1/35 Plantation House

- II

House. Circa 1500 and later. One-and-a-half storeys; 4-bay, 3-cell plan,
originally with an open hall flanked by 2 storied ends. An additional C18 bay
at the north end. Timber-framed and rendered on front; colour-washed brick at
north end; thatched roof. 2 small end chimney-stacks. A single-storey lean-
to along the west side. 2-light small -paned casement windows to ground
storey; 2 gabled and tiled dormers with fluted bargeboards; half-glazed door.
Widely-spaced studding exposed inside. The tie-beam of the open truss,
supported by long arched braces, has been cut through: mutilated remains of
shafts down the front of the posts. The roof, smoke-blackened right through
the 4 original bays, has clasped side purlins of triangular section and a
ridge-piece: vestigial queen-posts in the end partitions of the hall; these
partitions do not extend above collar-level; formerly a hip over the lower
end. Housings for 2 6-light diamond-mullioned hall windows in the soffits of
the wall-plates. The partition at the upper end of the hall has been cut away
at ground-storey level. A late C16 plain beam-and-joist ceiling was inserted
over the upper, and part of the lower, bay of the hall, leaving a wide opening
for a smoke-bay at the lower end. By the C18 the smoke-bay was ceiled over
and the 2 ground storey rooms heated by the end chimney stacks.
