WALSHAM LE WILLOWS BADWELL ROAD Thatched Cottage & The Thumb Bit

GV II

House, divided into 2. Early C17. Timber framed, with old comb-pargetted render. Thatched roof, hipped on right, gabled on left. 1½ storeys. One internal chimney stack with a large plain shaft of old brick, and an end stack, set externally on the left, with old brick laid in English Bond to the lower courses. One square-headed dormer with a 2-light casement window; horizontal glazing bars to lights. To the left of the internal stack one 3- light C20 metal casement window and one 2-light casement window with 6 panes to each light. To the right of the stack, one 2-light and one single light window, both casements, with 6-pane lights. Half-glazed C20 door in a lobby- entrance position. Thatched Cottage has only one ground floor room with plain joists set flat; no other timbering visible. The Thumb Bit (to right of stack) has plain joists set flat on the ground floor, and a main beam set on edge, which may indicate that there was a smoke-bay before the brick chimney. The present fireplace is C20, built forward from the face of the stack. On the upper floor, one tie-beam removed. In the gable end, housings for 2 adjacent 4-light diamond-mullioned windows. Exposed roof with clasped purlins. A single storey red brick lean-to along the whole rear.
