TM 15 NW
5/53 Meadow Cottage
- II

House, mid C16 with C17 alterations. 1 storey and attics. 2-cell lobby-
entrance plan. Timber-framed and rough-cast. Thatched roof, half-hipped at
left-hand end, with thatched gabled small-pane casement dormers. Small-pane
C19 and C20 casements. C20 boarded entrance door with open C20 pantiled lean-
to porch. The 3-bay C16 nucleus is at the left-hand end. A good example of
base-cruck construction, of a type found in central Suffolk in the mid C16.
Substantial plain framing: at the left-hand end is a pair of base-crucks tied
at the head beneath the half-hip, tension-braced and with evidence for a
diamond-mullioned window (c.p. Oak Cottage, Little Stonham, Item 2/141). 2
similar open base-cruck trusses, one being central over the hall chamber and
arch-braced, the other against the axial chimney and unbraced. The closed
truss at the right-hand (service) end was altered in C17 but was probably
fully hipped without base-crucks. Heavy unchamfered floor joists and arch
wind-braced studwork. Coupled-rafter roof. A wide lintelled open fireplace
in the hall. The service cell was extended to right by one bay in C17. An
early example of the lobby-entrance plan form, in which the second cell
contained an unheated service room.
