Paycocke’s was acquired by the National Trust in 1924 (see NT website). It stands on the line of the old Roman road that passes through the village of Coggeshall in Essex. The timber-framed house dates back to the 16th century and was constructed for Thomas Paycocke.

The carvings on the exterior are particularly fine.
