Reasons for Designation

27 Chequers Lane is removed from the list, for the following principal reasons: * This modest house, probably dating from the early C19, has suffered from a considerable degree of loss and alteration in the C20 and C21. It retains little of its original fabric except sections of the stone walls. * It has been substantially extended in recent years, further detracting from its external appearance. * There are no features of special interest in the interior.

654/7/152 CHEQUERS LANE 02-AUG-72 (North side) No. 29


House, late C17.

MATERIALS: Regular coursed limestone with a plain tile roof.

PLAN: 2-unit plan with a cross passage.

EXTERIOR: The house is two storeys high with an attic. The south front has four windows on the ground floor, two on the upper floor, and a central C21 porch and door. The windows have modern casements with glazing bars in original openings with old wood lintels. The roof has C20 plain tiles, a recessed dormer, ashlar gable parapets, and brick and stone stacks at the ends. The east gable has three casements with glazing bars under old wood lintels. There is a single-storey C20 extension to the rear.

INTERIOR: The room to the left of the cross passage has a large stone fireplace with a chamfered bressumer and a heavy chamfered axial beam with ceiling joists. To the right of the fireplace is a cupboard with a plank door and strap hinges, which may have housed a staircase. The right-hand room has a corner fireplace with a bressumer and later stone infill. There is a heavy chamfered axial beam with ceiling joists, and a corner winding staircase with two plank doors with strap hinges. On the first floor there are a number of chamfered transverse beams, some with stops. The roof is of butt-purlin type. The purlins and a principal rafter with collar beam are visible in the attic rooms.

HISTORY: No. 29 was built in the late C17 as a 2-unit plan farmhouse with a cross passage. On the 1885 and 1900 Ordnance Survey maps, it appears subdivided into two small cottages. These were converted back into a single residence in the C20.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION DECISION: 29 Chequers Lane is designated at grade II, for the following principal reasons: * It is a late C17 stone farmhouse, retaining a significant proportion of its original fabric. * There are a number of features of special interest in the interior including fireplaces, heavy chamfered bridging beams and plank doors.
