Listing Text

TQ 1656 SE (north side)

7.9.51 Nos.33 and 35
(formerly listed as Nos.23 and 25)


Farmhouse, now shop. Probably C15 or early C16, reduced, partly raised, and
altered in later C16 or earlier C17; altered and divided into cottages
(subsequently shops) in C19; recently heavily restored and remodelled as shop
with offices over. Timber frame on a modern brick plinth, with rendered infill
painted white, red tile roof. Hall-and-crosswing plan, with the hall parallel to
the street reduced to one bay and 3-bay receding wing at the right-hand (east)
end. Now all 2 storeys (the hall probably formerly single-storeyed but raised in
the C16 or C17) and the wing jettied to the front; the exposed timber framing
now includes corner posts, mid-rail, jetty joists and bressummer, and studs (some
of these being modern replacements); in the recent restoration C19 or C20 shop
fronts were removed and the front wall moved back to its original line (except
the jetty), and the ground floor now has posts and studs, simple rectangular
windows, and double doors to No.33 (the hall), the upper floor has casements of
2 lights in the hall and one and 2 lights in the wing, and the hipped roof has a
continuous eaves line (and now no chimney). The left return wall has wallposts
and 2 rails (the upper formerly a tie-beam) and some raked braces of light
scantling; the right-hand return wall of the wing has a mid-rail and posts with
up-braces. Interior: much altered (e.g. by removal of some partition walls and of
the C17 inserted chimney stack and staircase, and replacement of some elements
of the timber frame) but the 1st floor of the wing has the tie-beams and east
wallposts of the cross-frames, with their associated braces, and remains of
wattle-and-daub in the spandrel of the 2nd of these. References: W.J.Blair
