Strete Farm, North Warnborough

1448 (solar) and 1505 (hall)

 

The earliest part of this house is a two-bay cross wing dated to 1448. The undivided lower room has restricted headroom and may have been a storage or service area. The two-bay solar above is crossed by a graceful, arch-braced tiebeam which supports a crown-strut truss. The solar is jettied over the street and at the rear, and has a blocked doorway to a removed inner chamber. It was probably a cross wing to an open hall, which was replaced by a fine, jettied range floored with large, chamfered joists dated to 1505/6. This is an early date for the replacement of an open hall and suggests that the house was of some status. (Miles and Worthington 2002, VA 33, list 127).
