9/61 The General Wolfe


Probably originally a farmhouse; used as a public house until 1952. Now
private residence. Late C16/early C17 with later C17 wing to rear. Small
earlier core. Timber framed and plastered; roof of modern plaintiles. Cement
render and glazed black pantiles to rear wing. Half-H plan with flanking
cross-wings set forward; the left wing has been extended forward at a later
date. 2 storeys and attics. Various windows. C19 small-paned sash windows
to wings; early C20 tripartite sash window to ground floor of right wing; left
wing has large mid C20 showroom window. Casement windows to centre range,
with a good C18 or early C19 3-light window to the ground floor. C19 6-panel
door (the upper 2 panels glazed). C20 open lean-to across centre. Between
the hall and the parlour wing is an axial stack with 4 attached shafts
arranged as a cross. Interior somewhat altered, especially the left wing
which has been gutted on the ground floor. Unusually long parlour, the whole
of the ground floor of the right wing. Both hall and parlour have plain
joists. At the rear of the left wing a small section of framing at a lower
level than the main structure, presumably part of an earlier range. Roof over
central range has clasped purlins and cranked wind-bracing.
