39 High Street Haslingfield

39 The High Street, The Maltings, Haslingfield

History of The Maltings

Listed building:

House. Late C15 or early C16. Timber-framed, part exposed but mainly rendered with roughcast. Cement tiled roofs hipped to rear of crosswing, and late C17 or early C18 ridge stack. Plan of open-hall with parlour crosswing and floor and stack inserted in C17.

Smoke blackening of the roof rafters suggests an open hall plan. The boxed jetty beam on the original bracket is attractive. The house was thatched until 1970 when a spark from a passing traction engine set fire to the roof. In the barn is a flint grain pit, possibly showing signs of brewing.
