GV II

Farmhouse. C15 and mid C16. Timber-framed and rendered; fully hipped
thatched roof with decorated ridge. One storey and attics; 3-cell plan,
originally with an open hall, now with lobby-entrance. The internal chimney-
stack has a plain rectangular shaft. 2 2-light small-paned C20 casement
windows; plank door in plain surround. Framing exposed inside. To left of
stack, a mid C16 parlour block with good close-studding; double roll-moulding
and leaf stops with bar to ground floor ceiling beam, joists with a single
shallow roll; matching leaf stops and double roll-moulding to fireplace
lintel. The tops of the main posts also carved with large single leaves. The
2-bay hall area has been much altered: tie-beams have been cut to allow
upstairs access, and the former open truss has an arch-braced collar form
which seems secondary. A smoke-bay may have preceded the chimney-stack at the
upper end of the hall. The main beam of the inserted ceiling has a 6" chamfer
and curved stops, the joists heavy and plain. The timbers of the service end
partition remain, the 2 doorways with very shallow 4-centred arched heads;
plain, rought joists to the former service rooms.
