WICKHAM SKEITH THWAITE ROAD
TM 06 NE
2/153 Hall Farmhouse
-

-- II
Farmhouse. C16; possibly earlier work at service end. Main range with
parlour cross-wing to right. Timber framed and rendered, pantiled roof. 3
cells. 2 storeys. Casement windows, mostly of late C19. To right of main
range, at junction with wing, is a lobby entrance: late C19 4-panel door and
plain overlight. Stack has axial red brick shaft. Small C19 stack on left
gable end. One-storey lean-to at rear with flint rubble walls and pantiled
roof. Interior. Frame concealed except at service end where walls have been
raised c.1.5m; widely-spaced studs below old wallplate. Hall and parlour
ceilings have chamfered main beams, the joists concealed. Massive lintol over
blocked hall fireplace. Newel stair behind stack. Cross-wing has 3-bay
queen-post roof, some of the braces missing. The tie beams which supported
the queen-posts were removed c.1600 when an ovolo-moulded cross-beamed ceiling
was inserted, and the queen-posts now bear on sleepers resting on the attic
floor joists. Roof over main range appears to be a later reconstruction.
