BRENTWOOD

TQ5993 HIGH STREET
723-1/12/71 (South side)
29/05/75 Nos.110 AND 110A
(Formerly Listed as:
HIGH STREET
Nos.108, 110 AND 110A)

GV II

House now shop and restaurant; rooms and offices above. Early
C16, early C19 and C20. Timber-framed with early C19 plastered
facade continuing from No.108 (qv) with moulded cornice band.
2 storeys, behind parapet are 2 roofs, one parallel and one at
right angles to the street with stack between them, peg tile
and slate. Ground floor, two C19 shop fronts but considerably
altered in C20. No.110 nearest to original form. 2 window
range on first floor with horned sashes and glazing bars, both
windows 4x4 panes. Rear elevation considerably masked by 2
storey extensions to Hart Street, mainly C19 and C20 and not
of special interest and not included in this listing.
INTERIOR: No.110 is a 2 bay E cross-wing of an H-plan hall
house. Ground floor ceiling joist at right angles to street of
heavy scantling and probably originally jettied to street
(boxed in bressumer). Central storey post on E side, stud
mortices and wattle groove for half depth partition, turning
at right angles in rear bay defining a passage on W side to
back. Partition stopped short of rear wall for doorway from
passage to next bay. The system is appropriate for a medieval
shop to the front with rear `overshot' cross-passage. On first
floor a fragment of a brace from visible central storey post
rises to a tie-beam with 2-way crown post now sealed above
ceiling. Roof complete with end braced collar purlin, some
chamfer decoration on slightly cambered tie-beam. Soot
incrustation on the outer face of the W wall plate denotes the
original presence of an open hall on site of No.110A, now
completely rebuilt with roof of low pitch in softwood. The
roof of No.110 is remarkable similar to that of No.112 (qv)
but of slighter scantling. This, together with the
cross-passage partitioning and front shop shows it to be the
`low', service end of a medieval hall house, No.112 being the
`high' end cross-wing. Nos 108-114 even (qv) and No.120 (qv)
form a group.
