HELMINGHAM IPSWICH ROAD TM 15 NE 4/92 Nos 92, 93 and 94
Terrace of 3 cottages, subdivided from an early C16 3-cell open hall house with late C16 alterations. 2 storeys, partly with attics. Timber framed and plastered. Pantiled roof probably once thatched, with axial chimney of red brick rebuilt in mid C20; an internal end chimney of C19 to right. C20 casements. Each cottage has a half-glazed C20 panelled entrance door; at No.93 also with a pantiled-roofed porch. No.93 contains the former open hall; No.94 the service cell; and No.92 the parlour cell, which was probably rebuilt in late C16 or C17 (not examined). The open truss of the hall has an arch- braced cambered tie-beam, hollow chamfered; at the base of one arch brace there survives a finely carved pilaster shaft, the upper half polygonal with a moulded capital, and the lower half in the form of a buttress with sunk traceried panels. Good close studding. In late C16, an upper floor was inserted in the hall, with closely spaced chamfered joists. The roof was rebuilt in C17 with principal rafters and purlins.
