Cottage, now a museum. Late C16, extended in C17. Timber framed, plastered,
roof thatched. 2 bays facing NW, with C17/C18 axial stack in right bay. C17
extension of one bay to right, slightly narrower in span than the original
building. One storey. 2 C20 casements with rectangular leading. Plain boarded
door. The interior has jowled posts in both parts, heavy studding, diamond
mortices for unglazed windows, evidence of an original partition, now removed,
between the 2 bays of the late C16 cottage. The original roof is hipped at the
left end, although this does not appear externally, and the rafters are smoke-
blackened in both original bays. Built as an almshouse under the will of
Serjeant Bendlowes, 1584 (S. Hyland, 'An Elizabethan Self-Made Man of Law, Essex
Countryside, March 1983, 22-4).
