(South-West Side)

16/75 Barham Hall

Farmhouse. Medieval, early C16 and possibly C17 with c.1800 alterations.
Flint rubble, timber-framed and plastered and early C19 red brick. Plain
tiled roofs. End stack to left hand and tall square planned ridge stack to
right of centre; two rear stacks. Two storeys. Main east-west range with
three unit plan and gabled mid C17 rear extensions including surviving
medieval wall up to first floor height; refaced in south and west elevations
c.1800. C16 jettied north-south range to rear from east end reduced to two
bays in 1954. South elevation: Entrance to left of centre with reeded
wooden architrave, projecting cornice with fitted pelmet, panelled reveals
and four-panelled half-glazed door with flanking three-light hung sash
windows and two twelve-paned hung sash windows to right hand in segmental
brick arches. Five first floor recessed twelve-paned hung sash windows.
Interior: Early C16 range with wind braced side purlin roof and ogee-moulded
ceiling beams (qv the Guildhall), C17 roll-moulded inserted bressumer, coeval
with gabled rear extensions. Exposed timber-frame, early C17 panelling
reused beside stair. The farmhouse was possibly built by John Millicent
c.1560 on the site of the convent of the Crutched Friars called Barham
Priory, dissolved in 1539. The jettied C16 range may have been the manor
court hall where Robert Millicent is said in 1577 to have held four courts
annually. It remained the property of the Millicent family until 1748. In
c.1807 it was bequeathed to Pembroke College Cambridge. In 1954 the building
was renovated, when some original windows were found and the C18 brewhouse
