Listing Text

HOXNE LOW STREET (east side)
TM 17 NE
7/115 Hobby House ( formerly listed as Butcher Shop
(opp. Bridge House)

Shop. Early C19 with early C20 alteration. An unusual example of a
freestanding purpose-built wooden shop, long used as a butcher's premises and
possibly designed for this purpose. Timber framed, originally weatherboarded.
Slated roof. Single storey. Three-quarter engaged columns at angles, with
cornice and pedimented gable; until early C20 this front was open, with a low
wall and iron railings between the present columns. The facade is now boarded
in panels; to each side are square-leaded oval windows with tinted glass and
circular panels of painted glass depicting a bull's head (left) and ram's
head (right). The central 18-paned shop window is a mid C20 addition,
replacing an open counter with removable shutters. The right return wall has
an early C20 door with 2 longitudinal glazed panels and a moulded panel below.
The upper part of this wall has a continuous mullioned opening with a
horizontal grill of small metal bars, probably original. On the left return
wall, an early C20 wooden slatted ventilation opening.
