THORNFALCON CP ST22SE ASH
5/137 The Thatch
Farmhouse. Late medieval, ceiled C16, undergoing restorations and enlargement at time of survey (November 1984).
Rendered over rubble, half-hipped thatched roof, lateral brick stack rising from eaves south-east corner, rebuilt brick stack on stone base to left of cross passage. Plan: double ended open hall, ceiled, lower end rebuilt and possibly a byre, kitchen lean-to addition north front. One and a half storeys, lean-to addition left with catslide roof forming porch, 6-light window rising through eaves above entrance to through paassage, plank door, to left 2-light chamfered wooden mullioned windows of unusual section, plank door with light above in re-entrance angle to porch, lit by small glazed opening in facade. Left return fronting road, 2-bay with 3 early C19 leaded iron casements; right return now forming junction with C20 addition, not included. Bread oven projection to cross passage stack protrudes on south front. Interior: partially sighted. Timber framed partitions with wattle and daub infill partly rebuilt in brick to left of cross passage and between hall and inner room, both rising to roof, 2 peaked door frames to latter, 4-panel compartment ceiling to inner room, winder stair, stud and panel screen between through passage and hall with stairs behind. Said to contain evidence of cruck truss roof. The 2-light window on the north front is thought to have been originally 4-light and to pre-date the ceiling of the open hall in the C16. A very interesting little building now much modified by C20 addition. (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, January 1981).
