House. Late C15, open hall house, floor inserted in C16, reduced to 2
bays and brick cased in C18. N end added c.1968. Timber frame cased in
red brick with steep old red tile roof. A 2-storeys 2 windows house
facing W with hipped glazed central porch. 3-light leaded casement
windows. Single storey brick and tile extension beyond external N gable
chimney. The building represents half of a 4-bays medieval hall house
formerly extending to N. The bay remaining was the upper end bay of the
hall and has the timbered partition with mortices for the pegs
supporting the bench. Former open truss in roofspace has an
arched-braced collar beam (not a cruck as noted by Pevsner(1977)107).
Inserted floor in hall has elaborately moulded beam and chamfered joists
with 3-sided stepped stops. Off-centre placing of beam in front of
chimney points to an earlier wooden chimney replaced by the present C18
one. Jowled posts and straight braces in S gable with shutter groove
under S end tie-beam and central post. Stair trap in SE corner.
Carpenter marks on flat joists. Clasped-purlin roof structure. Cast iron
