  View of a half-timbered house near Market Hill, Framlingham, Suffolk, England  

An interesting half-timbered house just off Market Hill.

At the far end of the timber-framed building you may notice a large dark rectangle, not the one in the corner, which runs from ground level to what would be ceiling height. An explanation for this is given in the next photograph.

  Photograph of Queens Head Alley, Framlingham, Suffolk, England   The dark rectangle mentioned in the previous photographs is, as you can see, the entrance to Queens Head alley which runs right through the building.

I suspect that this building was once a pub although I have no evidence to support that view but it would explain the name of the alley.

  Scene showingJeaffreson's Well, Framlingham, Suffolk, England   Jefferson's Well.

This well was provided for the town by Anne Jeaffreson in 1896. The well itself is now capped with a concrete block seen on the floor inside the structure.

The dedication seen inside says "The funds for this water supply were promised by Anne Jeaffreson on Sept. 29th 1896 the week preceding her sudden death she gave the supply to Framlingham in tender rememberance of her dear father and mother William Jeaffreson and Caroline his wife."
