6/21 Overshot Mill House
House. Early C17, altered in C18 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed
with handmade red plain tiles. Rectangular plan facing SE with 2 external rear
stacks. C20 flat-roofed extension to right, extending to rear. C20 flat-roofed
single-storey extensions in rear angle and to front of it. 2 storeys. On each
floor, 2 C20 casements and one C18 2-light window with wrought iron casement.
6-panel door, the top 2 panels glazed, in C19 trellised porch of geometrical
design with flat roof. Hipped roof. Shaped sprockets below eaves. Jowled
posts. In entrance hall, chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops, and
plain joists of horizontal section. Elsewhere, joists plastered to the soffits.
The walls have been raised approx. 1.5 metres in the C18. Colne Engaine, the
Story of an Essex Parish, 1975, 9, states that this house and Overshot Mill
(item 6/22, q.v.) date from 1640, on the evidence of deeds; but the physical
evidence, particularly of the joists, indicates an earlier origin, possibly with
alterations in 1640.
