15/149 Nos. 17 and 19


House, latterly house and shop, now shop. Reputedly C12, probably
C13 or C14, remodelled in early C19. Timber framed, of cruck construction;
refaced and eaves raised in rendered coursed rubble; slate roof. Former
hall house, probably of 3 or 4 framed bays. Integral brick and stone
end stack to left. 4-window front; first floor glazing bar sashes;
2 ground floor plate-glass C20 shop windows to left flanking 6 flush-
panelled door (top 4 panels glazed) with reeded architrave and mid-to-
late C19 gabled wooden porch; mid-to-late C19 shop front to right
consisting of 2 plate-glass shop windows flanking C20 glazed door
with rectangular overlight and panelled-pilastered surround supporting
fascia and cornice; boarded door to far right. Interior: former hall
house plan survives with left-hand door to former through-passage, and
surviving chamfered-lintel doorway to former service-end with basement
beneath; 2 surviving full cruck trusses, the large former open hall
truss visible on first floor with continuous chamfer to blade, arch-
braces and collar with V-struts above; Alcock apex-type E; much smoke
blackening. The former large later-inserted stack in the second bay
from the East was removed in the late 1970's, when the crucks were
'discovered'. Despite its unpromising exterior, this building is
Graded II* on account of its early and relatively complete structure.
