5/43 Tylers Farmhouse
Hall house, early C16, altered in C17, C19 and C20. Timber framed, roughcast
rendered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. Hall block of 2 storeys, early
C17, aligned approximately NE-SW,aspect SE. 2 crosswings, C16, jet tied at
front. 3 C19 chimney stacks, in middle of hall block and in middle of each
crosswing. Small 2 storey extension to side of SW crossing, C20. Flat roofed
single storey extension to rear of NE crosswing, C20. 2 storeys. Door with 2
lights, C19, 3 C19 casement windows on ground floor, 3 on first floor. Some
framing exposed internally. On ground floor all or most of visible framing is
C20 or re-sited old timber. On first floor, generally original. In SW
crosswing, arched braces rising from posts to wallplates and tiebeams inside
studs, not trenched. Edge-halved and bridled scarf in NE wallplate. Queen
strut roof with curved wind bracing to clasped purlins. In NE crosswing,
unglazed window in NE wall, blocked. Curved tension bracing, trenched inside
studs (in front elevation, terminating on studs, 'Suffolk bracing'). Queen
strut roof with curved wind bracing to clasped purlins. This house began as a
true medieval hall house, with 2 crosswings slightly different in construction
and therefore in date, the NE being the earlier, but both built within the C16.
In the early C17 the hall was rebuilt as a 2 storey hall block, re-using sooted
roof components from the earlier hall, with roof of clasped purlin construction.
In the early C19 it was converted to 3 cottages, each with a central chimney
stack, and later recombined into one house.
