NEEDHAM MARKET KING WILLIAM STREET
A rare form of Wealden house, probably late C15; but greatly altered in C17
and C18. 2 storeys with attics, 2 windows. Timber-framed and plastered, with
C18 small panels, raised and roughcast, with broad smooth plastered borders.
Concrete plaintiled roof with axial chimney of red brick; a plaintiled gabled
C18 dormer. C19 small-pane windows; sashes at ground storey and casements at
1st storey. C20 side entrance door. The original house consisted of:
a) a storeyed bay to right, jettied at both front and back;
b) a single-bay open hall recessed at both front and back;
c) a probable service cell to left which would have contained a cross-
passage, but has since been demolished and replaced by No.19
King William Street.
The building appears therefore to have presented a Wealden-type elevation at
both front and back, a feature not known elsewhere in Suffolk at date of
survey. At both ends of the small open hall are beams at 1st floor level,
moulded and embattled, and one tie-beam has similar mouldings on the face
exposed in the hall. Widely-spaced tension-braced studwork. Plain crownpost
roof, smoke-blackened in the hall bay. In C17/C18, the front wall framing of
the hall, and the lower wall beneath the jettied bay to right, were pushed
forward to form a flush facade. Part of the rear jettied wall remains, within
a C19 extension. A first floor was inserted into the hall with an internal
chimney in C17/C18.
