4/85 Newe House
14.7.55
II*

Manor house. Late C16/early C17. 2 storeys and double attics. Red brick with
moulded brick string-course above ground storey windows, and a similar cornice
band below parapet. Flanking external chimney-stacks with square detached
diagonal shafts. Plaintiled roof. Triple Dutch gables across front. Central 5-
sided. 2-storey porch with round-arched rusticated doorway, triangular pediment
with date 1622, arms of Spring above. Large canted bay to upper storey: early
C20 cross window, with triangular pediments replace earlier sashes. Flat roof,
with a brick cornice of 5 small lunettes. On each side of porch one 4-light
and one 3-light mullion and transome window: ovolo-moulded brick mullions,
rusticated surrounds, late C19 render. In each gable, a 4-light mullioned
window with a small single-light window above. All windows have late C19 square
leaded panes. Within porch, a fine inner doorway with complex ovolo-moulding on
jambs and lintel. Said to have been built for Sir Robert Bright, who bought
extensive lands in Pakenham and surrounding parishes from the Bacons in 1601.
The date 1622 has been taken to refer to the whole construction but the main house
could be earlier, with the porch and Dutch gables as a Bright addition. Newe House
passed to the Spring family in the late 1640's, and became a dower house.
Descendants of the family owned it until the mid C19. Illustrated in Basil Oliver's
'Old Houses and Village Buildings in East Anglia' Plate LXVI.
