II

House. Early C17. Framed construction, the ground floor clad in brick; peg- tile roof; brick stack.

Plan: The 5-bay house faces south. 3 room lobby entrance plan, the 2 left hand (west) rooms heated by back-to-back fireplaces in an axial stack, parlour to the left (west), hall in the cnetre. The lower end, to the right (east) is divided between 2 unheated service rooms, probably buttery and pantry, and a stair cell with the stair rising against the rear wall. Although the existing partition between the 2 unheated service rooms is not original, the lower end of the house is unusually intact in plan and a good surviving example of an arrangement that has been altered in many lobby entrance houses in the district. C20 rear right wing at right angles. Left end outshut.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Roof hipped at the left end, half-hipped at the right end. 5 bays to the frame with a narrow bay to the stack. 1920s gabled framed porch to the lobby entrance with herringbone-laid brick nogging to the infill and a 1920s plank and cover strip door. 2- and 3-light C19 and C20 casement windows with diamond leaded panes.

Interior: Exposed ceiling beams to the ground floor rooms, the left hand room with an axial beam with runout stops, the hall cross beam with scroll stops. Open fireplaces, the hall fireplace with a chamfered lintel. Reused C17 panelling lines the stair. The wall framing includes wall posts with formed jowls and tension braces.

Roof: Tie beam, queen strut and clasped purlin roof.
