Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list

SU 26 SE
5/10 Nos 272, 273, 274,
274A East Grafton
Cottage row. Cl7 and C18. Timber framed, rendered, some brick infill,
thatched roof. Plan now very uncertain but possibly C17 house extended
at either end and now 4 cottages, or possibly two Cl7 cottages originally.
Rear outshut. Nos 272 and 273 have rear lateral stacks, Nos 273 and 274
share a ridge stack, No 274A has a gable end stack. No 274 has a framed
rear wing apparently of nearly contemporary build. Two storeys, 7 windows
to whole, various C19 and modern casements, three modern gabled porches.
No 274A is an C18 addition.
Interior of 273 and 274 seen. Deeply chamfered beams with lambs tongue,
and bar stops. Roof part common rafter, part with windbraces. No 273
has a modern staircase, No 274 a winder one. Main room of 272 seen through
window. Heavily beamed ceiling and open fireplace.
An interesting cottage now of several builds but with the original planning
obscure without detailed study. Said to have been the Manorial court and
to be medieval in origin but the inspection possible did not display any
of this if it exists.
