TL 41 SE SHEERING SHEERING MILL LANE 2/7 Mill House
House, C17, extended in C19 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 4 bays aligned NE-SW, aspect SE. Chimney stack at NW side, internal chimney stack at junction of 2 NE bays, external chimney stack at SW end. Extension to NW, C19/2O, forming a T plan and enclosing first stack mentioned above, with one additional axial chimney stack, and C20 jetty at end.
Flat roofed single-storey extension in N angle. 2 storeys. SE elevation, ground floor, one C20 casement window, one C20 window of 4 lights including 2 C17/18 wrought iron casements, 6 panel-door with top panels glazed under shallow hood, late C18/early C19, one tripartite double-hung sash window of 4, 12 and 4 lights, early C19. First floor, one C20 window composed of 3 C17/18 wrought iron casements, with hooked stay to left casement, semicircular friction stay to middle casement, no stay to right casement, and one C20 casement window.
Roof hipped at NE. Some framing exposed internally, much altered. Stop- chamfered beams. Clasped purlin roof with curved wind bracing, least altered in SW bay, much rebuilt elsewhere. 3-movement wrought iron cooking crane, C18, fixed to brickwork of hearth at centre of T plan. 3 other wrought iron casements, C17/18, on first floor in 5W and NE elevations. This house contains many introduced features - the crane, most of the wrought iron casements, which are fitted in C20 frames, some timber, some panelling - and many reproduction features - C20 iron casements and panelling - which confuse the historical evidence.
