Abstract:
A partial building assessment and documentary search were undertaken to support a proposed planning application for a kitchen/dining area extension. The house is of irregular plan, constructed in multiple phases and substantially altered. The building appears to have been "gentrified" and substantially enlarged in the 20th Century, and the name "Orchard Manor" derives from this period. The 17th Century core of the house represents the much altered remnants of a larger than average timber framed cottage or small yeoman's house of 1½ stories . To the south there is an early 18th Century brick wing of 2½ stories, rather awkwardly linked to the original block by a brick built intermediate structure, and it is possible that the south wing was originally an independent range. The southern bay of the original cottage has been partially rebuilt in brick. A timber-framed northern cross-wing was added possibly in the early-mid 19th C but the cartographic evidence seems rather contradictory. On the sole evidence of the historic mapping we cannot be certain when the wing was added (and even the most recent mapping shows the house plan inaccurately without the circular turret to the NE or the apsidal projection to the south). The nature of the traditional framing of the north wing suggests it is a very late example, and without intrusive examination it is not closely dateable.
