Full Description

16th C two bay aisled house which was demolished in the late 20th C after falling into a state of decay. In the 17th C studding was added to turn the open truss into a gable end. The aisling was a simple construction of arcade posts linked by tie beams and the house also had a simple rafter roof with no purlins. This shows that aisling was not only used in houses of status (S1).
