CREETING ST. MARY ALL SAINTS ROAD TM 15 NW (NORTH SIDE) 5/53 Meadow Cottage - - II House, mid C16 with C17 alterations. 1 storey and attics. 2-cell lobby- entrance plan. Timber-framed and rough-cast. Thatched roof, half-hipped at left-hand end, with thatched gabled small-pane casement dormers. Small-pane C19 and C20 casements. C20 boarded entrance door with open C20 pantiled lean- to porch. The 3-bay C16 nucleus is at the left-hand end. A good example of base-cruck construction, of a type found in central Suffolk in the mid C16. Substantial plain framing: at the left-hand end is a pair of base-crucks tied at the head beneath the half-hip, tension-braced and with evidence for a diamond-mullioned window (c.p. Oak Cottage, Little Stonham, Item 2/141). 2 similar open base-cruck trusses, one being central over the hall chamber and arch-braced, the other against the axial chimney and unbraced. The closed truss at the right-hand (service) end was altered in C17 but was probably fully hipped without base-crucks. Heavy unchamfered floor joists and arch wind-braced studwork. Coupled-rafter roof. A wide lintelled open fireplace in the hall. The service cell was extended to right by one bay in C17. An early example of the lobby-entrance plan form, in which the second cell contained an unheated service room.
