DEBENHAM ASPALL ROAD
TM 16 SE
House, at one time used as a dairy serving the farmhouse attached to the north
(qv. Item 6/51). C15 core with much later rebuilding. Timber framed,
pebbledash render, pantiled roof. 1 1/2 storeys. Various casement windows. 2
catslide dormers with mid C20 single-paned 2-light windows. C20 2-panel door.
Internal stack with C19 red brick shaft. Mid C20 lean-to against right gable
end. Interior. The most important feature is the rare survival of an intact
stud and plaster chimney. There are back-to-back open fireplaces on the
ground floor, one with a central post from a service partition re-used as a
lintol. The C15 work comprises fragments of a 2-bay former open hall: front
cross-entry doorway with 2-centred arch; front wallpost with mortice for brace
to former open truss; some framing, mainly in the gable ends, the service
gable end with mid rail halved against the outside of the studs, an unusual
feature. Tie beam from open truss re-positioned at lower end of hall. Side
walls and roof largely of C17 or later. Ceiling in upper bay of hall has
chamfered joists set flat. Substantial on-edge joists in left cell.
