Former farmhouse to Green Farm. Mid and late C16. 2 storeys; basic 2-cell
lobby-entrance plan, in 5 bays, with a service bay added in the late C16, and
a further mid-C20 extension, both at the south-west end. Timber-framed and
roughcast-rendered; plaintiled roof. 3-light and 2-light C20 casement windows
in traditional style. C20 porch and door. The internal chimney-stack has a
plain shaft of Tudor red bricks. Good studding exposed inside, with a middle
rail and cranked reversed braces, those in the side walls very large. In the
parlour, the main beams and joists both have multiple roll-mouldings; in the
hall, a main beam with plain chamfer and cut-off stops, and shaped post-heads.
One 3-light original window with mullions of octagonal section, and another
very small original opening, with a small bar only. The main part of the

collars, very thin braces; common rafters apparently renewed. The added later
bay has a much-altered clasped purlin roof.
