1480/5/10 6 ORFORD CLOSE 15-NOV-1966 (North side) LAWSON'S FARMHOUSE AND ATTACHED GARDEN WALL (Formerly listed as: BRIDGE STREET LAWSON'S FARMHOUSE AND ATTACHED GARDEN WALL)

II House. Mid/late Cl7. English garden wall bond brick with slate roof. Baffle-entry plan with 2 rooms wide, 2 deep and 2 storeys. Twin-gabled 2-bay elevation with door to right below segmental-arched head. Raised lozenge band at first floor level. Two 3-light casement windows on each floor with segmental brick arches. Chimney stacks to right and left returns which retain original horizontally sliding sash windows. The right return has a deep stone plinth. It is partly obscured by a later lean-to addition. Interior: massive ovolo-moulded ceiling beams and bressumer beam over inglenook fireplace; all have unusual raised broach stops. A large plasterwork panel in the principal room is based on a bush bearing various fruits, acorns, etc. all in deep relief probably dating from early C17. Of a similar date is a first floor panelled partition and cupboards. Staircase with heavy turned balusters, closed string and square newels. Evidence would suggest that the structure is a rebuilding of an earlier house parts of which survive or have been reused. A contemporary garden wall with round-topped coping stones adjoins the front of the house.
