39. HAZELEIGH. (E.b.)
(1). Parish Church of St. Nicholas (Plate, p. xxxiii) stands near the middle of the parish. The walls are of plastered timber-framing and the roofs are tiled. The Chancel was built in the 16th century or perhaps earlier. The Nave was re-built in the 17th and 18th century but incorporates much material of an earlier date. The Vestry and South Porch were perhaps added at the same time.
(2). Hazeleigh Hall, house and moat, E. of the church. The House is of two storeys with attics, timber-framed and plastered; the roofs are tiled. The main block was built probably in the 16th century, and there are 17th-century and later additions at the back. Inside the building is some early 17th-century panelling and a door of moulded battens. The roof, of five bays, has curved wind-braces.
