TL 8422-8522 COGGESHALL MARKET END (south side)

9/139 No. 11 (part of The 2.5.53 White Hart Hotel) (formerly listed as Guildhall)


Part of house, now part of hotel. C15, altered in C16, C17 and 1971. Timber framed, plastered with some exposed framing, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main range of one bay facing N, with C20 stack at right end behind axis. 2-bay wing to rear left, and one-bay extension beyond. 2 storeys. Ground floor, one C20 bow window. First floor, one C18/early C19 splayed bay of sashes of 8-12-8 lights; to each side of it, a flank window with modern glazing; the left window has one ovolo mullion and one diamond saddle bar, the remainder blocked, the right window is complete, with 2 ovolo mullions and 3 diamond saddle bars. 2 C20 6-panel doors, each with a plain overlight. Early C19 continuous moulded fascia over doors and bow window. Mortices for former oriel window on first floor. Late C16 projecting feature gable with moulded bressumer, and some C20 replacement studding. Early C19 semi-conical street lamp attached to building with C20 wrought iron bracket. The ground floor has a C20 wide wood-burning hearth with C20 carved mantel beam, 2 chamfered longitudinal beams, unstopped, and plain joists of vertical section, many replaced. The first floor has a similar hearth. To left and right heavy studding is exposed, smoke-blackened but scraped; the framing to left has curved display braces trenched into the studs, structurally part of no. 9 (item 9/138, q.v.). The feature gable has been let into the front pitch of the original roof c.1600, severing some of the rafters. Traces of original red paint on the diamond saddle bars and window frames, mostly scraped. Queen post roof with 2 hollow- chamfered cranked tiebeams, each with 2 hollow-chamfered braces meeting in the middle. The braces of the left truss, against the wall of no. 9, are solid; those of the right truss have open spandrels, fully hollow-chamfered. Each truss has 2 semi-octagonal queen posts with moulded bases and caps (although one on the right disappears behind the stack) and 3-way rising braces, to cambered collars and upright purlins, all chamfered. In the middle of the roof is an original square vent for a ridge louvre, the bottom rails chamferd on the inside, blocked. This is a rare survival, meriting special care. An attic floor recorded by the RCHM has been removed in a major renovation of 1971, leaving stubs of the former beams. The rear wing and extension are wholly plastered internally, with no dating evidence visible. Known as Mavesons or Mabsons in the C16 (G.F. Beaumont, A History of Coggeshall in Essex, 1890, 129 and 232-3). RCHM 75.
