HORHAM THE STREET
TM 27 SW
Rose Cottage and The
29.7.55 Homestead ( formerly
listed as Premises 45 yds
S. of Eight Bells Public
Two dwellings. C15 core with C17 alteration; in-line additions at both ends
in C18, early C19 and c.1980 (when modernised) to form a single long range.
Timber framed and roughcast-rendered with a pantiled roof. 1 1/2 storeys. Mid
C20 standard casement windows with small panes, 2 raking dormers and 2 boarded
doors. Internal stack. The core comprises a 2-bay former open hall with an
open truss of crude raised-aisle form, only the rear half visible. A bridging
beam set well below wallplate level carries a plain post which rises to an
arcade plate and collar; there is a side tie to the wallplate and below this
a curved brace down to the end of the bridging beam. There is evidence for an
original cross-entry doorway in the front wall; close by is part of another
arched doorhead, apparently in situ. The upper end wall has been rebuilt with.
many re-used timbers, this work pre-dating the inserted floor. The queen-
posts in the upper end wall are not pegged to the tie beam; between them is
evidence for a 6-light diamond-mullioned window. The rafters are intact and
sooted above the arcade plates. The inserted floor has irregular heavy
joists, notched into the C15 bridging beam and supported by a ledge against
the end wall. Stack inserted into cross-passage in C17. Bay to right of
stack is a C17 rebuilding of the medieval service end, re-using many timbers.
The floor structure has a C17 axial bridging beam and re-used medieval joists.
