TM 05 SE
2/34 Stable range, 30 metres
9.12.55 south-east of Baylham Hall
- II*
A fine example of a mid C16 stable range serving a substantial manor house.
10 bays and about 35 metres long. The ground storey is of red brick, the
lodgings at the upper storey are timber-framed, partly with exposed brick
nogging but mainly clad with weatherboarding. Pantiled roof, hipped at right.
7 original openings at ground storey (some windows, some doorways), have 4-
centred arched heads (some probably began as windows and have been converted
to doorways). Several have boarded C19 doors. The upper storey has arch-
braced close-studding of high quality. Several original mullioned windows;
one at the rear is complete with square mullions and a shutter-slide; at least
one window facing the Hall has moulded reveals and evidence for moulded
mullions with individual arched heads to each light. Complete crown-post roof;
the posts are tall and square with thin 2-way braces. In C17, long rafter
braces, purlins and struts were introduced. Heavy unmoulded 1st floor
members; at the right-hand cell (used for stabling riding horses) the upper
floor structure has been removed. A C20 asbestos-clad grain store is attached
to the rear.
