TL 5557 GREAT WILBRAHAM HIGH STREET
(South East Side)

No. 13
14/104
II


House, mid-late C17 with C18 and C19 additions and alterations.
Timber framed, roughcast and plaster rendered with left hand
gable end wall rebuilt in white brick and rear wall cased in
similar brick. Plain tiled roofs at two levels with roof to
right hand raised. Ridge stack of narrow gault and red brick
having three rectangular shafts on rectangular base with moulded
string-course now concealed within the raised roof of the right
hand bay. Plan of three bays and lobby entry. Two storeys with
garret inserted when roof raised. Two storey porch, C17-C18
opposite the stack with hung sash with small panes, above round
headed early C19 doorway, with C20 panelled door and blind
fanlight with glazing bars. The remaining fenestration is also
hung sashes with glazing bars, including two windows, one to
each storey, to an addition to the centre bay at the front.
Interior. Has an early C19 open strung staircase with turned
newels and square section balusters. Some framing visible
showing straight downward bracing and joint techniques similar
to that of No.13 Toft Lane, 1685 (q.v.). One first floor room
has stop chamfered main beam. A passageway has been made
between the walls of the abutting inglenooks. It is likely that
the house was used as a non-conformist meeting house. In the
garden there is a burial ground with two early C18 headstones,
including one of 1705 to Thomas Webb and a table tomb and
headstones of C19 to members of the Paul family.
