8/100 No. 18 (Bridge House)
21.12.67 (formerly listed in one
item with 'Tacoma', now
No. 20 (Timbers) to the


House. C16, altered in C17 and C18. Timber framed, plastered with some
weatherboarding, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays aligned NW-SE,
with entrance elevation at NW end. Axial stack of c.1600 in second bay from SE
end, and late C17 stair tower to NE of it. C20 extension to SE of stair tower.
2 storeys and attics. NW elevation (to Feering Hill), 2-window range of
C18/early C19 sashes of 12 lights, and one of 4 + 4 lights on first floor. Some
crown glass. 6-panel door at left end of elevation, the top 2 panels glazed, in
eared doorcase with pediment head. Wooden dentilled eaves cornice. Roof
hipped. The NE elevation of the stair tower is partly weatherboarded, with an
C18 transomed 3-light window with wrought iron casement and rectangular leading.
The 4-bay range was built in the C16 as a crosswing to an earlier hall house to
the NE, now no. 18 (Timbers), with a long-jetty entrance elevation to the SW, at
that time facing the road bridge over the River Blackwater. A bridge was built
on the present line of Feering Hill c.1780, and the re-styling of the house to
face Feering Hill probably dates from that time. The jetty is now underbuilt.
Moulded axial and transverse beams throughout. Hollow-chamfered joists of
horizontal section with runout stops in the 2 NW bays, plain joists of
horizontal section in the SE bay. 2 wood-burning hearths back to back of 0.33
metre brickwork, both mantel beams replaced. Late CL7 open-well stair of high
quality, with moulded strings and handrails and twist-turned balusters, meriting
special care.
