TM 06 NW

1/1 Bacton Hall, with garden
wall attached to south-
- west corner

- II

Farmhouse, formerly manor house. Circa 1550. Alterations of C17 and later.
2 storeys. 3-cell plan, originally with cross-entry. Timber-framed with
concealed bricknogging with a parapet gable of red brick at the south end.
The upper part of the gable was rebuilt C18/C19. The brick gable at the
north end is probably of C17 with later alterations. Circa 1930 the front
elevation was encased in gault brick. Plaintiled roof. An axial late C16
or early C17 chimney of red brick with sawtooth shaft. Mid C20 small pane
casements with segmental arched heads at ground storey. A slated lean-to
roofed entrance and staircase porch of C19 gault brick with half glazed
door. At the rear, amongst later outshuts is a gabled 2 storey timber-
framed and bricknogged C16 structure, probably a staircase tower. (A good
quality staircase was believed to have been removed from the house in late
C19). In the hall are good roll-moulded 1st floor joists and double-ogee
moulded beams; the parlour is similar but with different mouldings. Back-
to-back lintelled open fireplaces. High quality arch wind-braced close-
studding. The attic at the parlour end (south) is original with good
chamfered floor joists; the other attics were inserted in C17. A 10 meter
length of C16 garden wall runs south-westwards from the south-west corner
of the house: red brick with diaper patterning of burnt headers, brick cap-
pings, and 2 openings like splayed windows. A partial medieval moat.
