1. 1260 NORTHGATE STREET (West Side) Pykenham's Gateway and brick boundary wall TM 1644 NW 1/134 19.12.51. I GV 2. A C15 gateway attributed to William Pykenham, who became Archdeacon of Suffolk in 1471, Dean and Rector of Hadleigh in 1472 and who died in 1497. He also built the fine brick gatehouse called the Deanery Tower at Hadleigh. The initials W P were formerly om the gateway, and in one of the spandrels a fish, presumably a pike, although these have now been worn away. The gateway has a 4-centred arch and a 2-light 4 centred arched window with latticed leaded light, moulded brick mullions, hood moulds and chamfered reveals. The gateway has a crow stepped gable (rebuilt). At the rear a timber-framed and plastered wings extends to the west on the 1st storey, with exposed timber-framing and a 3 light mullioned window with arched lattice leaded lights. The gable is jettied on a moulded bressumer and the apex also projects slightly on a moulded bressumer. A small gabled wing extends south with a jettied upper storey and a 2 light casement window. A high brick wall extends south for about 70 ft. At the north end there is a small entrance with a 4-centred arch with shafts and capitals, and at the south end there is a large 4-centred arched carriageway. The north part of the wall now has a tiled capping and the south part has a sloping brick capping with brick dentils. All the listed buildings in Northgate Street except Garden Wall to No 9 form a group with No 43 (Great White Horse Hotel) Tavern Street, No 2 Great colman Street and Part of Nos 2 to 12 (even), St Margaret's Plain.
