4/4 Blacksmith House
- II

House. Circa 1600. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered with
thatched roof, half-hipped at both ends. An internal chimney-
stack with saw-tooth shaft in white brick, topped with red. 2 3-
light small-paned casement windows to each storey, irregularly
spaced. 4 bays: now a 3-cell lobby-entrance form, but the
chimney-stack cuts into the ceiling of the middle room, and
appears to be secondary. The ceiling has exposed main beam and
joists, all chamfered, with scroll stops. The roof has short
bays with cambered collars and clasped purlins: no windbraces.
The hip rafters are of coppice-wood, and appear later in date. A
little single-storey C19 extension on the north, in flint and red
brick with a black-glazed pantiled roof.
