EARL STONHAM FORWARD GREEN
TM 15 NW
5/109 Green Farmhouse
Former farmhouse. Late C15 core with extensions of early C17 and C18. 1
storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof with C20
eyebrow casement dormers. Axial and gable chimneys of red brick; the former
rebuilt mid C20, the latter added in C19. Mid C20 casements and boarded
entrance door with open plaintiled porch on posts. The left-hand section
comprises a C15 open hall, of which the roof and upper walling are almost
complete. The open truss has an arch-braced tie-beam with a cross-quadrate
crownpost (two braces removed). Close-studding in end walls. Moderate smoke-
blackening. Twin arched service doorways are believed to be concealed in the
gable wall, demonstrating the loss of the service cell. Over the former
parlour cell is evidence for a roof hip with a fragment of gablet which has
had a bonnet to aid extraction of smoke - a rare survival. A heavy upper
floor with exposed chamfered joists was inserted late C16 into the hall, with
an open fireplace against the parlour cell. The latter was rebuilt in C17,
and an extension added in late C18/early C19 to right.
