Cordwainers, Lavenham (2)

Cordwainers, Lavenham (2)
Lavenham is a well preserved medieval wool town, famed for its blue broadcloth between the 14th &16th centuries, accommodating many antique shops and tea rooms. It is noted for its 15th century church, and half-timbered medieval houses. In the medieval period it was among the 20 wealthiest settlements in England.

Standing on the corner of High Street and Market Lane and painted Suffolk Pink, Cordwainers (listed as "Cordwinders") was built in the late 15th century. It was originally the One Bell Inn, but, as the name implies, was later a home/factory for shoe-makers. From the front, it appears almost normal, although, from the side, one has to wonder how it still stands.

Many of these old half-timbered houses(of which there are dozens in Lavenham) were built using green wood and, over the years as the wood aged, the buildings became distorted and out of alignment.
