House now shop. Early C16 and late C16. Timber-framed and
rendered, peg-tiled roof. Rectangular plan with C19 brick rear
addition not of special interest and not a part of this
listing. 2 storey. Front, N elevation, gabled to street, said
to have been totally refronted a few years ago. Ground floor
inset, possibly reflecting a former jetty. C20 shop window and
doorway both with slightly bowed glazing, with glazing bars,
door 3x3 panes and 2 lower panels, window 6x4 panes. First
floor large C20 2-light window with top opening casements.
Rear, S elevation adjacent to South Street obscured by C19
addition. W elevation, to South Street timber-framed and
weatherboarded, 2 storey, first floor C19 window of 3
casements with house frame stud as divider.
INTERIOR framing of 2 periods. To front, early C16, of 2 bays
with first floor chamfered jowled post of central truss with
up-sloping mortice for arched brace to tie-beam. Ground-floor
rear wall has a straight door head and wattle and daub still
in situ. Late C16 framing of lower grade, in SW angle regular
lines of large peg holes in the wall studs for a weavers'
warping frame, probably C17. This block may constitute an
added cross-wing to the earlier hall house to E (Nos 60 & 62
(qv)) or, more likely, a shop unit constructed when a
similarly proportioned alteration was made to No.62, being
fashioned out of the earlier hall block. Nos 62 & 64 occupy
the length of the suggested original medieval hall. RCHM
Central and SW Essex in which the block is interpreted as a
second cross-wing to the original hall.
Nos 60, 62 & 64 form a group.
(Central and SW Essex : Monument 8: 36).
