SJ4912SW WYLE COP 653-1/15/742 (North side (off)) 19/09/72 Building to rear of Nag's Head Public House (Formerly Listed as: WYLE COP Timber-framed building adjoining the Nag's Head Inn)

GV II

House, now remains. c1400. Timber-framed with plain tiled roof. 2 storeys, what survives comprises screens passage and spere truss wall with room beyond the passage probably a later phase of construction, in gabled range running at right angles to rear wing of Nag's Head public house (qv). Front elevation comprises 3 bays of framing, a wide central bay flanked by narrower outer bays. Ground floor consists of 3 arches, the outer arches having ogee heads, simple chamfered arch to centre. These outer arches may have been modified to form doorways, as there are seatings for additional horizontal rails. Billet moulding on tie beam over, partly renewed. Above this, the outer bays are framed in square panels with quatrefoil and trefoil decoration. Simple struts in central section. Queen post and collar truss in gable with cusped braces. Collar purlin supports overhanging gabled roof carried on cusped brackets. Framing of side wall also incorporates possible doorway at first-floor level, with chamfered braces forming lintel. INTERIOR: flame-like carving to arched doorway in inner partition parallel with side wall. Approx 1m behind this wall, a second wall is framed in square panels and has cambered tie beam with close studding over. Inner roof truss has cambered tie beam and collar with short crown post with cusped bracing. The building is abutted by rear range of Nag's Head public house, but is a separate structure and probably the earlier of the two. This is only a fragment of a formerly larger dwelling, and some of the timbers in its present front wall are trenched for other members now missing. What survives is the screens passage of a former hall, demolished in c1967 and removed to the Avoncroft Museum of Buildings.
