3/42 The Golden Cross


House. Timber frame of west wing possibly C15 (Ryder) and of the hall range
C16 (dendro date 1537-9). The east wing and rear outshut probably C18 or
early C19. C20 alterations. Rendered with applied timber boarding to cover
framing. Stone slate roof. H-plan with rear outshut to 2-bay hall range,
the left (west) wing is 2-bays long. Two storeys. Both wings are gabled and
have one 2-light window to each floor. The hall range has a central ground-
floor window with entrance to far right and two 2-light windows to 1st floor.
Brick stacks. Outshut to rear with altered openings. Rear of west wing
shows exposed posts, tie-beam and curving braces.

Interior: The west wing has a collar rafter roof with evidence that the ends
were formerly half-hipped (Ryder), some framing survives in east wall. The
hall has a king-post roof with raking struts and tie-beams are braced to
posts. The central tie-beam has been cut out to increase headroom probably
when the hall was floored in C17 or early CI8.
