30/05/69 Fellmongers' Hall (Darwin Centre)
(Formerly Listed as:
Woolstore at rear of Nos 4, 5 and 6)
Former fellmongers' hall, now community centre. Early C16.
Timber-framed with plain tiled roof and brick infilling to
2-3 storeys, canted range in 2 distinct phases. Inserted
openings to ground floor, the wall partly opened away to a
late C20 extension on the right. Renewed casement windows
above. Framed in square panels with some tension bracing.
Attic storey framed independently above a principal rail which
may have been original wall plate. Framing not continuous
throughout the length of the building, suggesting several
phases of construction.
INTERIOR: hall is divided into at least 4 bays by major
trusses (inserted partition walls obscure further structural
evidence). 3 visible trusses, each of different design, but
each incorporating tie beam, or remains of tie beam below the
level of the existing wall plate, suggesting that walls have
been raised. One queen post truss, one truss with elbowed
braces carrying collar, the third with angle braces to raised
tie beam or collar which carries queen struts to upper collar.
