8/115 Dial Farmhouse -09/12/55


Former farmhouse, c.1530-50. 3-cell plan with lobby-entrance. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and pebble-dashed. Pantiled roof, once thatched; an axial C16 chimney of narrow pink/buff bricks. Mid C20 casements with transomes. Early C19 entrance door with 6 fielded panels, the upper pair of panels glazed. A fine timber-framed entrance porch of c.1500, believed to have been brought from a house at Mendlesham. Open, with heavy oak posts at front and rear, and plaintiled roof. The rear tie beam is moulded and embattled, and the front tie beam has vinescroll carving with a carved animal (perhaps a deer) at the centre and a freize of Tudor flowers below. The 4-centred arched doorway has small spandrels enriched with roses. Good quality framing is exposed throughout the house: close-studding with reversed arch windbracing and a blocked window with cavetto-moulded mullions. In the hall is a double-ogee moulded binding beam and roll- and cavetto-moulded joists. Coupled rafter roof. A very wide open fireplace with a deep lintel serves the hall and is probably inserted into the original cross entry. At the rear is a wing of c.1570 with good but plainer framing, and wind-braced clasped purlin roof.
