October 2011. Survey
Timber-framed. Early 17th-century house originally of lobby entrance type (J). Narrow former stack bay replaced by gable -end stack in 18th century which included building the gable-end. First floor deliberately left without a first floor leaving the end bay open to the roof. Fine jowled principal posts. Evidence of diamond mullion windows. Arched braces formerly to all tie beams. Very fine roof of clasped purlins with cambered collars. The principal rafters are not reduced in the normal manner to allow the purlins to be added. Instead, small sections are cut out to allow the purlins to be slotted in. See photos and plans.
Adjacent is a 19th-century low timber-framed building with open sides. It was probably a drying shed for timber. The building is going to be reduced in length.
