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

The following building shall be added to the list:-


41/10004 Danceys


House, partly of non-domestic form originally. C16 3-bay main range and cross-wing with later additions and alterations.

Timber-framed, rendered, with brick plinth. Plain tile roofs. 3- bay central lobby-entry range facing garden with added end stack.

Stair tower to rear flanked by two-storey extension to left and single-storey extension to right. 5-bay cross-wing under hipped roof with central stack runs back from road at left, forming L- plan. This has a C20 extension attached to left. Two storeys throughout. Garden front: 3-bay range has two canted bays under tile roofs. An open porch, integral with the right hand bay, contains a 4-panel door. 2-light casement to left. C20 3-light casements to first floor. The end wall of the cross range has a 3-light C18 leaded casement to the ground floor and a C20 3-light casement above. Street front: 3-bay range, C20 casements throughout, 4-panel door in lean-to porch. Cross-wing flank wall has 3 C18 3-light casements and one C20 casement. Interior: The only framing exposed in the 3-bay range is a pair of longitudinal beams with tongue and jewel stops. They bear onto the inglenook which has chamfered jambs, a chamfered cambered mantelbeam and salt niches. Cross Range: Its unusual plan is not domestic in form. The wide bay nearest the street is an addition. The remainder is divided into 4 unequal bays, two narrow bays to the front and 2 wider bays to the rear. The stack in the second narrow bay is inserted. Everything above wall plate level, including the tie beams, has been removed by C18 heightening.

Some lightly smoke-blackened rafters are incorporated in the roof. Ground floor: The two rear bays form a single fine room.

The central posts are hollow-chamfered. Wide-chamfered beam; centre-tenoned joists with housed soffits, stencilled with Tudor roses. Shutter groove to end wall with central peg. The two narrow bays were subdivided by stud partitions. To first floor posts 2 and 4 (of the 4-bay section) are chamfered with asymmetrical stops at feet).
