BEDFIELD LONG GREEN
TM 26 NW
2/29 Ebenezer Cottage
-
- II

Former farmhouse. Circa 1500. Mid C20 renovation and rear addition. Timber
framed and plastered, half-hipped roof. 3-cell, cross-entry type. 2 storeys.
3 windows, mid C20 standard single-pane casements. Mid C20 plastered gabled
porch with panelled door. Internal stack and Cl9 external gable stack to
right. Interior. Modernised. Widely-spaced studding, mainly exposed on
upper floor. Part of one original first floor diamond-mullioned window (in
hall chamber) and evidence for others. 2-bay hall has apparently original
upper floor with plain joists set flat. Open truss over hall chamber has
cambered tie beam with solid braces to the wallposts, one end now cut through
for side passage. Coupled-rafter roof, with low purlins to support the hip.
All the roof timbers are sooted. The present stack is clearly a later
insertion but the previous heating arrangement is unclear. The parlour
ceiling has a large trimmed opening, immediately beyond the stack, presumably
for the passage of smoke. A tie beam above this, removed during the mid C20
renovation, may have been part of a smoke hood. Above the tie beam in the
upper end wall of the hall is a single central post which extends through the
present ceiling and is probably morticed into another tie beam at a slightly
higher level; the function of this arrangement is unclear.
