7/34 The Poplars -

- II

House. Circa early C16 altered in C17 extended in C18 and C19. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Gable-ended slate roof, corrugated asbestos to rear wing. 3 brick stacks - 1 at each end and one axial. Plan: 2-room-and-through-passage plan. Hall to right heated by stack backing onto the passage but originally open to the roof with central hearth. Original form of lower room unclear - the fact that its roof truss is dark but not black suggest that it may originally have been open to the roof but was soon after ceiled or divided off from the hall. The hall stack and ceiling were probably inserted in the early C17 and a fireplace to the lower room followed. The shallow 2 storey porch may also date from the C17. In the C18 and C19 substantial rear wings were added. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of early - mid C20 2-light casements. Slightly projecting 2 storey gabled porch to left of centre with square doorway and slit window in either side wall. Early C20 part-glazed door benind. Interior: right-hand room has chamfered ceiling beam and open fireplace with replaced wooden lintel. Rough wooden lintel to fireplace in left-nand room. Several C18 2- panel doors survive on the 1st floor. Roof: over the hall a smoke-blackened truss survives consisting of substantial straight principals with threaded purlins and ridge, and cambered collar halved on with notch joint standing slightly proud of truss. Roof truss over left-hand room is darkened but not black, its morticed collar is missing and has been replaced by a simple lapped one and its purlins were trenched. Later roof structure has been built over tne original one.
