TL 96 SW ROUGHAM THE GREEN

5/42 East low Hill Farmhouse
-
30.3.73
II

Former farmhouse. C15, with later additions. One-and-a-half storeys; 3-cell
basic plan, with extensions at both ends. Timber-framed and rendered, with
thatched roof; a C19 red brick gable end on the west. An internal chimney-
stack with a small plain red brick shaft. Mainly C20 2-light standard
casement windows; one old 3-light fixed window at the west end. 3 gabled
dormers, and one large eyebrow dormer above the porch. An enclosed C20 gabled
porch, rendered and plaintiled, with diamond-leaded panes to windows, and a
plank door. Inside, the former open hall was in 2 bays, the upper bay longer.
Little remains of its features: the tie-beam of the open truss has been cut
away, and the roof appears to be of good-quality coupled rafter type. The
chimney-stack, with one hearth, was inserted in the lower bay of the hall in
the C16, leaving the original cross-entry behind it. The inserted ceiling
over the hall, of the same date, is of very good quality, with ogee-moulded
main beam and joists. To the right of the stack, the medieval service area
has had all features concealed; a C17 extension beyond it was evidently for a
dairy. At the other end of the house, where the partition wall between the
hall and the parlour has been opened up, a one-bay late C17 extension was made
to the parlour. This has a ceiling of reused roll-moulded joists from a
jettied building.
