4/163 Gatehouse Farmhouse 20.10.77 G.V. I

House. C1300 2 bay hall and 2 storey crosswing. Formerly jettied to east. Mixed clay tile roofs with gabled dormer. C20 casement windows. C16 red brick chimney stack, rebuilt at top. Crosswing was former service wing and retains crown post roof and 1 service door with oak 4 centred head. Some original sooted rafters to hall remain. Original first floor stair well and joists fitted by means of soffit tenons (introduced at Winchester Cathedral by Lyngwode A.D. 1307-9). Hall was spanned by a low tie beam mounting 2 Queen posts (which survive complete). These are hollow octagonal with water holding bases and capitals with half rolls and frontal fillets. Date of moulding by comparison (Forrester: Medieval Gothic Mouldings) between c1220-c1230 at St. Alban's Cathedral West Nave piers and c1250 at Navestock Church, Essex. S. arcade, also of timber. Origin of house probably monastic. Design of Queen post roof is without parallel for so early a date. RCHM 9
