows, and the curious skew arrangement of the cross-beams in
the room to the right of the entry is associated with the earlier arrangement
of main posts. One pair of posts have housings for arched braces; in the rear
wallplate is a long stop-splayed scarfing joint. The ground floor room at the
right end has a ceiling with main beam and joists exposed: all are
substantial, chamfered, with curved stops. Roof C19 replaced.
