House on the Green
7.6.79 formerly listed as
The Green)


House. Late C15 open-hall, probably rebuilt in late C16 or early C17 reusing
existing timbers and incorporating a stack and floor to the open hall. Solar
range at West end, C16, is earlier than the rebuilding. A service bay to the
east end of the hall was demolished probably in C17. Timber framed, plaster
rendered and tiled roof, hipped at west end. Single range plan. The two
bays of the hall are wider than the three bays-of the solar range. Hall
range of two storeys with three modern casements at first floor and two at
ground floor. Similar windows to front wall. Rear wall has a four light
diamond mullion window at first floor and a later window, now blocked to the
east. Solar end also of two storeys with three modern casements to first and
ground floors. C16 doorway in four centred arch leads to cross-passage with
opposing rear doorway, still intact and now obscured by inserted staircase.
Interior: the rebuilt hall has a fine C15 roof reused in the later
rebuilding. Side purlin with moulded arch bracing to the collars and to the
paired wind braces. The principal truss is also moulded, though part of the
moulding is obscured by the brickwork of the chimney stack. Vacant mortices
and disturbed timbers indicate the rebuilding of the C16-C17. Inglenook
hearth of brick with broad stop chamfered lintel. Solar wing has crown-post
roof, with unmoulded posts and two-way bracing. The chamber over the parlour
has a raised tie beam truss and the main posts of this truss have carved
brackets on which are carried the secondary beams of the ceiling frame.
