2/61 Millstone House and
- two adjoining dwellings
- II
A terrace of 3 houses, built as one. Early C16 with alterations of c.1600 and
late C18. 2 storeys and attics. Originally of 3-cell plan. Timber framed
and plastered. Plaintiled roof. An axial C17 chimney of red brick, the upper
shaft rebuilt in C19; a second axial chimney of red brick added in C18. Mid
C20 casements apart from some late C19 or early C20 small-pane casements to
right. Various mid C20 entrance doors. Millstone House has good unmoulded
framing of c.1530-1560. Heavy chamfered main beams and posts and unchamfered
joists. Tension studbraced close-studding with blocked diamond mullioned
windows. C16 crownpost roof: a chamfered square crownpost with 2-way bracing
at one open truss. An altered open truss in the left-hand gable suggests the
house extended in this direction until c.1600. A restored brick-arched and
ovolo-moulded parlour fireplace, and a smaller arched fireplace at 1st storey,
both of c.1600. A small rear wing has reused mid C16 components: a long rib-
moulded mullioned window and roll-moulded ceiling joists; but the wing is an
addition of late C16 or C17 and probably housed a staircase. Circa 1600, the
major remodelling to right of the main chimney included the provision of a
large gable chimney, later rebuilt. A further cell was added to right in late
