BASCHURCH C.P. SJ 42 NW - 12/3 Claypit Hall 27.5.53 - II Farmhouse. Early to mid-C17 with later additions and alterations. Timber framed with painted brick infill (some in herringbone pattern), rebuilding and additions painted black and white in imitation. Painted brick plinth and slate roofs. Original house a T-plan comprising hall range, probably in 3 framed bays, with gabled 2-bay cross-wing projecting to west.

Queen-strut truss with 4 vertical struts from tie beam to collar and projecting single-purlin ends.

Similar framing to east wall of hall range to south of C19 addition but rebuilt in brick to north; gable to centre, cut by C19 addition, suggests that there was an earlier range projecting to east at this point.
