TL 5663 SWAFFHAM PRIOR HIGH STREET (East Side) 15/174 No. 45 Shadworth House


Cottage, possibly an open-hall with the stack and floor inserted in early-mid C16. In C18 the cottage was subdivided and a side stack added at the rear. Restored c1977 but retaining some of the original features including inglenook hearths, moulded beams and part of a partition wall. Timber-framed on brick or clunch sill with red pantiled roof, raised at rear. Internal stacks of C19 grey brick. At the right hand there is a gablet and a hipped roof over what was originally a shop. One storey and attics. Four C20 cat-slide dormers. Short flight of steps with C19 iron railing leads up to doorway flanked by two windows, one bowed and early C19. Two other windows include one similar bowed window. Inside. The centre bay has a ceiling with hollow and roll moulding to a main beam. Several joists and middle rail forming a cornice. The other joists are replacements. A partition wall between the centre bay and an end bay has exposed framing and suggests that this wall is earlier in date to the floor frame. There is a continuous centre post in the hall. The construction is similar to that of Well House, Swaffham Bulbeck also possibly an open-hall.
