Appraisal by M Higgins of SCC to determine the historic development of the building and its possible future use recorded a nine-bay, single-aisled barn constructed in four phases. The first phase is a four-bay threshing barn with an aisle, punctured by a midstrey (gabled) porch, a butt-purlin and rafter roof with inclined queen posts, is most likely of late 17th or early 18th century date. The second phase, of a similar construction, extended the barn by one bay to the east in the late 17th or early 18th century.

Building appraisal by M Higgins of SCC recorded a late 17th century, four-bay, two-storey timber-framed building with gables at each end, a multiple flue chimney in the third bay, a clasped side purlin roof and small square panel framing. Many of the timbers are reused.
Building appraisal by M Higgins of SCC recorded a three-bay house with a hip and gablet to the north and smoke-blackened timbers showing evidence of a pre-1540 open hall house. A clasped side purlin roof and high eaves suggest this may be a late example for the period and of possible Hampshire influence. Halvings in the roof space provide evidence for a smoke louvre. It is considered that it was either constructed as a ‘boot’ hall, with the middle bay undivided from the open hall bay, or a divided middle bay to allow a passageway between doors.
Appraisal by M Higgins of SCC of a T-shaped brick-built vicarage of two storeys and attics with five window bays to the front elevation. A special feature of the building is the pilasters applied to the front elevation and its left-hand flank. It has unusually long first-floor sash windows. Internally there is a very good collection of shutters to the windows and the original plan layout remains substantially unaltered. Manning and Bray (2, 340) thought it was built as a parsonage house by Harman Attwood who died in 1676.
Appraisal by M Higgins of SCC of an urban building within a tight plot. It was brick fronted with a studwork rear elevation over a brick ground floor. The building is of two storeys with a stone cellar and attics in a staggered butt-purlin, butt-rafter roof. The exterior has a fine Flemish Bond facade with blue headers. Number 42 has cruciform windows in the original openings; 44 has been remodelled but straight joints reveal its original format. Each has an end chimney stack and both date to the early 18th century over a probably earlier cellar.
Appraisal by M Higgins of SCC to inform Listed Building Consent proposals. Constructed in three main phases, the first phase is a 2½ bay, timber-framed, end smoke-bay house of suggested late 16th century date. A large timber-framed bay with a chimney was added to the south end in the late 17th century, possibly with an outshot on the west side. A third, 18th century phase saw a face wing with outshot added to the south-west possibly with masonry on the ground floor under a timber-framed first floor replacing the outshot of the previous phase.
Archaeological monitoring by N Randall of SCC during groundworks for a small extension. Excavations revealed extensive disturbance from modern services and the presence of a large, modern subterranean cistern but no finds or features of archaeological interest.
Historic building assessment by M Higgins of SCC of a 15th century Wealden hall house of four bays, including a single-bay open hall and cross entry, with a ceiling/first floor added in the 16th century. The open hall includes an internal jetty.
Historic building assessment by M Higgins of SCC of a five-bay hardwood timber-framed and weather-boarded building of one-and-a-half storeys. Almost certainly a three-bay stable with hayloft over and flanking cart sheds with lofts and probably dating from the late 18th century. To the west is a single-storey face wing of unknown but probable 20th century date.
Historic building assessment by M Higgins of SCC of a timber-framed open-hall house of four bays. Of a standard tripartite plan of a parlour, two-bay hall and service bay, it includes an ‘upper-end’ end-jetty, long passing braces, ground floor braces and evidence of a dais spere – a short screen, normally by a door, to prevent draughts. To this a further bay was added at the ‘lower’, downhill end. The house probably dates from the second quarter of the 1400s. The added bay is probably 17th century in date.
