5/72 Church House, including outbuilding adjoining at east 20.2.67 II

House, formerly church house. Probably C16 in origin, C19 and C20 alterations. Whitewashed rendered cob and stone; asbestos slate roof (thatched until at least 1960, old list description), gabled at ends; projecting front lateral stack, now enclosed by later outshut, some evidence of left end stack (shaft truncated). Corrugated iron roof to adjoining outbuilding. Plan: Sited adjacent to the churchyard. The original plan is rather obscured by subseqent alterations but appears to have been one large heated room on the ground floor, now divided into 2, with a narrow unheated room at the right end (possibly the entrance). The left hand room could be a later addition. An outbuilding adjoins at the extreme left end, this is probably C19 in date. A small outshut encloses the base of the lateral stack, the prsent entrance is into a 1945 lean-to against the return of the outshut - the lean-to was added by the local wheelwright, Mr Ridd, whose family have lived in the house for 3 generations. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front to main range with C20 casements. C20 door to right of outshut which formerly gave access to the Post Office, present front door into half-glazed lean-to and outshut. C20 2-light casement windows. The rear elevation, overlooking the churchyard, has a mixture of C20 and C19 casements. The outbuilding adjoining at the left end of the range is weatherboarded at the left end (facing the street) with one first and one ground floor window with lapped glass and a plank door to the right. Interior: A massive hollow-chamfered step-stopped axial beam extends the length of the centre room (now divided). The fireplace is partly blocked but an early lintel and jambs may survive. The heated room retains a bench fixed to the rear wall and a late C19 China cupboard with glazed doors. Roof: Not inspected. Roof timbers said to be entirely renewed when the thatch was replaced (information from owner).
