ALPHAMSTONE MOAT LANE TL 83 NE (east side) 2/19 Little Fairing GV II House. Early C16, extended in C18/19. Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched. 4 bays facing W, consisting of 2-bay hall with axial stack inserted in left bay c.1600, parlour/solar bay to right, service bay to left. C18/19 single- storey extension to left. C19 external stack on right return wall. One storey and attics. 4 C20 casements and 2 more in gabled dormers, all diamond leaded, C19 plain boarded door. Old lime plaster with sawtooth indentations on front and right return wall. Roof hipped at left end, half-hipped at right end. Original sprockets under eaves. In right return wall, one C19 horizontally sliding sash of 3 lights. The interior has heavy studding with curved braces trenched to the inside, large wood-burning hearth. In the hall there is an inserted floor, c.1600, consisting of a chamfered axial beam with unusual treble-convex stops, and exposed plain joists of horizontal section supported on pegged clamps. The parlour/solar bay was floored from the outset, but the floor has been rebuilt in the C17 with a chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops and exposed joists of vertical section supported on pegged clamps, approx. 0.60 metre above its original position. The floor in the service bay is C19/20. Diamond mortises for unglazed windows below the half-hip at right end. The rafters have trenches for high collars, removed, smoke-blackened above the hall. The site slopes steeply from S to N; the rising ground and floor levels at the right end account for the rebuilding of the floor at the higher level.
