TL 9762
5/179 Weaver House and No.2
(formerly listed as '
- Premises on North East side
of The Street, 70 yards North
West of Swan Hotel)
Two houses, built as one. Probably late C15: an urban house of high quality:
mid C16 remodelling, when the central hall was rebuilt. 2 storeys and attics.
3-cell plan. 4 windows. Timber-framed and plastered, the framing fully
exposed with plaster infill panels. Close-studding without external
windbracing; the first floor entirely jettied to The Street and to Mason's
Lane. Curved knees of varying thicknesses beneath the jetty, some carved
integrally with the post - an unusual feature in Suffolk. Simply-moulded
bressumers. At the corner of Mason's Lane is a spur corner post with a
moulded and embattled capital. Plaintiled roof with 3 gabled dormers of
C17/C18 with C20 casements. Axial C16 or C17 chimney of red brick. 3-light
C18 casements. Two boarded and battened C20 entrance doors. A garage door
occupies the ground storey walling of the left hand cell. To rear right the
roof is hipped and gabletted, and there is evidence that this was a full
crosswing until the main roof was rebuilt and the gable introduced in C17.
Also evidence for shop windows beneath the jetty at the right-hand gable. At
Weaver House are two very faded black-letter inscriptions of mid C16 type,
placed above fireplaces on plasterwork, and each surrounded by a decorative
frieze. One has a devotional text which alludes to the book of Philippians,
the other is barely legible. (Proc. Suff. Inst. Arch: Leslie Dow, F.S.A.,
