NHER Number:25245
Type of record:Building
Name:25, 27 and 29 Station Road


Three joined late 16th century timber-framed cottages with a later (1656) brick and flint gable and stack. The building was divided at the time the brick/flint gable was added, but is likely to originally have been a communal building, possibly a guildhall. The houses underwent alterations in the 18th and 19th centuries, including the replacement of lower parts of the timber-framing with masonry. The southernmost bay of no. 29 seems to have been added as an 18th century bay replacement/infill. A disused oven in number 27 was found to contain a 19th century ritual coin hoard.

June 2010. Historic building report.
A 27m long late 16th century communal building, possibly a late guildhall. The building is likely to have begun to be divided into domestic tenements in 1656, the date at which the brick/flint northern gable-end of no. 25 was added (displayed in brick on the gable). The gable-end and stack, incorporating a winding stair, extended the original timber-framed building which stretched south to include most of no. 29. No.s 25 and 27 have a jettied upper floor in timber frame supported on a masonry wall. The building may originally have been entirely timber-framed, and it is possible that this survives in the eastern elevation. Some of the original timber-framing was replaced in the 18th and 20th centuries, due to the installation of consecutive replacement roofs. Evidence of an abandoned and filled-in large, domed oven survives in the west side of no. 27. No. 29 was the largest compartment in the original building, but was divided in the early 20th century, at which point it is known to have included the post office. Internally, the timber-framed rear wall of no. 29 is brick-faced; this is due to be removed as part of a major refurbishment. The southernmost bay of this house is likely to have been added as an 18th century infill/bay replacement.
