WAWNE MEAUX LANE TA 03 NE 10/60 Abbey Cottage, Tippett Lane - II

House. C13 origins; considerably remodelled in C16 with C18 roof and C19 side outshut. Coursed rubble with freestone dressings and quoins, brick, pantiled roof. 2 storeys, 2 bays, with single-storey outshut to right.

Ground floor: three C20 two-light openings with mullions and boarded shutters to ground floor, two 6-pane sashes to first floor. End stacks, plain close verges. Rear elevation: C13 chamfered door jambs to left under rebuilt segmental head. The left and rear elevations have a chamfered plinth: in addition the left elevation has a C13 string course with filleted roll moulding at eaves level. Interior: massive brick stack serving 2 inglenook fireplaces with chamfered bressumers to right: apparently a C16 insertion, this was intended to heat not only the surviving building but also its extension to the east now visible only as footings. There is a bread-oven which can be seen as a pilaster buttress on the front elevation.

Herringbone brick work to hearths. From the inside it can also be seen that the C20 ground-floor windows have been inserted into larger 4-centred openings. There is a series of massive, chamfered, primary joists. Disused and derelict at time of resurvey. This building is the last surviving structure of Meaux Abbey, founded in 1150, of which considerable earthworks remain in the immediately surrounding area.
