EARL STONHAM FEN LANE TM 15 NW 5/95 Chapel Farmhouse - II Former farmhouse. Early C17 with core of late C15 or early C16. A much- altered 3-cell open hall house. Main hall range of 1 storey and attics, with C17 2-storey cross-wing to left. Timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roof with axial chimney of red brick, and gabled casement dormers. 2- and 3- light casements and boarded entrance door, all of c.1980. The central open hall is very depleted:- a pair of posts with fragmentary pilaster shafts once supported a missing open truss; evidence in the framing remains for a pair of arched service-room doorways. A floor was inserted over the hall and back-to- back fireplaces placed between hall and parlour, probably in late C16. Major C17 alterations include reconstruction of parlour cell to right, total reroofing with butt purlins, and a 2-cell cross-wing beyond the earlier service cell (the latter has many large members reused from the partial demolition of the mediaeval house). Remodelled c.1980. Listing NGR: TM1009358415
