TQ 6794 8/144 Nos 6, 8 and 10

GV II* (star)


Former house, now three cottages. c.1400 and timber framed and weatherboarded
with gables asbestos slate roof. The front has 3 entrance doors and a 2 light case-
ment, to each unit with 3 square panes to each light. Off centre small brick stacks
and stacks at each gable end. Small in-line open hall house of late 14th century
substantially complete inside. Central hall thus has cambered tie beam, with heavy
arch braces, in situ with 4-way braced, octagonal crown post with moulded cap and
base. Service and parlour partitions are without tie beams, of the 'raised collar'
type with the rafters lowered to storey post upstands. This is the earliest example
of this technique yet seen in Essex and its utilisation, within a 'closed truss'
format is worthy of more detailed study. The arched head of the former front door
remains in situ as does a major part of the parlour partition. C17 log burning
fireplace inserted into hall with contemporary first floor. The service end
(No.l0) shows traces of a probable smoke bay (kitchen fireplace) against the end
wall, replaced in C17 by a substantial brick stack.
