9/107 Nos. 10 and 12


House, now 2 shops and houses. Late C14, extended in C16, altered in C19 and
C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Half-H
plan facing N, comprising 2-bay main range, 3-bay service crosswing to right,
2-bay parlour/solar crosswing to left. Internal stack in right of front bay of
right crosswing, external stack to left of rear bay of left crosswing. C16
2-bay extension to rear of right crosswing, C19 axial stack at the junction, and
C20 2-storey flat-roofed extension beyond. 2 storeys. No. 10, early C19
shopfront altered in C20, with 6 reeded pilasters with paterae, early C19 half-
glazed door, and blocked overlight with geometrical tracery. No. 12, C20
shopfront with central glazed door. First floor, 4 early C19 sashes of 16
lights. Wide passage through hall range, to right of centre. No. 10 comprises
the original cross-entry, the service crosswing, and extensions to the rear; no.
12 comprises the remainder. The right crosswing has an underbuilt jetty with
one plain bracket, plain joists of horizontal section jointed to the chamfered
binding beam with low-central tenons, and one of 2 service doorways with a
chamfered 4-centred arched head. In the rear wall is a blocked unglazed window
with 3 diamond mortices and a shutter groove. Crownpost roof with thick axial
braces and one of 2 thick down-braces to tiebeam. The rear extension has curved
braces trenched inside heavy studding, 2 bridging beams in each bay, and double-
ogee moulded joists of horizontal section. Roof inaccessible, but reported to
be original. In the main range the axial beam of the C16 inserted floor is
unchamfered near the right end, implying a former stack, elsewhere chamfered
with step stops. In the left bay the joists are exposed, of horizontal section
and chamfered with step stops, apparently with some original red paint. The
roof of the main range has been raised approximately 1.20 metres in the C17,
with a face-halved and bladed scarf in the upper front wallplate. Early C19
2-turn stair with turned newels and stick balusters. Display bracing of left
crosswing exposed in main range. The left crosswing has an underbuilt jetty
with a shutter groove in the jetty plate, joists similar to those of the right
crosswing, and a parlour doorway with plain head and mortice for draught screen.
Edge-halved and bridled scarf in right wallplate. Crownpost roof, unceiled,
with braces similar to those of the right crosswing but all present. The
collar-purlin has a splayed scarf with undersquinted butts, an unusual
combination with the wallplate scarf, indicating the progression from the former
to the latter type where more complex stresses required a stronger joint. RCHM
