Plough Lane 22-24


The right hand wall of the open passage between Nos 23 and 24 has a timber framework with the remains of two archways. No 23 has a full timber frame although the roof has been renewed. The only visible woodwork in No 22 are the vertical studs on the party wall with No 23 which carry the remains of a painted decorative scheme attempting to replicate high class wooden panelling. Interpreting the visual evidence the three cottages could incorporate elements of a standard late medieval house with No 22 the location of the parlour, No 23 the hall and No 24 the service end. If correct the passageway was the original cross passage of the house and the two arches led to the pantry and buttery.These were demolished in the 19thC when the present No 24 was built.
