- Green Farmhouse
Farmhouse, c.1500-1530. 3-cell plan, originally with cross-entry. 2 storeys.
Timber-framed and plastered; the first floor is long-wall jettied towards the
green with chamfered knees beneath the jetty. Concrete plaintiled roofs; a
C16 chimney of red brick, the shaft partly rebuilt in C20. Early C19 small-
pane sashes; at ground storey are two early C19 French windows, each pair
having pointed arches formed by the upper row of glazing bars. C20 boarded
entrance door with oblong fanlight, at lobby-entrance position. Good early
C16 framing; heavy unchamfered floor joists, close-studding with blocked 4-
centred-arched cross-entry doorway. A blocked window in the hall has one
roll-and-cavetto mullion, and a blocked but complete window in the parlour has
chamfered square mullions. Crownpost roof: chamfered square crownposts with
2-way braces; the open trusses have short thick 4-centred arch-braces. Set
forward to left is a service cell with heavy plain framing of late C15 type;
this may be a building demolished and re-erected here in C16/C17. Widely-
spaced studding and tie-beams with massive arch braces. Both ranges had
hipped roofs until given gables with clasped-purlins by c.1600.
