9/11 Braughing Bury
House, 2 houses from early C17 up to 1970. Late medieval,
altered in late C16, early C17, late C17, early C18 and c1970.
Timber frame on red brick sill, plastered with panelled
basketwork pargetting, and stucco plinth to W wing. Steep old
red tile roofs with tall octagonal red brick chimneys with
spurred caps. Oldest part, in centre, was an open hall with
crown-post roof, with a cross-passage and service bay at the E
and a 2-bay, 2 storeys crosswing at W. Late C16 beams inserted
in the hall point to a timber-framed predecessor to the late C17
central chimney. The accommodation was greatly enlarged in the
early C17 when a long E crosswing of 2 storeys and attics was
built and the W crosswing greatly extended to the rear (S) with a
gabled stair in the rear angle. A lower gabled 2-storeys and
attics range was added beside the E crosswing in the late C17
when the hall chimney was rebuilt. In the early C18 the W wing
was extended to W, refronted and reroofed with two parallel
ridges E-W, and its central door is now the main entrance to the
house. This wing has a near-symmetrical elevation with 3
windows. Flush box sashes with 10/10 panes each side of the
central window with 6/6 panes. Pilastered Tuscan door surround
with entablature to 4 panel door with round headed radial
fanlight. 2- and 3-light flush leaded casements irregularly
disposed on rest of N front, with bargeboarded gables of E wing
with pierced pendants. Framing exposed in the interior. (RCHM
