II

Early C18. Coursed rubble. Flush quoins. Symmetrical. 2½ storeys. Doorway has moulded architrave and pulvinated frieze. Castellated, evidently C19 porch. Each side is a large transom and mullioned window with a total of twelve lights and dripmould (the left-hand one with leading to upper lights). Above each is a 5-light window with dripmould. Above porch is a round-arched window, with keystone, impost mouldings and narrow mullion and transom. Stone eaves gutter. Five casement dormers with hipped roofs set in stone slab roof. Tall gable chimneys. Slightly lower 2-storey extension to right is dated "John and Mary/Roster(on(/1820". Beyond is still lower extension, probably of similar date. Both are similar in build to earlier house, but have tall square-mullioned windows of two and three lights (later C20 metal casements replacing mullions in hither extension and a metal balcony, also perhaps C20, fronting the upper window). Until 1884 the house was the White Hart Inn. Known as Higher House in distinction to Shoulder of Mutton PH (known as Lower House), with which it shared disorderly reputation c.1800.
