The Gatehouse, Down Hall, Abington Pigotts. Early 16th century; timber-framed. Listed Grade II*. The formal listing description is an exemplar of the language of heritage conservation: ‘Substantial timber-frame, close studded with curved tension braces in each bay. Bullnosed jetty joists and solid curved braces to posts. Curved chamfered braces to doorway and cartway forming a ‘Caernavon’ arched head…Crown-post roof; crown-post over central truss, braced two ways to collars, and collar purlins.’ Alternatively, a lovely display of aged timber.
