NEEDHAM MARKET HAWKSMILL STREET
3/64 No.10, (Longville House)
House and museum. C15/early C16 core probably in 2 stages, with major
remodelling in mid C19. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed core, largely
rebuilt in C18 and C19 red brick. Elevation to Hawksmill Street: C18 red
brick walling with band at 1st floor and a coved plastered eaves cornice.
Plaintiled roof with C19 parapet gables and various chimneys of red brick.
C19 gabled casement dormers. C19 casements, in C18 openings with flat arches
of gauged brick. Mid C19 entrance doorway at side: an arched panelled door
with gabled plaintiled porch cantilevered on large timber brackets. Two rooms
in the front range have ceilings with exposed floor joists, in the hall the
joists are roll-moulded and the bridging joist is also embattled in the early
C16 manner, and in the end room the joists are unchamfered and very large in
the mediaeval manner. A large rear wing in gault and red brick is a mid C19
rebuilding of an earlier range. The house was acquired by Edmund Bedingfield,
clothier, in 1721. It was known at that time as the Woad House, apparently
having been used for the dying of cloth for many years.
