10/1 Bank Walk House II

House. Late C15 or early C16 timber-framed house enclosed in stone, early C17 with mid Cl8 and late C20 alterations. Large dressed stone irregularly coursed, stone slate roof. 2-storey front, single-storey rear. 3-room plan. Weathered plinth, 2-light flat-faced mullioned window of lst cell cuts into plinth; 1st floor blind. Doorway with tie-stone jambs has large original door lintel above with broad chamfer. To right of door is blocked window. 2nd cell has 3-light flat-faced mullioned window with slightly recessed mullions with 3-light double- chamfered mullioned window above to 1st floor. 3rd cell has 2-light chamfered mullioned window, 1st floor blind. Central stack to ridge and one to right gable. Rear has 2-light window to left of 2 storey gabled porch with cyma-moulded band and 2-light flat-faced mullioned window to porch chamber. Low outshut to right-hand end for C19 added cellar partly sunk in ground.

Interior: 2 bays retain posts on padstones with straightbraces to arcade-plate and tie-beam. 3rd cell has aisle open to roof. Post built into front wall indicates that it was fully timber-framed with a rear aisle originally. The only visible truss is a reused king-post truss with a new tie-beam but with convex curved principal rafters. The truss appears to have been moved to one side of its original position indicated by the halving for it on the arcade-plate. The roof, although reset at a shallower pitch, contains some of the original rafters which are -halved to receive collars. There is no ridge-tree. Though the remains of the timber-frame are fragmentary it is nevertheless an interesting and rare survival in this region.
