4/261 The Dolphin Public
House, now public house. Mid-C16, altered in C18. Timber framed, plastered,
roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Single range facing SE comprising one
long bay, and one short bay at each end. C19 internal stack against front wall
of long bay. C17/18 one-bay extension to left, with external stack at end. One
storey with attics. Single-storey lean-to extension with slate roof at rear,
and C20 flat-roofed single-storey extension beyond. 3 C20 and 2 C19 sashes, and
4 C20 sashes in slate-roofed lean-to dormers. C20 door. Gambrel roof,
half-hipped at right end. Chamfered axial beam with step stops in each bay;
plain joists of horizontal section jointed to it with soffit tenons with
diminished haunches. Trimmed stair trap, blocked, in rear of right bay. The
former partition between this bay and the long bay has been removed, and the
rear half of the beam. Most of the studding of the rear wall has been removed
for the bar and for modern apertures. The left extension has plain joists
arranged longitudinally, supported on a pegged clamp, and some modern joists.
The frame is illustrated in C.A. Hewett, The Development of Carpentry,
1200-1700, an Essex Study, 1969, 150 (wrongly attributed to the parish of
Bradwell-juxta-Coggeshall). Hewett dated it c.1565, but the step stops indicate
that this is the latest possible date. RCHM 14.
