ST4409 EAST STREET 876-1/7/69 (South side) 06/09/74 No.20 (Formerly Listed as: EAST STREET (South side) Nos.16-20 (Even))


House. Late C16 or early C17 with later alterations. MATERIALS: limestone rubble with zig-zag pantile roof and brick stacks to right gable and inside-left to the rear. PLAN: 2-unit plan with through-passage dividing small service room from hall/kitchen to right with stack backing onto passage and rear stair projection. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 3-window range. All windows are under wooden lintels and have wooden frames; some H-hinges survive. To the far left is a small C19 two-light casement; to inside-left is a studded oak door to the passage. Above, between the two, is a C20, four-light casement with a lintel extending beyond to either side, probably a former wall-plate. A similar window to far right has 3-light casement above it, and both floors to the centre have C20 two-light casements. The ends of 2 main rafters are exposed approx 1m below the eaves. INTERIOR: The upper beam of a former plank-and-muntin screen survives to the left, with traces of openings to the centre and end of the now open passage; the right-hand wall of the passage is the back of an open fireplace in the main room; at the end of it is a doorway under a rough Tudor-arch lintel with mortices to the right, possibly the end of a former plank-and-muntin screen, removed to insert the fireplace. The only remaining beam to the ground floor fronts the fireplace, which has an arched oak lintel; the soffit of the beam has been drilled, possibly fixing for a stud and wattle partition before the fireplace was inserted, or a re-used member. On the first floor are 2 jointed crucks between the bays, each supporting 2 trenched purlins, scarfed at the principals, and with notch-in-apex ridges. The party-wall with No.18 (qv), to the right, is post-and-truss filled with wattle-and-daub. The present stairs are to the rear of the passage.

Images of England

Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
