INTERIOR: at the time of inspection, January 1989, No.1 was
undergoing major renovation, with the frame fully exposed
internally; No.2 was fully plastered internally. No.1
comprises (up to tie-beam level) the parlour/solar bay and
hall of the medieval house, the stack being in the shorter
right bay of the 2-bay hall. Jowled posts, heavy studding,
cambered tie-beam. In the rear wall of the left bay is a
framed original window, with 4 diamond mortices at top and
bottom. The floor of the left bay has been rebuilt in the C18,
with plain joists of vertical section. The right bay has an
inserted floor of the C17, with a chamfered axial beam and
plain joists of vertical section, of heavier quality than in
the left bay. The roof has been wholly rebuilt in the C18 in
gambrel form. The C16 stack has been altered in the C18, the
size of the hearth reduced with C18 bricks, but retaining the
original mantel beam, with another below it. No.2 is wholly
plastered internally, but is believed to comprise the service
bay of the medieval house, and has an extension of 1984 to
