7.9.51 No.2 (Half Moon Cottage)


Farmhouse, now house. Probably a late C15 or early C16 hall-house, with ceiling
and chimney stack inserted in C17. Timber frame with brick casing at ground
floor and nogging above (some in herringbone pattern); red tile roof, brick
chimney stack. Linear 5-bay single-depth plan (the 1st bay perhaps an early
addition). Two low storeys and 5 structural bays but with only 3 windows at 1st
floor; the timber-framing at the front consists of all 6 wall-posts (concealed or
removed at ground floor), with arch-bracing to the wallplate in the 3rd, 4th, and
5th bays, and various studs; the 4th bay contains 2 board doors; at ground floor
the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th bays have 2-light casement windows (that in the 3rd bay
altered), and at 1st floor the 1st bay has a 2-light casement, the 2nd bay has
coupled 2-light casements (divided by a stud), and the 3rd bay has a 3-light
casement, all these windows being under the eaves. The roof is hipped at the
right-hand end, half-hipped at the left end, and has a ridge chimney stack in the
4th bay. The left end wall has inter alia a door at ground floor and 3 queen
struts to the half-hip. At the rear the timber framing is exposed on both floors,
less regular than the front, and includes 2 full-height wall-posts to the 2nd bay,
and various rails and studs; the 1st bay has a 3-light casement, the 2nd has a
very small 6-pane fixed window under the eaves, the 4th has a fixed window,
and the 5th is covered by a lean-to addition.
