Merchant's house, dating from c.1500
This fine half-timbered house is evidence of the wealth generated by the East Anglian wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries. It contains unusually rich panelling and woodcarving. Coggeshall was also famous for its lace, examples of which are displayed inside the house. There is a very attractive cottage garden
Name and credits for images of Coggeshall: Paycocke's
