II

House. C15, with later alterations and extensions at rear. Timber-framed; roughcast exterior with applied mock timbering; plaintiled roof. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, cellar and attics: contains the 2 bays of an open hall. 2 window range: 2-light casement windows with a single bar to the 1st storey and small-paned sashes in flush cased frames on the ground storey. A 6-panel door in a wood doorcase with moulded architrave and pediment. INTERIOR: a small cellar below the rear extensions has one wall of large kidney flints, the rest brick lined. Good studding partly exposed inside. A fine crown-post roof, lightly smoke blackened, the crown post with a short octagonal shaft and moulded cap and base, braced 4 ways at the head. A second layer of rafters has been laid over the original roof. Slightly smoke-blackened plaster between the studs of the north wall at attic level. The crown-post stands on a heavily cambered tie beam, ogee moulded, with chamfered solid arched braces meeting at the centre with a short blocking piece. The end wall on the north has only the tie-beam and one surviving long arched brace; no evidence of original studding below the tie-beam, which suggests that the house was butted up against an earlier building. The chimney-stack was inserted at the upper end of the hall and serves both Nos 36 and 38 (qv), the latter formerly the cross-wing associated with the open hall, but now separately occupied. The open fireplace has a damaged timber lintel and the brickwork has the remains of original mortar. The inserted ceiling has heavy chamfered cross-beams and plain unchamfered joists set flat.
