SWAFFHAM PRIOR

No 59 Anglesey House

II

House, probably late C17 extended early in C18 and again late in
same century by the addition of a room at the North end. Front
wall is timber-framed, rendered on a narrow brick sill but the
side and rear walls are clunch, except for the apex of the
gables which are also framed. Roof raised, early C18, plain
tiled with two similar stacks of gault brick with string-courses
in the form of cornices. Original plan of single range of four
rooms and lobby entry but passage cut through the stack c1900.
Two storeys. Four early C18 cross frame casements with leaded
lights and iron stay bars. Some of the glazing is original. At
ground floor four similar windows except for two which are of
three lights. There are similar casements in the gables of the
early C18 addition at the rear. The late C18 addition to the
North is clunch cased in gault brick. Inside the heads of the
posts of the framed front wall are visible at first floor and
mark the original eaves height. There is also an early C18
closed string staircase (reset) with square newels and turned
balusters, and some panelling now concealed in a ground floor
room.
