Paycocke`s House (Coggeshall)

Paycocke`s House is an exceptionally fine house in the attractive little town of Coggeshall in Essex.

It stands in West Street, part of the Roman Stane Street leading to Colchester.

The house was built about 1500 for Thomas Paycocke, the chief clothier of the town, and is one of the most attractive timber framed gouses in England.

It has five bays facing the street, and a number of oriel windows. A carved frieze has Paycocke`s initials.

Paycocke`s House is now in the care of the National Trust.
