1/60 The Lodge
Former farmhouse. Early C19 front to early C16 and later core. 2 storeys and
attics. L-shaped form. Timber-framed and rendered, part with roughcast;
black glazed pantiled roofs, hipped. The rear wing has been encased in C19
brick, now colour-washed, and there is a single storey C19 lean-to, in rubble
flint with brick dressings, along the north side of this wing. The main
facade has 3 early C19 tripartite small-paned sash windows in flush frames to
ground storey and 2 to upper storey, with a single sash above the entrance
door, which is set off-centre within a C20 glazed porch. The rear ranges have
mainly small-paned sash windows, but there are also some C18 and C19 casement
windows. The house has developed in at least 4 stages, the oldest part being
the early C16 front range, which was extended on both sides in the early C19.
The central section, probably basically with a 2-cell form, has a good crown-
post roof,the crown post of the open truss of a simple cross-quadrate form,
with pilasters running down the sides of the post. There is no sign of smoke-
blackening, and the house must have been storied from the outset. A long
service range was added at the rear, forming an L, in the mid C17: this has a
plain unstepped butt-purl in roof, and was later encased in brick. When the
lean-to was added on the north, the original timber-framed wall on the north
side was cut away, and the upper wall supported by a post of octagonal form,
which may have been part of an open Jacobean porch or colonnade. The third
addition was a separately-roofed mid C18 block parallel with the front,
forming a double-house. This contains a fine geometric stair. The interior
of the house largely reflects later C18 and early C19 enlargements and
