2/135 Digger's Rest Public House - - II

Public house. Late C15 or early C16, with later alterations and extensions. Plastered cob on stone footings; gabled-end thatched roof. Formerly a 3-room through-passage plan house, with the higher end to the right of the passage. The hall was originally open to the roof and is heavily smoke blackened; the service end was probably of 2 storeys from the beginning. The inner room was floored before the hall into which it is jettied. Hall heated by external rear lateral stack; service end stack now axial due to the enlargement of the building to form a public bar; right-hand end stack heats inner room; brick shafts to all stacks. 2 storeys. Front: 3 window range; 2- and 3-light casements to ground floor windows, and a small C20 bay window to the inner room. C20 extensions to left-hand end and rear. Two 2-light half dormers to rear. Interior: plank and muntin screen between hall and inner room, the planks partially removed, the muntins chamfered with run out stops at about 2 ft above ground level to hall side. One chamfered door jamb survives to this screen. Inner room joists jettied about 12" into hall. Hall fireplace concealed. Roof: 3 jointed crucks, purlins trenched with large diagonal ridge-piece; the crucks come down to ground level. Hall sooted; truss between hall and inner room not visible from inspection hatch.
