6/347 Little Old Hay 27.8.87 II

House. C16 or earlier in origin. 1989 extensions being added at time of survey. Framed construction, the right end tile-hung; peg-tile roof; stack with brick shaft. Rear elevation said to be brick, partly "English bond, some stretcher bond" (1987 list descirption). Concrete block extensions.

Plan: Details of plan unclear on survey as interior access unobtainable. The house may have originated as an open hall, either with an open hearth or a smoke bay. West facing. 3 bays, the middle bay narrow. This may have been a smoke bay or passage bay. It does not correspond exactly to the position of the chimney shaft, which is to left of centre. There are 2 doors with C17 frames on the front, one within the narrow bay, another alongside to the right: the house was presumably divided into 2 cottages in the C17. The ground floor plan may be 2- or 3-rooms wide, the 2 left hand rooms probably heated by back-to-back fireplaces in the axial stack, perhaps with an unheated service room at the right end.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Deep roof hipped and gabletted at the left end, half- hipped at the right end. Modern brick shaft to the axial stack. The exposed framing is of large scantling with curved tension braces above the mdidle rail and close-studding below, with evidence of former windows in the frame. Slightly asymmetrical 2-window front with 2 C19 plank doors toward the centre, each with Tudor arched frames with carved spandrels. 2 ground floor C19 or early C20 3-light timber casements with glazing bars; 2 first floor C18 or C19 12-pane sliding sashes. The left return has a roof dormer with a hipped roof and exposed framing.

Interior and Roof: Not inspected.

An internal inspection, including examination of the roof timbers would establish whether or not this is an open hall house and might necessitate revising the descirption and possibly the grade of this building.

1957 photographs of the building in the National Monuments Record show the front elevation weatherboarded.
