Coggeshall Hall
Farmhouse (formerly
2.5.53 listed as Coggeshall
Hall in the parish of


House. Circa 1575, altered in C18 and early C19. Mainly timber framed and
plastered, with some weatherboarding and plum bricks in Flemish bond, roofed
with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing SW, with long-wall jetty and axial
stack. C18 extension of one bay to left. Early C19 crosswing at right end, of
plum brick, forming a T-plan and later entrance elevation. External stack to
left of front part, enclosed by C19 single-storey lean-to extension. C19
single-storey lean-to extension of painted brick with slate roof to rear of main
range, and C20 2-storey extension with flat roof to right of it, in angle of
brick wing. 2 storeys, cellar and attic. SW elevation, ground floor, 3
tripartite sashes in main range, and in brick wing, late C19 splayed bay of
sashes; first floor, one C19 casement, one late C19 sash of 3 + 6 lights, and 2
tripartite sashes in main range, and in brick wing one early C19 sash of 12
lights. One gabled dormer. Tall concertina stack. The fascia of the jetty is
carved in grotesque style, exposed for most of its length, with plain brackets.
At the left end a short section is underbuilt, at the right end it is concealed
by the lean-to extension. SE elevation, 3-window range of early C19 sashes of
12 lights with plastered surrounds and crown glass. Central 5-panel door, the
top 3 panels glazed, in portico with paired columns. Roof of this wing hipped.
The rear elevation of the main range has scattered fenestration, including on
the first floor 2 C19 horizontal sashes of 12 lights. The left return of the
main range is weatherboarded on the ground floor only, and the rear of the C18
bay is clad with painted brick on the ground floor only. Jowled posts, curved
tension braces trenched inside heavy studs. Left of the stack is an unusually
long chamfered axial beam with step stops, and plain joists of horizontal
section. Large wood-burning hearth facing left, blocked; complete bread oven
with wrought iron door. Right of the stack the chamfered axial beam has a step
stop at the left end, and a lamb's tongue stop at the right end; the joists are
of horizontal section, chamfered with lamb's tongue stops. In the front wall
are 3 original windows of early glazed type, each with one ovolo mullion and 2
diamond saddle bars, blocked. There are others in the rear wall, but these are
early insertions. One at the head of the stairs comprising one ovolo mullion
and 4 diamond saddle bars is a modern alteration; the weathered surface of the
ovolo mullion now faces inwards. The roof of the main range is of clasped
purlin construction, with arched wind braces. The C18 extension has unjowled
posts and a roof without wind bracing. This house has an interesting set of
features which makes it finely datable: (1) the combination of step stops with
lamb's tongue stops, (2) the combination of original glazed windows at the front
with inserted windows of similar type at the rear, indicating the increasing
adoption of glazing, (3) the grotesque carving. Former oriel windows have been
removed. RCHM (Little Coggeshall) 3. This building is on the parish boundary
between Feering and Kelvedon, the greater part of it in Feering. (B.L. Kentish,
Kelvedon and its Antiquities, 1974, 24-5).
