GV II

Three identical houses, now 2 dwellings, C15 with C17 alterations and C20 extensions. Timber-framed and rendered, with C20 pargeting and gabled continuous plain tile roof with L-shaped stack to south-east end and ridgeline stack near north-west end. EXTERIOR: one storey and attic; 4-window range; with C20 lean-to extension to No.13 and flat-roofed extension to No.15. 3 gabled dormers, each with a 2-light casement with central horizontal glazing bar. 2 small plate-glass windows beneath eaves. Ground floor has 2 entrance doors and 4 sash windows with moulded surrounds and 2 vertical glazing bars, also one small plate-glass window as above. Further stack on rear and 2-light casement in gable on north-west flank. INTERIOR: good timber-framing of C15 with jowled posts and remmants of simple crown-post roof. This provided 3 identical houses, each with an open hall and one service room, all of one storey only. Each cross wall had curved wall braces down from post jowls to a central stud, and some bracing survives. In the early C17 an inglenook stack with timber mantel beam and a floor with large stop-chamfered bridging joist and spine beams were inserted into No.15. No.13 had a floor inserted, of differing design, with broad central tenoned joists into a bridging joist, but with lambs-tongue stops (reused?). At this time a stack was added to this, south-east, end. The north-west end of the terrace has been truncated, but a reused rafter at this end has a secret notched lap mortice of the C13 or C14. HISTORY: probably a speculative development. The offsetting of braces to allow for a door is a detail also used in the Vicarage of the Church of All Saints, Church Walk (qv). The 3 cottages are probably part of the holdings of Wentworth Charity (1634). (Whites Directories: Whites Directory of Essex: 1848-).
