1. POSTERN LANE
Postern Forge House
TQ 64 NW 10/92
Formerly 2 cottages, now 1. L-shaped C17 building, but part dating from
late C15, the projecting south wing being short but wide. 2 storeys.
4 windows, 2 window bays being in the south wing. Now fronted with red
brick on the ground floor and tiles above but presumably timber-framed
beneath. Tiled roof. Half-hipped gable at the east end of the front of
the south wing. Smaller pointed gable forming the west half of the south
wing. Casement windows. This house may have been built in 1480 by Thomas
Willard, iron master, and was certainly associated with the iron trade for
many generations. The forge dam adjoins the house, the interior contains
a fire ingle nook and some late C17 panelling.
