CLUNBURY C.P. KEMPTON
SO 38 SE
4/89 No. 25
1.12.51
GV 11*

House. Mid-to late C15, partly remodelled late C17 or early C18 with
later additions and alterations and late C20 extension. Timber framed
with rendered and painted brick infill and painted uncoursed limestone rubble
to right gable end; straw thatch roof. Original plan an open-hall house,
aligned east-west, probably of 4 cruck-framed bays (including solar); east
bay (service-end) with first floor and with ornamental truss between centre
and west bays of hall; centre bay floored over in late C17 when west bay and
solar were demolished and integral end stack built converting plan to 2-cell
baffle-entry type. One storey and attic. Framing: square and rectangular
panels, 2 from cill to wall-plate. Large arch-braced true cruck truss to
right gable end has stepping to apex, suggesting that whole truss was
intended to be visible from within open hall. C19 casements to left and
right and 2 raking eaves dormers, also with apparently C19 windows. C20
ledged door to far right. Integral rubblestone end stack to right.
Interior: 3 true cruck trusses survive, including that exposed externally
to right gable end, present central truss also formerly with arch-braced
collar, now sawn-off. First floor to east bay is probably original (on
different level from first floor of present right bay); room below divided
by square panelled spine wall, each small room entered by separate doors to
either side of dividing wall. This arrangement possibly preserves the
lay-out of the medieval service-end with buttery and pantry. There is
some evidence for the position of a screens passage below the present
centre cruck truss but evidence for external entrances is obliterated to
rear and hard to detect to front. Inserted floor to present right room
has parallel chamfered spine beams with flat joists (late C17/early C18)
and contemporary chamfered wooden lintel to stone inglenook fireplace.
Left dormer has 2-light chamfered wooden mullion window with stave holes
for vertical bars, probably C17 or earlier. Remains of leather covering.
Spine wall dividing left ground-floor noon has 2 leather pockets attached.
Inset cupboard above and to left of fireplace also has leather covering to
butterfly hinges. 2-storey timber framed addition in matching style to
rear, dated "1978" on tie beam, is not of special architectural interest.
