9/215 No. 104


Part of house and shop, now a house. Circa 1500, altered in early C19 and C20.
Timber framed, with exposed original and inserted framing to front and part of
right return, remainder plastered; front pitch of roof slated, remainder of
handmade red plain tiles. Comprises approximately 1 1/2 bays of a hall facing S,
and service bay to left which originally incorporated a shop. C19 internal
stack at right end of truncated hall, and another at rear of service bay.
Full-length catslide extension to rear. One storey with attics. Ground floor,
2 C20 sashes of 16 lights. First floor, one early C19 sash of 16 lights, and
one C20. Central C19 flush 4-panel door in simple doorcase with shallow canopy;
one stone step. Immediately to left of it a blocked narrow doorway with
4-centred head is exposed, the original entrance to the shop; and to left of
this 2 pegholes indicate the former position of the shop window with arched
head, now replaced by a sash. The front pitch of the roof has been raised
approximately one metre in the early C19; the remainder is original. In the
right return the lower part is plastered; the end of an inserted axial beam is
exposed, supported on a short nailed cross-member, an original rafter couple of
the hall, and inserted studding at the truncated end of the hall. The front
door, and the rear door into the lean-to, remain on the line of the original
cross-entry at the left end of the hall. The studded wall to left of it has
jowled posts, and a pair of twin doorways into the service bay; one original
chamfered 4-centred doorhead remains; the other is a replica reported to have
been inserted c.1914. At right end of rear wall, a blocked unglazed window with
3 diamond mortices is exposed. The inserted floor in the hall, c.1600, has an
axial beam chamfered at each end, with lamb's tongue stops, the middle left
plain, implying that an earlier or contemporary stack was then present at the
unchamfered part; joists plastered to the soffits. C20 grate in C19 stack. In
the service bay the axial beam has been covered by a modern firring, chamfered
and stopped to imitate that in the hall; C19 plain joists. C19 coal-burning
hearth. The studding in the rear wall of the service bay has been removed,
leaving a triangular groove for wattle infill, interrupted for a central window.
Internal tiebeam severed for doorway. Front wallplate severed at post, replaced
by later studding to raised front pitch of roof. Crownpost roof remaining
elsewhere, with one axial brace at Left end of hall and 2 curved down-braces to
tiebeam, of which one is severed for the same doorway. Braces to collar-purlin
in service bay missing. Rebated hardwood floorboards. Not recorded in RCHM, so
the framing cannot have been stripped at that tine.
