FEERING TL 8628-8720 Coggeshall Hall Farmhouse (formerly 2.5.53 listed as Coggeshall Hall in the parish of Coggeshall)


House. Circa 1575, altered in C18 and early C19. Mainly timber framed and plastered, with some weatherboarding and plum bricks in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing SW, with long-wall jetty and axial stack. C18 extension of one bay to left. Early C19 crosswing at right end, of plum brick, forming a T-plan and later entrance elevation. External stack to left of front part, enclosed by C19 single-storey lean-to extension. C19 single-storey lean-to extension of painted brick with slate roof to rear of main range, and C20 2-storey extension with flat roof to right of it, in angle of brick wing. 2 storeys, cellar and attic. SW elevation, ground floor, 3 tripartite sashes in main range, and in brick wing, late C19 splayed bay of sashes; first floor, one C19 casement, one late C19 sash of 3 + 6 lights, and 2 tripartite sashes in main range, and in brick wing one early C19 sash of 12 lights. One gabled dormer. Tall concertina stack. The fascia of the jetty is carved in grotesque style, exposed for most of its length, with plain brackets. At the left end a short section is underbuilt, at the right end it is concealed by the lean-to extension. SE elevation, 3-window range of early C19 sashes of 12 lights with plastered surrounds and crown glass. Central 5-panel door, the top 3 panels glazed, in portico with paired columns. Roof of this wing hipped. The rear elevation of the main range has scattered fenestration, including on the first floor 2 C19 horizontal sashes of 12 lights. The left return of the main range is weatherboarded on the ground floor only, and the rear of the C18 bay is clad with painted brick on the ground floor only. Jowled posts, curved tension braces trenched inside heavy studs. Left of the stack is an unusually long chamfered axial beam with step stops, and plain joists of horizontal section. Large wood-burning hearth facing left, blocked; complete bread oven with wrought iron door. Right of the stack the chamfered axial beam has a step stop at the left end, and a lamb's tongue stop at the right end; the joists are of horizontal section, chamfered with lamb's tongue stops. In the front wall are 3 original windows of early glazed type, each with one ovolo mullion and 2 diamond saddle bars, blocked. There are others in the rear wall, but these are early insertions. One at the head of the stairs comprising one ovolo mullion and 4 diamond saddle bars is a modern alteration; the weathered surface of the ovolo mullion now faces inwards. The roof of the main range is of clasped purlin construction, with arched wind braces. The C18 extension has unjowled posts and a roof without wind bracing. This house has an interesting set of features which makes it finely datable: (1) the combination of step stops with lamb's tongue stops, (2) the combination of original glazed windows at the front with inserted windows of similar type at the rear, indicating the increasing adoption of glazing, (3) the grotesque carving. Former oriel windows have been removed. RCHM (Little Coggeshall) 3. This building is on the parish boundary between Feering and Kelvedon, the greater part of it in Feering. (B.L. Kentish, Kelvedon and its Antiquities, 1974, 24-5).
