COMBS MILL ROAD, BATTISFORD TM 05 SW

5/83 Rookery House - - II Former farmhouse. Built in 2 stages: a C15 or perhaps late C14 range of 1½ storeys, and a range of 2 storeys and attics added 1752 as dated on chimney. Timber-framed and roughcast. Thatched roofs, the medieval section to left is hipped. Axial chimneys of red brick, that to right is inscribed with the initials ID above the date 1753 on a terracotta plaque. Mainly mid C20 small- pane casements. The left hand section comprises an altered open hall with service cell. The hall open truss is almost entirely missing, but there is a smoke-encrusted coupled-rafter roof. Very widely spaced studding for Suffolk, with reversed arch windbracing at the corners; a splayed scarf joint with under-squinted and sallied butts in the rear wallplate suggests a probable C14 date. An inserted C17 chimney backs onto the cross-entry. Mid C20 internal alterations. The C18 range is of 2 cells with back-to-back fireplaces; the hall is built on the site of the original parlour cell.
