Details

TM 07 SW WALSHAM LE WILLOWS THE STREET (NORTH SIDE)

3/67 Nos. 1,2 & 3 Guildhall 15/11/54 (formerly listed as Guildhall, Church Street)

GV II

A row of 3 cottages, formerly 4, but originally a single building. C16. Timber-framed and weatherboarded; plaintiled roof, hipped on left, gabled on right. 2 storeys: 6 bays. 2 internal red brick chimney-stacks, one C16 with 4 attached rectangular shafts set diagonally on a rectangular base, the other later with a high plain square shaft: both appear from inside to be insertions. Various 2-light and 3-light C20 casement windows, some small- paned; 4 plank doors, irregularly spaced. A fire insurance sign on the upper front wall. High quality very heavy timberwork inside: exposed ground-floor ceilings have main beams with 3"-4" chamfers and triangle stops; wide closely- spaced unchamfered joists. At the west end (part of No.1) one bay has the remains of a characteristic service-end arrangement, with evidence for doorways, dividing partition, and the slide for a blocked window on the rear wall. Exposed studding also in this one bay, the studs very closely-spaced. On the upper floor, tie-beams without braces, roof with principal rafters. This is a puzzling building said on documentary evidence to be a rebuilding on the site of the former parish guildhall, but, from the quality of the structure, more likely to be a conversion of the Guildhall building itself.
