Listing Text

TL 26 SE

No. 6

(Formerly listed as No.6 (premises of Messrs Freeman))


Shop and house, with the side frontage on Double Street. C16 and early C17
with mid C19 alterations. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and roughcast-
rendered. The structure falls into 2 distinct sections. The front range,
which contains the shop, has had the front slope of its roof raised at a
shallower pitch and slated; overhanging eaves. A small-paned sash window in
flush frame to the attic and first floors, and large-paned shop windows to
Church Street and Double Street, the fascias supported by carved console
brackets; entrance door set at an angle on the corner. On the ground floor,
an early C16 2-bay ceiling with heavy ogee-moulded cross-beams: the principal
transverse beam supported by small solid moulded brackets. The remainder of
this section has been Victorianised. The early C17 Double Street range has a
basic 3-cell lobby-entrance plan: plaintiled roof; an internal chimney-stack
with a plain red brick shaft; various C20 casement windows. Inside, main
posts and ceilings exposed on ground floor: joists set flat, chamfered main
beams. One original partition wall has been removed, making a long 2-bay room
on the ground floor, but the room above, although now divided up, apparently
had no partition at first. The ceiling is plastered, with formalised Tudor
roses spaced round the edges, and 4 small panels with raised semi-circular
patterns in the centre. Decorative plasterwork is a rarity in Framlingham.
Roof with diminished principals, one row of clasped purlins with windbraces,
and one row of unstepped butt purlins.
