Details

EARL STONHAM SCHOOL LANE, FORWARD GREEN TM 15 NW 5/119 Forrold Cottage - - II

House, early or mid C16 in 2 stages. 2-cell lobby-entrance plan. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered. Hipped thatched roof, with axial C17 chimney of narrow gault bricks with sawtooth shaft. Mainly C19/C20 casements, some with leaded lights. Boarded entrance door in pantiled lean-to C20 extension. A complete and unusual house, with a 2-bay hall with queen-post roof: the open truss has square queen posts on a cambered tie-beam, the post-heads jowled with archbraces up to a collar and to in-pitch purlins. The front wall has a middle rail, and a blocked 4-centred arched entrance doorway into a lobby; the rear wall is without either a middle rail or a doorway. Large back-to-back C16 fireplaces to hall and parlour. The parlour cell was rebuilt mid or late C16 with coupled-rafter roof. Both cells have massive framing, with unchamfered floor joists (in the hall the deeply chamfered binding joist has pyramid stops), arch-braced studwork and diamond-mullioned windows (one has been glazed in C20). An early example of a 2-cell lobby entrance house; the original second cell would have been a small unheated service room (c.p. Garden Cottage, Stonham Aspal, Item 5/180).
