TM 26 NE
6/70 Green Farmhouse
- II

2 farm cottages, originally a farmhouse. Fragmentary medieval core, otherwise
mainly C16. A 3-cell main range with later rear addition to left. To right
is a C16 service range, originally just detached from the main range and
extending to the rear, now linked by a one-storey C20 addition. Timber framed
and plastered with pantiled roofs; glazed black pantiles to service wing. 2
storeys. Various C19 and C20 casement windows. Right cottage has C19 6-panel
raised and fielded door (the upper 2 panels glazed), left cottage a half-
glazed door. Internal stack and gable stack to right. Interior of main range
much altered in C19-C20 with little of the frame exposed. The cross partition
between hall and service cells is of medieval date: the portion visible in the
roofspace has partial sooting and a tie beam housing, in such a position to
suggest it was the end wall of an open hall with a cross-wing beyond. The
roof over the hall and parlour has butt and clasped purlins with 2-way cranked
wind-braces. Service cell has irregular heavy joists visible on ground floor,
the first floor and roof structure of C18 date. 2-cell service range:
substantial floors with plain joists; queen-post roof. The gable stack is
probably a C17 insertion. Interiors not fully examined.
