- II

Farmhouse. Early C16 and C17 (porch dated 1634) with C19 alterations and
mid-and late C20 partial rebuilding. Timber framed with red brick
nogging (mostly painted); partly rebuilt in painted brick. Plain tile
roof. Framing: C16 close studding (with middle rail to first floor) with
angle braces. C17 small square panels (3 from sole plate to wall plate) with
corner braces and tension braces. H-plan. Mostly C16; eastern cross-wing
rebuilt in C17. Two storeys. Hall range has jettied first floor with chamfered
bressumer and brackets with carved ornament. Left-hand cross wing has jettied
first floor with moulded bressumer and shaped brackets from which ribs run
down framing to ground. Jettied gable above has bressumer with quarter-round
moulding and stops. Gable end rendered. Large brick ridge stack off-centre
to right consisting of 4 truncated shafts with projecting ribs; left-hand cross
wing with external lateral brick stack to left and integral brick corner stack
at rear with two C19 shafts. South front: 3-window front; C19 and C20 two-,
3-and 4-light wooden and wooden-framed metal casements. Central windows and
left-hand ground-floor window with C16 moulded wooden cills and C19 surrounds.
Probably C16 nail-studded boarded door off-centre to right with strap hinges and
quarter-round moulded architrave. Moulded bressumer above with billet ornament
and bracket to right. 2-storey timber framed gabled porch dated 1634. Round-
arched entrance with pair of flanking hewn brackets supporting jettied first-
floor with billet-ornamented and dated bressumer to front. First-floor C20
window with carved head on block beneath and evidence of former moulded cill.
Interior of porch has chamfered joists with ogee stops. Lean-to timber framed
infill to right of porch with boarded door to front. Right-hand cross wing with
segmental-headed boarded door and C20 brick porch with half-glazed door. Gable
has exposed collar and tie-beam truss with queen struts and V-struts. Rear
of western cross wing and further wing to west have restored gables with
parallel diagonal struts. Interior: hall ceiling frame consisting of very
large intersecting chamfered beams with stepped stops; chamfered and stopped
joists. Blocked large fireplace with chamfered and stopped lintel. Probably
C16 wall painting (black on white) in ground-floor front room of left-hand cross
wing; 2 panels of foliage and grotesque motifs, painted across studs now protected
behind 2 pairs of doors. First floor not inspected. The small C15 circular
Jesse window referred to by Cranage and Pevsner is no longer in the house. Much
of the outside walling of the house has been rebuilt (late C20), especially to
the north and west. The C20 framing has not incorporated the mouldings or
ornamental details (e.g. the west bressumer of the porch) of the C16 and C17
work. At the time of survey (March 1986) the first-floor south wall of the hall
range was in the process of rebuilding. D.H.S. Cranage, An Architectural Account
