3/64 No.10, (Longville House) - II

House and museum. C15/early C16 core probably in 2 stages, with major remodelling in mid C19. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed core, largely rebuilt in C18 and C19 red brick. Elevation to Hawksmill Street: C18 red brick walling with band at 1st floor and a coved plastered eaves cornice. Plaintiled roof with C19 parapet gables and various chimneys of red brick. C19 gabled casement dormers. C19 casements, in C18 openings with flat arches of gauged brick. Mid C19 entrance doorway at side: an arched panelled door with gabled plaintiled porch cantilevered on large timber brackets. Two rooms in the front range have ceilings with exposed floor joists, in the hall the joists are roll-moulded and the bridging joist is also embattled in the early C16 manner, and in the end room the joists are unchamfered and very large in the mediaeval manner. A large rear wing in gault and red brick is a mid C19 rebuilding of an earlier range. The house was acquired by Edmund Bedingfield, clothier, in 1721. It was known at that time as the Woad House, apparently having been used for the dying of cloth for many years.
