TOLLESBURY PRENTICE HALL LANE
TL 90 NW
5/33 (10/156) Rolls Farmhouse
l0.1.53
GV II

House. Mid-C16, altered in C18/C19. Timber framed, plastered with some
exposed framing, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3-bay main range aligned
E-W, with axial stack in middle bay. 3-bay crosswing to E. C19 single-storey
extension to W, with external stack at end. 2 storeys. N elevation, ground
floor, one early C19 sash of 20 lights, one C20 casement, one C19 casement.
First floor, one early C19 sash of 4 + 8 lights, one of 20 lights. Early C19
6-panel door, altered. The crosswing is jettied to the N. S elevation, ground
floor, main range, 2-window range of early Cl9 sashes of 16 lights, and on the
first floor, 2 blocked original windows each with 3 moulded mullions; crosswing,
one C20 sash on each floor, and on the ground floor, 2 blocked original windows
each with one moulded mullion. The interior of the main range has jowled posts,
and a doorway with plain doorhead to the W (service) bay; the wide wood-burning
hearth leaves the original cross-entry unobstructed, and still in use. There is
a full-length underbuilt jetty to the S; the axial beam is chamfered and
unstopped, and the joists are plain and of horizontal section. The
parlour/solar crosswing is entered by a doorway with thin Tudor doorhead. The
joists are of horizontal section, roll-moulded to the N, plain to the S, and the
beam is moulded. The roof of the crosswing is of queen-strut construction,
repaired. Roof of main range inaccessible, but apparently much repaired. No
explanation is apparent of the anomaly by which the main range was originally
jettied to the S, the crosswing to the N. RCHM 24.
