9/247 Ancillary building 25
metres west of Church
Ancillary building of uncertain purpose, probably stables, now a garage and
store. Early C16. Timber framed, weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red
plain tiles. 4 bays aligned NW-SE, with 2 aisles. Lean-to extension at NW end,
roofed with red clay pantiles. One storey. Jowled arcade posts and wallposts,
heavy studding, wide arched braces to arcade-plates and tiebeams. Slightly
splayed and bridled scarfs in arcade-plates. Original transverse partitions.
Crownpost roof with wide axial bracing in the 2 NW bays, later thin axial
bracing in the 2 SE bays. This unusual building is too small to be a barn; the
high quality of timber and carpentry indicate a prestige use, probably stables
for riding horses. Purpose-built stables for the Crown are recorded from the
late C13 (H.M. Colvin, The King's Works, 1963, I, 919). This manor was held by
the Abbot of Westminster (P. Morant, The History and Antiquities of the County
of Essex, 1768, II, 150). The nearest equivalent in Essex is at Navestock Hall,
Navestock, a manor of the Bishop of St. Paul's. Measured drawings by Anne
Padfield will be deposited with Essex Record Office and the National Monuments
