TQ 1354 NW (east side)

7.9.51 Nos.2,4,6, and 8
(formerly listed as Nos 1 & 2
Church Cottages and Nos 3 & 4
Church Place)


House, subsequently 4 cottages, now 3 dwellings. Probably later C16, with wing
added in later C17, cottage added in C19. Timber frame cased in brick (rendered
at 1st floor), red tile roof. L-plan formed by original 2-unit house (probably of
smoke-bay type), with receding wing added at right-hand end and cottage added
to left end. Two storeys and now 4 bays; altered doorways in 2nd and 3rd bays
(and evidence of former doorway in line with chimney at junction of 2nd and
3rd); 4 large altered or inserted casement windows at ground floor, and 4 small
altered casements under the eaves; roof hipped at both ends, with ridge chimney
offset left of centre; side-wall chimney at left end, and composite chimney
stack at rear gable of wing. Rear wall mostly covered by added lean-to, but in
the narrow band above this the tops of 3 wall-posts and one curved brace are
visible, and some very small windows. Interior: Nos. 2 and 4 (now one dwelling)
have timber-framing, including wall-posts with both curved and straight bracing,
wall-plates, rails, and the tie-beam of the former south gable wall with mortices
of a former wooden diamond mullion window in the soffit; a spine beam at
ground floor with tongue-stopped chamfer; and a common rafter roof, with an
added axial purlin from which the 1st floor ceiling is suspended. No.6 has an
spine beam of inferior quality, some tension braces in the former north gable
wall; and the roof of this part (which was not inspected) is said to have some
smoke-blackened rafters.
