Photographer's Note

Hello, today three pictures that demonstrate another characteristic of Tudor buildings, known as 'jettying'.

Jettying is a building technique used in medieval timber-frame buildings, in which an upper floor projects beyond the dimensions of the floor below.

It was very useful for enlarging floor space whilst giving maximum street width.
And it could also have been to shelter the lower walls from the weather.

Still in Saffron Walden, a very attractive market town.

Thanks for looking.
