House. Late C16/early C17 refronting and remodelling of late medieval house. MATERIALS: coursed limestone rubble with Ham Hill stone plinth and dressings; plain tile roof continuous with No.16 (qv) to the right, with a brick stack to right-of-centre. PLAN: once a 3-unit through-passage plan with central hall; the room to the right is now part of No.16. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; now 3-window range. All windows have label moulds, hollow-moulded stone mullions and C20 leaded lights. Similar small c1990 two-light window above plank door under c1990 stone lintel to right. INTERIOR: a beam to the right of the passage has traces of having been part of a plank-and-muntin screen. The room to the left (the former hall), has an open fireplace with a chamfered arched lintel, the stone jambs are also chamfered with a step and run-out stop, and a late C16 six-panel framed ceiling with elaborated moulded beams. The room to the far left, through a doorway with a simple Tudor-arch cut in the beam, has a roughly-shaped lateral beam. The stairs, probably C19, set to the rear of the fireplace, are in the position of the former late C16 stairs. On the first-floor, above the fireplace, to the right corner, is a fireplace with an early/mid C19 hob-grate. The central late medieval collar trusses are jointed crucks, with side pegs, a notch-in-apex to the ridge, and two scarf-jointed trenched purlins. The truss to left-of-centre is closed below the collar with wattle-and-daub; it has smoke blackening above. The party-wall to the left, has the tie-beam carrying the principal members; the portion above the tie beam is filled in with wattle-and-daub, also visible from No.20 (qv). HISTORY: The original house had an open hall. Later in the C16 the fireplace, stack, framed ceiling, and floor were inserted. During the late C18 the north walls were raised, and the south wall possibly rebuilt, and a new, higher roof installed.
