TL 72 NE GOSFIELD THE STREET (WEST SIDE) 7/190 Sparrows. (Formerly listed as Bridge House) 21 6 62


House. C16 or earlier origin with later alterations and additions. Timber framed and plastered with exposed framework and some painted brick. Red tiled roof, hipped to left with forward gabled crosswing to right. Three red brick chimney stacks, that to left external those to right with square attached shafts. Two storeys. 3:1 window range of C20 square leaded vari-light casements. Gabled red tiled porch with timber support posts and vertically boarded door to left return of crosswing. Much exposed frame internally. The main range was originally jettied to first floor and the rear crosswing probably with a crown post roof. Now of side purlin roof structure with arched braces to purlins. Jowled storey posts, stop chamfered beams and cambered tie beams. Halved arch braces to some walls. Two inglenook fireplaces, one with semi- circular arch to first floor room. There has been confusion in the past about the original name and listing of this house. The RCHM 11 description - Bridge House - obviously fits this house and not the present Bridge House q.v. 7/189.
