Description

This information is taken from the statutory List as it was in 2001 and may not be up to date.

The following building:-

WICKHAM MARKET HIGH STREET TM3055-3155 (west side) 5/37 No 64, The Manor House GV 16.3.66 II

shall be upgraded to Grade II* (star) and the entry shall be amended to read:-

TM3055 WICKHAM MARKET HIGH STREET (west side) 5/37 No 64, The Manor House GV 16.3.66 II*

House. Early and mid C16, in 2 main phases, with later rear additions. Timber-flamed and plastered, the roof plaintiled at the front and pantiled at the rear. A rear lean-to is slated. Brick ridge stack to far right and lateral stack to rear left. Cross-passage plan with hall to right and parlour to left. 2 storeys, with a continuous jettied front carried on leaf-carved brackets.

3-window range, 2- and 3-light casements, each light with a single slender horizontal glazing bar. Central cross-passage doorway, the door with 6 sunk bolection-moulded panels, the centre 2 glazed. Interior: The house has a complex development, with early C16 hall cell, and to left of cross-passage, a mid C16 parlour which replaced medieval work. The hall has ogee-moulded ceiling beams and wall posts, and knee-braces with high quality foliage-carved spandrels. There is a good in situ plank and muntin screen with moulded and embattled head and original wide central 4-centre arched entrance off the cross-passage. The fireplace lintel has defaced embattled decoration. Adjacent to the stack is a carved 4-centre arched doorway; this led into an earlier parlour cross-wing, sold off at an early date and now mostly within No 66 (qv). A small part within No 64 has a fully-moulded ceiling beam. Against the rear wall is some oak panelling of c1600, and there is a C18 corner cupboard. The hall chamber has good close studding and evidence for at least one oriel window. The open truss is in the form of a cambered tie beam with braces meeting to form a 4-centred arch. It carries a square crown post with moulded base and embattled cap, its 2-way bracing to the collar purlin missing but the roof timbers otherwise intact. The parlour ceiling beam and wallposts have multiple roll mouldings with cut-off leaf stops. Above is some good exposed framing and a plain crown-post roof. A lean-to behind the parlour has a fireplace with fine roll-moulded lintel with central shield carved with the initials RW, for Robert Wingfield, Lord of the Manor c1538. This has been reset, and probably came from the parlour.
