1/30 Hill Farm Old House
Former farmhouse. Early C17. 2 storeys: 3-cell lobby-entrance form. Timber-
framed and rendered, with thatched roof. An internal chimney-stack with a
plain rendered shaft, and a C19 end stack on the south, set externally. 2 2-
light old casement windows to first floor, and 2 similar 3-light casements to
the ground floor, all with pintle hinges. An early C19 enclosed and gabled
brick porch, colour-washed, with black-glazed pantiled roof: square hoodmoulds
in Tudor style to doorway and side windows; plank door with applied pilaster
strips. A small brick lean-to along the south side and part of the front.
Frame in 4 bays, without a chimney-bay; the upper tie-beams have been cut or
removed, and there is some reused timber; various blocked original mullioned
windows. On the ground floor 2 ceilings are exposed: chamfered main beams and
unchamfered joists, set flat. Roof with clasped purlins and windbraces.
There is no evidence that the house had an open hall, but the internal
chimney-stack may well be a later insertion. The kitchen has a cast iron oven
door, and a fine range by Richmond of Bungay, set in a fireplace surround of
