Dene House

II

House incorporating to rear an earlier house standing gable to street. Mid C19 with
earlier part of C17 with early C18 and C20 alterations. C19 section: pale brown
brick with Welsh slate roof and end stacks. Two storeys, 3 bays. Central 4-panel
door with oblong fanlight in doorcase with panelled reveals and soffit. Sash
windows. C17 section: timber-framed with early C18 red brick outer walls on cobble
foundation. Pantile roof with ridge and north end chimneys. C20 dormers to east
side of roof. One storey and attic. Three-cell central lobby entry plan type of
C18 incorporating elements of the C17 single-aisled longhouse with cross passage and
low end originally in agricultural use. The west wall now contains two C19 sashes,
one with glazing bars and a modern door flanked by windows of c.1970.
Interior: large fireplace relating to early C18 rebuilding with blocked entrance
lobby to right. Longitudinal beam resting on bressummer. Parts of timber frame
visible including wall and arcade plates. The north room, open to the roof and
aisle, shows an intact freestanding post on a padstone and has a thick aisle-tie
linking it to the west outer wall. The tie beam runs across the room from it and
rests on a truncated post. Cobbled floor to low end.
Although much altered, the C17-early C18 section has importance as a shining example
of a house type prevalent in the village before the late C17 but otherwise rare in
this region. The C19 section is not of particular interest.
