BRENTWOOD

TQ5993 HIGH STREET
723-1/12/72 (South side)
29/05/75 No.112

GV II

House now office. Early C16. Timber-framed and plastered,
peg-tiled roof. Rectangular plan with gable to street. 2
storey. N front elevation, ground floor C19 shop front with
canted window with glazing bars, 1x4,5x4,1x4 panes, shop door,
upper glazing with glazing bars, 2x4 panes and single lower
panel. First floor, C20 2-light casement window, top opening.
C19 plaster rendering is lined out as ashlar work. Stack
emerging from roof pitch seen behind facade on E side. Rear, S
elevation obscured except for weatherboarded gable end. E and
W sides obscured.
INTERIOR construction considerably covered but outer framing
exposed on first floor with central tie-beam showing 2 bay
system. One arched brace from storey post visible. Step
stopped chamfer on tie-beam. Above, crown post roof, central
2-way braced post has one brace surviving, other removed for
insertion of C18/19 stack. No decoration but stout
construction and elegant sweep to braces of the central and
gable crown post to collar purlin. (S gable brace missing,
only mortice remains). This cross-wing roof is similar to the
one at No.110 (qv) and together they constitute the original
end units of an H-plan hall house. The elegance of the roof
timbers and the internal ground floor plan of No.110 implies
that No.112 was the `high' end and the roof was visible over
the principal chamber of the early C16 house. Nos 108-114 even
(qv) and No.120 (qv) form a group.
