TM 13 SE (north side)
1/114 Wrabness Hall

House. Late medieval and C16, altered in early C19. Timber framed, clad with
red brick in Flemish bond (partly painted), plaster and weatherboarding, roofed
with slate. Main range facing SW, with 2 axial stacks, and C16 2-bay crosswing
at left end, with internal stack at left side. Weatherboarded extension to rear
of the junction (possibly a stair tower originally), and C19 brick extension to
left of it. Single-storey lean-to in left rear angle. External stack at right
end, and single-storey lean-to beyond it. C18/19 dairy to rear of right end,
roofed with red clay 'Roman' tiles. 2 storeys. 4-window range of late C19
sashes of 4 lights, with flat arches of gauged brick. 6-panel door, the top 2
panels glazed, in Tuscan portico, and one C20 plain door to right of it.
Low-pitched roofs with long overhanging eaves. The right half of the front
elevation is set back. Both roofs are of shallow pitch, aligned NW-SE,
disregarding the original alignment of the crosswing. The left return and small
parts of the rear elevation are plastered, the remainder faced with brick. The
main range has widely-spaced studs in the rear elevation, exposed internally,
but replaced with brick in the front elevation, and the walls have been raised
approx. 1.50 metres. The left part of it has a chamfered transverse beam with
lamb's tongue stops, and plain joists of vertical section. The right axial
stack has 2 wide wood-burning hearths, one of which has a wrought iron crane and
trammel, 2 brewing pans and a wash-boiler. In the lean-to at the right end is a
large bread oven. The crosswing has jowled posts, close studding, curved braces
trenched to the outside, moulded tiebeams and moulded bridging beams above the
first floor. Other beams boxed in, but some are likely to be moulded also. A
timber with a carved date is reported to be present in the roof. Early C19
stair with stick balusters, and folding shutters in the ground floor room each
side of the stair hall. RCHM 2.
