A type of timber-framed building, dating from the 15th century; many surviving examples are concentrated in southeast England. The Wealden house has a distinctive design in which the central open hall is flanked at both ends by multi-storeyed wings; in the purest examples the end storeys are jettied at the front, while the central compartment is recessed. Many of these houses were built by yeoman farmers or householders from the lower to middle end of the social scale.
