SCHEDULE
In the entry for:-
MONK SOHAM THE GREEN
TM 26 NW
2/147 Hill Farmhouse
- II

the description shall be amended to read:

Farmhouse. A late C16 2-cell range with later work, in 2 phases,
to rear (north); altered in late C20. Timber framed and
plastered, C20 pantile roof. 2 storeys; a former attic in main
range. Windows mainly C20 standard casements. One C16 ground
floor window with cavetto mullions. C17 2-storey porch with
slightly projecting gable; late C20 tiled pent roof on timber
posts. C20 boarded door. 2 stacks against rear wall of main
range. Interior: Hall ceiling has cross beams and chamfered
joists; the main bridging beam has been reduced in depth. Part
of this ceiling has been removed for a straight stair. Service
partition also removed. On the upper floor the service chamber
has exposed studding with cranked reverse-curved braces. Evidence
for wide original windows. The plaster ceiling of this room is
divided into a number of square and oblong panels with reeded
borders and decorated with incised patterns of foliage with
flowers, including vine, tulip, thistle and an ear of barley.
This work is difficult to date but may be of c1700. Roof with one
row of wind-braced clasped purlins. The rear addition to the
north east once extended further to the rear and is probably the
remains of a service wing. Formerly known as Monk Soham House.
