No 11 (Turn Close)
TM 2748 3/59 25.1.51.


Early C18. 2/3rds of ground floor at one time a shop front, now bricked
up and set back about 2 ft. 2 storey, plaster above and on left. 3
windows at 1st floor, sash with glazing bars and flush frames. Tiles.
Frontage to Turn Lane with the exception of a brick rusticated quoin an
arched sash now casement with glazing bars radial at head. At the back
the early C18 work is still effective in spite of a modern 1 storey wing
with mullion transom windows in place of original sashes, the result of
its use for some years as a Convent. The old walls are of Suffolk yellow
brick, red brick dressings carried right up as panels into the parapet
above and below the windows. Quoins are rusticated as in Turn Lane.
There is a moulded brick cornice, stone coped parapet, with sunk panels
over windows, now casements, with flat arches. 2 windows on return wing,
left. Fine 6-panel deep fielded door, wood case, fluted Doric pilasters,
triglyphs, 3 square lights in central metopes, mutular pediment. Interior:
good cove cornice with key fret and egg and dart moulded panel over stair,
some room panelling.

Nos 1 to 25 (odd) form a group.
