2/80 Rose Hall
- II

Former farmhouse. Late C15 with C16 and C17 alterations. One storey and
attics. 3-cell cross-entry plan. Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled
roof with 4 gabled dormers having late C20 small-pane casements. Late C16
chimney of buff brick, plastered and with a rebuilt shaft of C20 red brick.
Mid C20 small-pane casements. Doorway at cross-entry; early C19 architrave
and moulded cornice, late C20 panelled door. A typical open-hall house of
c.1500: the hall has lost its open truss and most of the roof, but sections of
the crownpost system remain at either end. A pair of complete service room
doorways with chamfered 4-centred heads. Studding with both arch and tension
braces. Part of the rear hall window is now glazed, with diamond mullions.
Heavy unchamfered floor joists over the service cell. In early C16, a lower
extension (probably a bakehouse) was added to left, with archbraced close-
studding and plain crownpost roof. In late C16 a 1st floor with broach-stop
chamfered beams was inserted into the hall. A wide lintelled open fireplace
in the hall is of late C16/early C17. The parlour cell was almost entirely
rebuilt in early C17: arched fireplace and on-edge floor joists.
