2/115 The Beals - GV II Detached house. C17 possibly incorporating earlier work. Roughcast cob, stone footings, with some brick patching; gabled-end slate roof; the long rear wing with slate and corrugated iron gabled-end roof. Single-depth house with integral rear outshut; the through-passage lies between the 2 main rooms, which are of unequal length, and heated by rear stacks, one external, both with brick shafts. It is possible that this was a C17 modification of an earlier 3-room, through-passage plan house. Rear range, which functioned as a school in the mid C19; is heated by 2 axial stacks. 2 storeys. Front: irregular 2 window range; to the left of the half-glazed and panelled door, is an early (i.e. circa 1800) 4:12:4 pane hornless tripartite sash window to each floor. To the right, the ground floor room and the chamber above are lit by exceptionally long windows of equal length, each with a single massive lintel; the 1st floor window embrasure contains two 3-light casements flanking a blocked light; the ground floor window contains 8 lights each of 2 panes. It has been plausibly argued that these rooms may have been textile workshops. Rear wing: pointed arched doorway and two 3-light casement windows, some with C19 leading to each floor of that part of the wing used as a school; other plain openings to the remainder. Interior: right-hand room with 3 cross ceiling beams, chamfered, the stops with bar and notch, left-hand room with axial ceiling beam with cyma recta moulded chamfer. Some C17 panelled doors with HL hinges survive. Roof: not inspected: A-frame principals, collars and wall plate all pegged, sit on studding which constitutes the walling material above the level of the window lintels, (information from occupier).
