Description

This information is taken from the statutory List as it was in 2001 and may not be up to date.

BUCKDEN CHURCH STREET TL 1867 (SOUTH SIDE) 5/11 No. 15A (THE MANOR HOUSE) 24.10.51 No. 19 (THREE WILLOWS) AND Nos. 15 AND 17 (FORMERLY LISTED AS THE MANOR HOUSE) GV II*

The original late C15 building runs parallel to the street and was possibly a guildhall, or similar public building. The original room divisions indicate that there were two upper halls; the ground floor is divided into four units with wide original openings suggesting windows on the south-facing, jettied side. The roof has plain crown-posts with braced collars, and splayed edge-halved scarf joints to the wall plates. In the early C17 the building was converted into the kitchen wing of the manor house and a timber-framed and plastered range with two gabled stair-turrets was added at right angles to south side. To the east a timber-framed barn was built with a cartway leading into the courtyard. Further harn additions were made in C18 and C19. The whole house and barn has recently been converted to four separate dwellings. Street facade of original barn to east side, and guildhall to west side. Two storeys. (leather boarded, and modern brick, plastered timber-frame and painted C18 red brick with band between the floors. Plain tile roofs. Three C20 chimney stacks; one late C16 octagonal-shafted stack with moulded brick cap, and one large stack with grouped diagonal shafts. Three oak doors and double doorway to cartway. Nine first floor windows include three horizontal sliding sashes, and three ground floor windows include one C19 hung sash window with glazing bars, and other small single light windows. Interior shows clearly the structure of the early building in exposed roof, wall frames and floor frames. Very fine C17 oak panelling and chimney pieces to two rooms in C17 range with some restoration; large inglenook hearths; dog-leg, closed string oak staircase with turned balusters.
