723-1/5/286 (East side)
Stable, 9m south-east of Frieze Hall


Stable, now used as a store. Late C16, C17 and C18.
Timber-framed on a low brick base and weatherboarded with
peg-tiled roof, hipped with end gablets. At SW end the hip
continues over small out-shut. Rectangular plan. Front NW
elevation has an approximately central doorway with C20
boarded door and another doorway to the NE with lower part
blocked and upper half door.
INTERIOR has 2 late C16 central bays with C17 and C18
extensions at the 2 ends under the hips of the roof. The 2
central bays indicate the original size of the building as the
outer tie-beams have mortices for the end wall studs and
internal bracing and also rafter seating joints for roof hips.
Set within these tie-beams are 2 rafter couples with added
collars to receive the hip rafters. That to the SW is still in
use but carries additional rafters to create a continuous hip
and out-shut roof. The lengthening of the building at both
ends has kept essentially the same roof shape. The framing of
the 2 central bays has fairly wide studding, 0.69m (27")
between centres. The principal posts are jowled and have
rising internal curved arched bracing passing by the studs and
not cut into them. The central roof truss is of the side
purlin type with principal rafters reduced in thickness from
the purlin to the apex. Heavy raking queen struts clasp the
purlins in position and lengthwise stiffening is provided by
elegantly curved wind-braces. The front walling has been
considerably re-worked and breeze block infilling has been
inserted into part of the rear wall. The principal framing and
shape of the original building though survives, constructed by
a technique not frequently found in East Anglia. A C20 lean-to
shed on SE side and continuing from SW end is not included in
the listing. The stable forms a group with Frieze Hall (qv).
