BAYLHAM UPPER STREET
TM 15 SW
3/50 Whitewheat Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C15 or early C16 core with extensions of c.1600 and later. 1
storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof with axial
chimney of red brick (the later extensions are pantiled). A thatched gabled
casement dormer. Mainly C19 small-pane casements; in the parlour is a small-
pane sash-window. Boarded C19 entrance door. The central core of the house
appears to have started as a modest 2-bay open hall; the framing is smoke-
blackened and there is an arch-braced open truss. C.1600, an upper floor was
inserted into the hall, at 2 levels and perhaps in 2 stages. Also a large
chimney was inserted into the upper bay, and a 2-bay parlour cell was added at
that end. At the lower end is a further C18 extension, and close to the road
another of C19 with hipped roof.
