EARL STONHAM BLACKSMITH'S LANE TM 06 SE 1/84 - Water Run Farmhouse - II

Former farmhouse; circa 1600, incorporating part of a late C15 or early C16 house. 2 storeys. 3-cell cross-passage entrance plan. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof with axial chimney of red brick. C19 and C20 small- pane casements. Boarded entrance door. To left is a substantial 2-bay C15 solar cross-wing with massive framing: arch-braced studwork with a blocked diamond-mullioned window and evidence for others with square mullions. Very heavy unchamfered upper floor joists. A blocked doorway, formerly with an arched head, led into a hall once standing to left of the present house. A strongly cambered arch-braced tie-beam at the open truss. The roof was of coupled-rafter form until replaced with a butt-purlin roof in C18. The front gable of the wing was originally jettied. Circa 1600, new hall and parlour cells were built with good plain framing; close-studding and side-purlin roof. The earlier wing then became the service cell; in C18 the coupled-rafter roof was replaced by a butt-purlin roof in line with the main range.
