723-1/12/67 (South side)
21/10/58 No.62


House now shop. c1400 and C19. Timber-framed and rendered,
peg-tiled roof. Rectangular plan. 2 storeys and attic. N front
elevation, gable, slightly asymmetrical, ground floor C19
symmetrical shop-front with bracketed hood, central door,
window each side, both with central vertical glazing bar.
Door, 2 upper glazed panels and 2 smaller lower panels with
moulded surrounds. On E side in passageway of adjacent South
Street, side wall timber-framed with 2-centred arched doorway,
approx central - considerable brick replacement of surrounding
stud and rail. First floor early C19 sash window with glazing
bars, 4x4 panes. Rear S elevation irregular with timber-framed
addition. Principal house roof runs E-W with a narrow
3-storeyed addition to E end which merges with No.60 (qv) over
the passageway beneath. C19 first-floor double casement window
with glazing bars, each casement 2x2 panes. Second storey, C19
2-light casement window with glazing bars, 2x2 panes, also
ground floor simple timber-framed and plastered lean-to.
INTERIOR considerably sub-divided and obscured but at upper
part of E partition wall with No.60 (qv) towards house front
is a post, braced both axially and transversely, also in same
wall, towards rear an octagonal post with capital and astragal
of early perpendicular profile. Although difficult to
interpret, the original presence of a hall is implied by the
surviving features. The octagonal post has probably been
moved, once serving as a central crown-post to an open hall
and the bracing may be that to an arcade plate of the hall, of
aisled form. No.60 is a large unit and has a very heavy brace
to the rear and probably is of the same period and build. Nos
62 & 60 probably represent a hall and cross-wing of c1400 with
South Street cut through the cross-wing side of the partition
walling. Although not so heavily built, No.64 (qv) may be the
second cross-wing of a H-plan hall house, possibly added
later. RCHM Central and SW Essex wrongly ascribes the passage
way to the site of the screens. Also in central block (No.62)
`original king post with moulded capital' no doubt the same
member as the decorated octagonal crown-post described. Later
reorganisation includes the insertion of a first floor and a
necessary gabled frontage with a window to the street which
may have been jettied. Nos 60, 62 & 64 form a group.
(RCHM: Central and SW Essex : Monument 8: 36).
