Full Description

The Willows, No. 2 Lower Street, Doveridge, a late 16th century building. The building was subject to an historic fabric survey in 2012: 'The original house at The Willows consisted of a timber-frame single storey building with an attic. The building might have been of two bays as indicated by the timber-framed vestiges. This includes pegs connecting mid rails designating the proposed design. The timber-framed is created with small square panels which predominantly dates to the post medieval period dating from the later 16th or early 17th century. The surviving frames on the north and south walls contain brick nogging which appear to have been a later insertion replacing the original wattle-and-daub infill. Surviving primary wattle-and-daub infill was identified within an internal partition wall as well as within the easternmost panel of the south elevation. The principal posts are straight without jowls which normally provide extra strength to the tie-beam joint. Early jowls were usually plain; during the 16th and 17th centuries they were often decorated; and later, the jowls declined becoming plainer or absent in subsequent time. The brick type, and particularly its size, can be a tool for dating. The type used as nogging, replacing the original wattle-and-daub, is consistent with the bricks made during the mid to late 18th century, whereas the lower brickwork beneath the timber-framed of the south elevation dates after 1803 when a brick tax determined a standard size measuring 9” x 4½” x 3”.'
