6/84 No. 2 Poplar Farmhouse

- II

House, formerly farmhouse. Early C16, with alterations of C17 and c.1980.
Small open-hall house with cross-wing to right and altered service cell to
left. The hall range is of 1 storey with attics, and the cross-wing of 2
storeys. Timber-framed and rendered, with alterations of clunch and painted
brick. C20 applied half-timbering to cross-wing. Hipped double Roman pantiled
roof, formerly thatched, with rendered C17 chimney having sunk date panel, the
upper part of shaft in gault brick. C19 and C20 casements and panelled
entrance door. The small central open hall has its original smoke-blackened
clasped-purlin roof. The 2-bay cross-wing was originally of 2 cells at ground
floor and one above, which has a central arch-braced tie-beam. A narrow cell
to left has heavy lodged floor joists and evidence for close-studding; there
was originally a small loft above within a hipped roof. This end was extended
C17 to provide a heated parlour, and a massive chimney and 1st floor were
inserted into the hall. Included despite C20 alterations because a rare
example of a late-mediaeval Breckland farmhouse; a further rare feature is the
original combination of an open hearth with a hall having a side-purlin roof,
two features not normally considered contemporary in Suffolk.
