TM 05 NE
4/122 Nos. 1, 2 and 3, Weylands
9-12-55 Cottages
- II

3 cottages; built early C16 as one 3-cell house with remodelling of c.1550. A
single-cell unit-house (also of c.1550), is attached corner-to-corner, and now
comprises the 3rd cottage. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered with some
C18 cable-pattern pargetting; the unit-house has original brick-nogging
between studs, from which the later plaster has partly fallen. Thatched roof
with axial and gable chimneys of red brick. C19 and C20 small-pane casements.
C19 boarded entrance doors. The gable facing the road is part of the c.1550
remodelling and has an oversailing gable tiebeam, embattled and moulded, on
short pendant posts with rose-carved arch braces. There is evidence for an
archbraced collar in the gable above. All the c.1550 work is of good quality:
a blocked doorway has an enriched 4-centred arched head. 2-tier wind-braced
butt-purlin roofs. The unit-house consists of a hall with end chimney, and a
ceiled chamber above; both have roll-moulded beams and joists above, and a
faint but quite-complete scheme of original wall-decoration survives. The
rolls have red and white barber-shop pole stripes. A frieze of black crosses
encircles the hall. The main beams have running interlace painted in black
along the soffit. The studwork, very closely spaced, is picked out in red.
The principal posts in the hall have moulded and embattled jowls supporting
the upper floor. Blocked windows have square mullions. In poor condition at
date of survey.
