metres south-east of
Bradwell Hall

- II

Part of ancillary building of manor. Early C16. Timber framed, weatherboarded,
roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 2 bays facing north-west, formerly of a
longer building. 2 storeys. Open implement shed attached to SW, stable
attached to NE, neither of special architectural or historic interest. Ground
floor, plain boarded door and 2 C20 metal casements. First floor, plain boarded
loading door and one defective window. Jowled posts, heavy studding, axial beam
with plain joists of horizontal section jointed to it with soffit tenons with
diminished haunches. Wide arched doorhead over present door. Crownpost roof
with heavy down-bracing to central tiebeam and heavy arched bracing to
collar-purlin. The high quality of the frame and the wide doorhead indicate
that this is the remaining part of a building originally of manorial status,
probably a court hall or granary/stable range. The boarding of the first floor
is defective and is replaced by corrugated iron.
