Pendean Farmhouse from Midhurst, Sussex now at the Weald and Downlands Museum. This house is timber-framed and was built in the early 17th century. In contrast to medieval houses, it has no open hall. Instead, a brick chimney heats two of the ground floor rooms and one of the upper chambers. This revolutionary change in house planning took place in the mid 16th century. The house still has some medieval features, for example, unglazed windows.
