7/125 Cartlodge, 50m south of
Old Hall Farmhouse
Cartlodge, C18 or possibly C17. 3 bays with aisles on both sides. Timber-
framed; each side bay is infilled with clay lump; the ends were originally
open, but the rear wall is now clad with weatherboarding. Thatched roof,
half-hipped at ends. Pegged oak framing, with plank arch-bracing up to tie
beams. The feet of the arcade posts were once linked to one another, and are
still tied to the external walls. Clasped-purlin roof. A good example of a
draw-through cartlodge; the incorporation of aisles is an exceptional feature,
and is possibly a rare survival of medieval form, (cartlodges do not survive
from earlier than C17 in Suffolk).
