Thatched Cottage, North Warnborough

This building dates to 1444. It has a clasped purlin roof and is fully wind-braced. It stands only 18 feet 6 inches high at the ridge and covers only 630 square feet. It is fairly typical of a class of small, late-medieval peasant houses which survives in Hampshire. The hall was not partitioned from the service bay below tie beam level but a screen, set about 3 feet 3 inches within the service bay, seems to have performed this function. This screen extends upwards to the roof apex and is sooted where it faces the hall. The screen is not related to principal rafters or posts but, never-the-less, seems to mark the end of the original open hall. See Individual Case Studies (Roberts 1997, VA 28, 119) (Miles and Worthington 1997, VA 28, list 85)
