SX8571SE WOLBOROUGH STREET 1012-1/13/142 (South side) 22/03/83 No.49 Tudor House


House, probably formerly a wing of a larger house. Late C16, rendered and a shop front inserted C19. MATERIALS: painted render to the front, over cob and rubble; unpainted render and limestone rubble to the right return. Slate roof with 2 external rubblestone stacks to the right return, that toward the front is large and offset to the lower part, and a brick stack to the left. PLAN: right-angle plan, gable-end to street, with lateral stacks, that to right adjoining stair projection; rear wing truncated in C19, with cob walls exposed in yard. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; one-window range to gable. C19 two-light 3-pane casement window to the left of the first floor, C19 shop front below with fascia and cornice over a C20 door to the left and a window of 2 rows of 4 panes to the right. C19 casement windows to the right return. INTERIOR: ground floor bays are divided by moulded crossbeams; joists are stop-chamfered; a former open fire to the right-hand wall has exposed rough red sandstone voussoirs of a relieving arch and part of an oak lintel. To the left of the fire is a low semicircular arched rebated doorway with a pegged arched lintel to a stone newel staircase. In the rear wall is a similar doorcase with a door (possibly repositioned) of two wide planks, formerly hung from the left, now with C20 strap hinges to the right which leads to C19 rear room. The upper room of 3 bays has jointed crucks to the trusses, some exposed timber-framing with pegged vertical studs to the front gable; an oak lintel to a fireplace in the left-hand wall is supported by stone corbels, in the plaster below that to the right are faint traces of lozenge-pattern decoration. To the rear wall and at the top of the stairs are semicircular-arched doorways similar to those on the ground floor, that to the rear is not rebated. To the left of the stairs the wallplate has been cut away and a C19 2-storey bay inserted. Over the doors and the fireplace are plaster motifs of scrolls and formalised flowers and leaves; traces of an ornamental plaster frieze approx 10cm deep remains over the doors, it rises like a hoodmould over the rear door. An interesting late C16 house, with some good internal detail to the upper room which suggests that it was part of (and probably the chamber or parlour wing to) a greater house.
