1/2 Badley Hall

9.12.55
II*

Farmhouse: the surviving service range of an early C16 manor house, probably
for Sir Edmund Poley (d.1548); the remainder of the house was demolished
c.1759. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and plastered, the upper storey
is long-wall jettied along the east side; here and elsewhere are some richly-
carved exposed framing members. Plaintiled roofs with axial chimneys of red
brick, one having a massive triple-flue shaft of C16 or early C17, partly
rebuilt C18. A flat roofed C18 casement dormer. Mainly C19 small-pane
casements; on the west side are some C18 mullioned and transomed windows with
wrought iron casements and leaded lights. Also on the west is a fine original
2-storey entrance porch giving access to the cross-passage. It was formerly
jettied at 1st floor and gable levels; carved tie-beam and an altered oriel
with flanking polygonal shafts at 1st storey. The outer doorway was
remodelled in C18, but the inner doorway has an arched head with rose-carved
spandrels and a C16 moulded plank door refaced with two C18 panels. On the
north wall is a cambered spere beam with central shield and vinescroll in two
orders, beneath which access was gained from the cross-passage to the
demolished open hall. The jettied east wall has unusually fine carved
pilasters and a vinescroll-enriched bressumer. Good quality internal framing
with 4-centred arched doorways and plain crownpost roof. Several rooms have
wainscotting of all periods from C16 to, (especially) mid C18. N.M.R. Suffolk
Houses: Sandon, 1977
