TM 27 SE
4/152 Nos. 1& 2, Russel's
12.2.86 Green Cottages
Former farmhouse, now 2 cottages. The smaller right hand cottage is
unmodernised. Late C16 with early C19 alterations. Timber framed and
plastered; at the front and rear the ground floor is faced in red brick.
Thatched roof. 2 storeys and attic. 2 ground floor 2-light casement windows
under segmental arches; 2 first floor 2-light and one single-light casements,
all C19. 2 C19 boarded doors. 2 early C19 external stacks, one at each gable
end. A good quality frame, mostly concealed in the left cottage. Evidence
for many original windows. In each gable is an incomplete 6-light mullion and
transom window with cavetto mullions (both blocked). Original newel stairs (2
flights). Intact roof: clasped and butt purlins, cranked wind-bracing,
evidence for original dormers. There is no clear evidence for the original
heating: presumably there was a stack set against the rear wall.
