- II

House, early C16, with early C17 alterations. A 3-cell open-hall house of
which one cell has been replaced by a C17 parlour block. 1 storey and attics.
Timber framed and plastered. Thatched roof, half-hipped at left hand end,
with C19 eyebrow casement dormers. Axial chimney of red brick. Various early
and later C19 casements. Battened plank entrance door of C16/C17 origin
within a C20 gabled pantiled-roofed porch. Complete 2-bay open hall; the open
truss has a cambered tie-beam with evidence for arch-braces now removed.
Coupled-rafter roof with light smoke blackening. A cross-entry doorway
survives (blocked), with 4-centred arched head; evidence for twin service room
doorways and a parlour doorway, all now removed, and for the diamond-mullioned
hall windows, one of which was reduced for a similar but smaller C17 window.
Arch wind-braced close-studding. In early C17 a large open fireplace for the
hall was placed in the service cell, which was then demolished and replaced by
a large parlour, with an arched brick open fireplace. Chamfered exposed
floorjoists here, and a similar upper floor inserted into the hall. Wind-
braced clasped-purlin roof. C17 lobby-entrance with complete newel staircase
against chimney. A good example of the "reversal" of an open hall house in
the C17.(Two Small Mediaeval Houses:Proc.Suff.Inst.Arch.,Sylvia Colman,B.Sc.
