Listing Text


4/51 Nos. 8 & 9.
25.10.51 (formerly listed as No 9)


House, irregularly divided into 2. C14, late C16 and mid C19. 2 storeys and
attic; basic hall range and cross-wing plan, with later extensions. Timber-
framed; hall range raised and faced in mid-C19 white brick, with slate roof
and bracketed cornice; cross-wing plastered, with comb-pargetted panels along
the side walls; plaintiled roof. The hall range (No.8) has a 2-window range:
2-light casements with 2 horizontal bars to lights on the top storey, 2 large-
paned sashes to the first storey; one canted bay to the ground storey, and a
sash window and 6-panelled door with raised fielded panels both under one cast
iron bracketed hood. All the other windows have cast iron heads and ornate
brackets. The cross-wing has various sash windows and casements. The
interior is of great interest, and contains fragments of the oldest framing in
Framlingham. 2 side walls on the first floor, one in the cross-wing, the
other the corresponding wall in the hall range, have the remains of multiple
bracing, characteristic of the early C14. The cross-wing had a crown-post
roof, but only the tie-beam of the truss remains. The main range was largely
rebuilt in the later C16, when the walls were considerably heightened and a
roof with one row of butt purlins and one row of clasped purlins with
windbraces was put on. The main components of this roof, which has evidence
of an original dormer, and must have had an attic floor, remain in the present
attic room: the house was heightened further when the C19 front was put on.
On the ground floor of No.8, the remains of a stud partition, with evidence
for 2 doorways, indicates a change in the layout of the house as a result of
C16 alterations. Both main range and crosswing have had further extensions of
more than one date: one rear wing, of 1½ storeys originally, has also been
