TL 7225-7325 PANFIELD SHALFORD ROAD (east side)

7/27 Little Timbers

- II

House. Late medieval, altered in C20. Timber framed, partly plastered with imitation framing, partly weatherboarded, partly shingled, roofed with interlocking concrete pantiles. 2-bay hall range facing S with axial stack near left end. 2-bay crosswing to right, breaking forwards from hall range, with internal stack at junction. Small C18/C19 extension to left, large C20 single-storey extension at rear. Large C20 porch on right return wall. One storey with attics. 3 C20 casements, and 2 more in flat-roofed dormers. Roof of shallow pitch, extending over C20 rear range. Grouped diagonal shafts on left stack. The external appearance is misleading, for the jetty of the crosswing has been underbuilt, and the roof and upper part of the building has been altered after a thatch fire of c.1953 to form one continuous range. The crosswing has a chamfered binding beam with broach stops, and plain joists of horizontal section. The hall range has close studding with fixing pegs for a former bench against the right wall, and a late C16 inserted floor with deeply chamfered axial beam and chamfered joists of horizontal section, all with lamb's tongue stops. The beam terminates a little short of the early C17 stack, supported on a corbel, implying that there was a timber framed chimney earlier. Left side and back of hearth partly rebricked. The short bay to the left of this stack has thin longitudinal joists. Most of the upper storey is plastered internally. RCHM 7.
