1/188 Moneyfields 24.6.83

- II

House. C16 origin, much altered in late C17, with C19 and C20 additions. Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched. 2-bay hall facing SE with stack in right bay against front wall, storeyed parlour/solar bay to left, originally unstoreyed service bay to right. One-bay extension to right, C18/C19. Rear extension, 1973, forming a T-plan. One storey with attics. 4 C20 casements, 2 more in swept dormers, C20 door, grouped diagonal shafts. The large wood-burning hearth facing to left is of late C16 construction with a blocked aperture for a former bread oven in the front. The partition wall facing it is of similar date, with one large curved brace trenched into heavy studs. The original lodged floor in the left bay consists of longitudinal plain joists of horizontal section with a trimmed stair trap, blocked. Other features of the construction are substantially later in type - unjowled posts, simple corner jointing, straight rising braces from the corner posts, suggesting major alterations in the late C17. The inserted floor to left of the stack consists of a chamfered transverse beam, longitudinal joists (plastered to the soffits) supported on pegged clamps, rebated floorboards. The inserted floor to right of the stack consists of a chamfered axial beam and plain joists of vertical section, fitted in wider mortices. All internal tiebeams present, one severed. Unsooted coupled rafter roof. This is not the house described as Moneyfields in RCHM 36 - see Tinkers Cross, Gosfield Road, item 1/146.
