Photographer's Note

More examples of pargeting from Saffron Walden.

This pargetted gable is over a carriage entrance at the former Sun Inn.
"Nicolas Pevsner identified the figures as 'Thomas Hickathrift and the Wisbech giant.' "

This particular decoration was applied to the walls in 1676.

Pargeting derives from the word 'parget', a Middle English term that is probably derived from the Old French 'pargeter' or 'parjeter' meaning to 'throw about', or 'porgeter' meaning 'to rough cast a wall'.

One more example in the w/s.

Thank you for looking.
