9/42 Nos. 29 and 31 31.10.66 (formerly listed as Nos. 29/31 (Red House))


House, now 2 flats. C17 or earlier, altered in C18 and C19. Timber framed and plastered, with facade of red brick in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main range facing SE with 3 adjacent short wings to rear, forming a rectangular plan. The middle wing is of narrower span than the others. One axial stack in left wing and one in middle wing; C20 external stack to right of right wing. C18/early C19 single-storey extension to right of main range, with flat roof. C19 extension of red brick to rear of left wing, its axis at right angles to that of the wing. C19 single-storey lean-to extension with slate roof to rear of the other wings. 2 storeys. Ground floor, 6 C18/early C19 sashes of 2+4 lights, each with a segmental head and arch of gauged brick. First floor, 5 similar sashes, and one blank recess above door. Off-centre half-glazed door in doorcase with panelled jambs and soffit, eared and moulded architrave, projecting false keystones and moulded pediment on scrolled brackets; 2 stone steps with 2 cast iron bootscrapers. Plain band at first-floor level, returning to right on extension. The brick facade extends across the small extension to the right, apparently unjointed, and has tuck pointing of high quality which in places disregards the original coursing. Moulded eaves cornice. Late C19 false framing on right return and rear gables. Late C19 moulded and indented bargeboards on right gable. 2 early C19 sashes of 12 lights on first floor of rear elevation. Deeply chamfered axial beam exposed over entrance-hall, boxed in both adjacent rooms, not extending to right room. Folding shutters present in 2 ground-floor front rooms, missing from the third. 4-panel internal doors, one with lincrusta in panels. Walls lined with plain softwood boarding, and partly with canvas, a rare survival. Early C19 quarter-turn stair with wreathed and moulded handrail, stick balusters (some replaced) and scrolled tread-ends. One Art Nouveau grate on first floor; late C19 cast iron grate on first floor of rear extension. Smoke-blackened rafters, pegged at the apices, over the narrow rear wing; no access to other roofs. The frame is mainly concealed by C18 and C19 finishes.

Images of England

Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
