NEEDHAM MARKET HAWKSMILL STREET
A substantial fragment of a Wealden house of late C15 or early C16, altered
later in C16. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered on a painted brick
plinth; the upper floor is long-wall jettied towards the street (a late C16
alteration). Plaintiled roof with internal end chimney of red brick. Mid C19
sash windows to ground storey, 3-light leaded casements of C18/early C19 at
upper storey. C19 6-panelled entrance door, the upper panels glazed.
Undisturbed smoke-encrusted roof; the open truss has a plain square crown-
post, the cambered tie-beam formerly having had massive arch-braces. The
left-hand bay has been truncated, and a probably storeyed cell to left also
demolished. In late C16 the front wall was rebuilt, to include an inserted
jettied upper floor. In C19 this was a part of The Queens Head Inn, together
with Nos.13 and 15 Hawksmill Street.
