5/97 Termitt's Farmhouse
House. C15, altered in C16 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. 2-bay hall facing NW, with axial stack near left end,
and 2 2-bay crosswings. C20 external stack to right. Single-storey lean-to
extension with slate roof to left, and C20 external stack in front and tiled
single-storey extension beyond. 2 storeys with attics. Ground floor, 4 C20
sashes and 2 C20 casements. First floor, 5 C20 casements. 2-storey porch, with
half-glazed door in C20 pedimented doorcase in front. Both crosswings jettied,
with original structure covered. Most of the interior is plastered. Chamfered
axial beam with lamb's tongue stops, of C16 inserted floor. Some step stops
visible on posts. The roofs of the hall and crosswings are original, of
butt-purlin construction with arched wind braces, the roof of the hall heavily
smoke-blackened. This is an unusual construction in Essex before the late C16,
and suggests Midlands influence. The height of the hall, allowing 2 storeys of
good height, indiates high manorial status originally, confirmed by the 2-storey
porch, probably added in the C16. The timber structure of the walls is probably
undisturbed, although concealed by plaster. RCHM 6.
