10/260 Ancillary building 5
metres south-east of
Bridgefoot Farmhouse


Manorial court-house, now a domestic ancillary room. Circa 1500, altered in
C20. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with corrugated asbestos. 4 bays
aligned NW-SE, connected to Bridgefoot Farmhouse (item 10/25 9, q.v.) by C20
single-storey extension with flat roof. 2 storeys. C20 casements and doors.
Jowled posts morticed and ledged for binding beams,_chamfered arched braces to
tiebeams, crownpost roof with near-straight axial braces. The tiebeam one bay
from the SE end is steeply cambered, implying that originally this was the more
important end, the front of the court. The scarf joints in the wallplates are
of a rare type, also recorded at a similar type of building, nos. 174-84, Church
Street, Bocking (see measured drawings by B.A. Watkin deposited in Essex Record
Office and N.M.R.). Walls and roof boarded internally, concealing the studding
and all original apertures. Originally floored throughout, only one binding
beam survives of the floor structure; it is deeply chamfered with step stops,
morticed for joists with unrefined soffit tenons, and has been moved from the
middle truss to the truss next to the NW end. C20 gallery at SE end, C20 dais
at SE end.
