5/66 Manor Inn -


House. Circa 1500 with early C17 alterations and C19 additions. Stone rubble and cob walls, exposed at front on ground floor otherwise rendered. Hipped thatch roof. Brick axial stack; projecting rubble lateral stack at front, probably C20 rendered rear lateral stack and stone rubble stack at gable end of rear wing. Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan lower end to the left, with open hall which had central hearth. The form of the lower and higher ends is uncertain since their roofs have been replaced. The sequence of flooring over is not entirely clear but it may have taken place in stages - the hall finally being ceiled in the early C17 and a front lateral stack added. Probably at some stage in the C18 an outbuilding was added at each end. In the C19 a single storey rear wing was built behind the hall. C20 modernisation removed the hall side partition from the passage and subdivided the lower room. Outbuildings also converted. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front of late C20 small-paned 2-light casements. Lateral stack projects to left at centre with adjoining bread oven and lean-to porch beyond which has catslide roof extending over it and has C20 plank door. Another C20 plank door to right of centre. Lean-to set back from right-hand end and smaller one against left-hand end. Rear elevation has single storey wing projecting to left of centre with passage rear doorway to its right. Interior: hall fireplace has high wooden lintel with thin chamfer and straight cut stops. Narrowly spaced roughly chamfered thin beams. Inner room has smaller fireplace with convex-stop chamfered wooden lintel. 2 original side-pegged jointed cruck roof trusses survive and another of tore uncertain form at higher end of hall enclosed by partition. All smoke-blackened with diagonal ridge and threaded purlins. Truss at lower end of hall has a morticed cranked collar with studs morticed into its soffit for an early partition. C18 pegged roof over lower and higher end and an C18 or C19 roof has been placed over the original one to the hall.
