2.5.53 Hart Hotel) (formerly
listed as White Hart


House, now part of hotel. C15, altered in C18 and C20. Timber framed,
plastered with some exposed framing, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main
range of 2 bays facing N. C18 narrower parallel range to rear. C15 3-bay wing
to rear left, C16 one-bay extension, and two 2-bay extensions beyond; the first
of these latter is weatherboarded on the upper storey, and both have slate
roofs. One-bay wing to rear right, and C20 single-storey flat-roofed extension
beyond. Main range and parallel range of 3 storeys, wings of 2 storeys. Ground
floor, 2 C20 splayed bays of sashes in early C19 style. First floor, 3 early
C19 tripartite sashes of 4-12-4 lights. Second floor, 2 early C19 tripartite
sashes of 3-9-3 lights, and one dummy, painted on plaster. Between the bays,
one C20 6-panel door in early C19 architrave, with semi-elliptical hood and
blocked overlight with radial tracery, all blocked internally. To right, C20
glazed double doors, set back, and one C20 6-panel door. Roof hipped at right,
short of right boundary, and false front above first-floor height extended to
right. Triglyph frieze at eaves level. In the right return of the left rear
wing, on the first floor, is one C18/early C19 sash of 12 lights. In the ground
floor a panel of original wattle is exposed in the left wall. A C20 brick pier
in the middle supports an introduced chamfered beam to left, with introduced
joists. To right of it is an original chamfered axial beam, unstopped, and
plain joists of horizontal section jointed to it with central tenons with housed
soffits; most of the joists in front of the beam are modern replacements of
re-used timber. Little of the first-floor framing is visible, but a post at
rear left is deeply charred, reportedly from a fire in the C18. Late C18
chamfered beams with long lamb's tongue stops above first floor. The first wing
to rear left has jowled posts, joggled longitudinal beams, chamfered and
unstopped, and plain joists of horizontal section jointed to them with unrefined
soffit tenons; edge-halved and bridled scarf in right wallplate; crownpost roof,
the base of one crownpost visible below the ceiling, the remainder inaccessible
at time of survey. The extension beyond has a chamfered axial beam with step
stops, and plain joists of horizontal section jointed to it with soffit tenons
with diminished haunches, indicating a date range of 1510-70; the roof is lower
than that of the main wing, also inaccessible. The extension beyond has some
C16 floor structure, the remainder much altered. Known as Maykynes in the time
of Henry VIII (G.F. Beaumont, A History of Coggeshall in Essex, 1890, 129, 233).
Described in sale catalogue of 1828 (Essex Record Office, B.2981). RCHM 76.
