Dukes II 2.

The name 'Dukes' is recorded in a law court case dated 1499 concerning, presumably, this house which still bears the name. A timber-framed house built on a 'T' shaped plan with the main block extending north and south. A floor was inserted in the main block circa 1600. The south front, with 3 gables, has modern external features. The centre able is of the early C17 and the east gable is later. The west end has exposed timber-framing on a high brick plinth. 2 storeys. 3 window range on the south front, C20 casements. Roof tiled (old tiles), with a central rectangular chimney stack at the west end of the main block and 1 sloping-roofed dormer between the gables to the main block. The interior has exposed timber- framing, ceiling beams and joists. Central longitudinal main beams extend the full length of both the main block and cross wing.
