NEEDHAM MARKET HAWKSMILL STREET
3/65 No.2, (Elton House )
(Formerly listed as No 2
9.12.55 (Temperance Hotel))
Shop and house. Roof of 1621 (as carved on purlin), but core possibly C16.
Much remodelling in mid C19. 2 storeys, the range to High Street with attics.
Timber-framed; the upper storey roughcast, the lower storey encased in C19
painted brick. Both ranges were formerly jettied towards the street on two
sides at 1st floor level, the jetties meeting at posts at the corners of High
Street, Hawksmill Street and King William Street. Plaintiled roofs with C19
undulating bargeboards and spike finial. Axial chimneys of red brick. Mainly
mid C19 small-pane sashes. 4-panelled C19 entrance door to Elton House with
oblong fanlight and a gabled canopy with undulating bargeboards. Shop windows
and glazed entrance door of late C19 or early C20. Above the shop is a roof
with two tiers of butt purlins and square cambered collars; one purlin has the
well-carved date 1621, no doubt the date of construction. However, fragments
of exposed carpentry elsewhere in the building suggest a possible C16 core.
