- II

House. C16 and C17, with C20 extensions. 1½ storeys. Timber-framed and
rendered; clay pantiles; an internal chimney-stack with a plain red brick
shaft. C20 2-light casement windows and 2 gabled dormers; C20 porch and red
brick extensions on south end. Interior now with 3-cell lobby-entrance form,
but 2 bays at the south end contained a one-bay service room and part of the
hall, with the remains of a cross entry. The partition wall between the
cross-entry and the service room has been moved over, but still has the
original doorway with 4-centred-arched head. On the upper floor of this
section 2 tie-beams have been removed, and there is a blocked 5-light original
window with diamond mullions in situ. The roof has the remains of clasped
purlins and windbraces. A second bay was added to the hall in the C17, at a
slightly different level: the joists, set flat, are chamfered and scroll-
stopped. 2 further bays to the north contain a chimney and parlour.
