Details

HOLCOMBE ROGUS FORE STREET, Holcombe Rogus ST 01 NE 5/111 Russels - GV II House incorporating part of former maltings. C16 or C17, much altered in the mid or late C19. Plastered stone rubble maybe with cob; the former maltings include some brick; stone rubble stack topped with C19 brick; slate roof, once thatch. Plan: the main block fronts onto the street to the south-west. It contains one large unheated room with a passage through the left end back to the stair turret which projects to rear. Formerly there were 2 rooms in the main block. Rear block projects at right angles to rear of the right end and rear of the left end a former malthouse has been converted to domestic use. Later alterations have combined to obscure the original layout but the main block is C16 or C17. It is apparently unheated and therefore may not originally have been a domestic house. The C16 or C17 house was probably larger and included Hurleys (q.v) adjoining to the left. House is 2 storeys. Exterior: regular 2-window front of ground floor 20-pane sashes and first floor 16- pane sashes. A third ground floor window is blocking the pre C19 doorway. Present doorway at the left end has a stucco architrave with a moulded entablature on scroll consoles. It contains a C20 door. Roof is gable-ended to right and to left it runs continous with the roof of the adjoining cottage. Interior: the beams in the main ground floor room show that there was once a through-passage from the blocked front doorway. Each former room crossbeam has deep soffit-chamfers with double step stops. The roof of the main block is carried on a series of clean side-pegged jointed cruck trusses. The other carpentry detail is plain. The joinery is C19 and C20. Russels is one of a group of attractive listed buildings in the centre of Holcombe Rogus village.
