St Mary's House (now flats) and
Former Stables to North East of
St Mary's House
TM 49 SW 1/12A
Early 19th century. 2 storeys. Suffolk yellow brick. Wood modillion cornice.
Slates. Plinth. 5 windows, sash with glazing bars and flat arches. 6-panel
door with patterned fanlight, in wood case with panelled reveals continuing
under arch, Doric 3/4 columns and modillion entablature. This house was
occupied by a succession of headmasters of a school which was endowed by
Dr Henry Falconbridge LLD under a will dated 1712, but which became effective
in 1770 after the death of intervening beneficiaries. St Mary's was left as
such by Dr Falconbridge for use as a school, which was held in a succession
of buildings including the Town Hall. During the present century the extensive
stabling was converted for use as school-rooms, and a modern tablet with the
Falconbridge coat of arms, and HF17 1712 inscribed, was put up to record the
origin of the school.
