TM 15 NE
No 43 (Hall Cottage)
House, C16 with probably mediaeval core. 2-cell plan with cross-passage
entry. 1 storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof,
half-hipped at the left-hand end with one eyebrow casement dormer. Axial
C16/C17 chimney of red brick. C19 casements. Boarded C19 entrance door.
Very little framing exposed at date of survey: a section of exposed smoke-
encrusted wall-plate; a central open truss has been entirely removed, and
other evidence suggesting an open hall house which has been altered. A large
inserted single-flue chimney backs onto the former cross-passage; later the
service cell partition was removed and a further flue added.
