TM 38 SE
3/31 St. Margaret's Hall
- II
Farmhouse, formerly divided into 2. Early and mid C17. 2 storeys and attics;
a main range and a slightly later cross-wing. Timber-framed, partly rendered,
but mainly faced in colour-washed brick. Black glazed pantiles. Both ranges
have internal chimney-stacks with plain red brick shafts. The main range has
3 C20 cross windows to the upper floor and 2 3-light mullion-and-transome type
to the ground floor, all in shallow reveals. 2 doors, slightly recessed, with
4 flush panels, the top 2 glazed, and rectangular fanlights: one has a small
open porch. The cross-wing has 2-light and 3-light C20 casement windows. At
the rear is a tall narrow stair wing, the full height of the house. Inside,
most timbers are covered: in the main range, one main beam with ovolo-moulding
and complex stepped stops with jewel. The upper ceilings are original, and a
small section of C17 turned balusters survives by the attic stair at the top
of the stair wing. The roof has clasped purlins and a lower row of unstepped
butt purlins, straight collars, and intermediate collars between the trusses.
The cross-wing has a 3-cell lobby-entrance form: 5 bays, including a chimney-
bay, with a newel stair beside the stack. Some plain framing exposed. Roof
with one row of unstepped and one row of stepped butt purlins. Both ranges
have later saddles attached to the apex of the rafters.
