House. Circa late C14-early C15, partly rebuilt C16 and altered in C17 and C18. Timber-framed with brick infill and partly rebuilt in English bond brick. Thatched roof with gabled and half-hipped ends, the right end has higher roof level. Brick axial stack and large battered C16/C17 gable-end stack. PLAN AND DEVELOPMENT: The Medieval house comprised an unheated inner room on left, an open hall with spere truss and through passage and with a service end on right. In the C16 the service end was rebuilt, the right of the two bays might have been open to the roof originally and used as the kitchen, its large gable-end stack added in circa late C16 or early C17; originally there was no internal access from the through passage to the C16 service end. In circa early C17 a floor was inserted into the open hall creating a chamber above with a dormer at the front and a stack built backing onto the through passage and spere truss. In the C18 the walls of the high end of the house were rebuilt in brick and the infill at the service end replaced in brick. In the C19 internal partitions were inserted creating axial passages.
EXTERIOR: 1 storey and attic, the right end with higher eaves. Asymmetrical 4-window south west front. C19 1,2 and 3-light casements with glazing bars, gabled dormer to left of centre with ogee bracket to cill. Plank door to right of centre. At rear small casements, plank door and small C20 boarded outshut.
INTERIOR: Inner room has two unchamfered axial beams with mortices for partitions. Hall as chamfered axial beams with hollow step stops and fireplace with similarly chamfered lintel. Room to right of passage has large closely-spaced unchamfered joists supported on low unchamfered bressumer. Smaller room on right has closely-spaced joists and partly blocked gable-end fireplace. Chambers ceiled but roof structure and trusses are exposed; roof-space accessible over passage. All four cruck-trusses at high end survive but with their feet cut off, the west end cruck blades cut off below collar. Type-W crucks with arch-braces to the collar, with infilled spandrels, forming 2-centred arches; the spere truss braces chamfered; the principals terminated just above the collar with purlins clasped between the top of the principal and the common rafter above; the common rafter couples are joined at the apex by small yokes supporting a square-set ridgepiece; the truss on the right [low side] of the passage was a closed partition, the sooted apex panel survives. The puffins, curved wind-braces, common rafters and some of the battens are intact and over the hall and passage the roof structure is heavily smoke-blackened. There is a narrow space between the passage partition and the rebuilt service end which is of box-flame construction with cambered tie-beams, collars, clasped purlins and curved wind-braces.
