Formerly known as: Hay Green Farm Cottages HAY GREEN LANE.
House. C17, extended in C18 and C19. Timber-framed,
weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays
facing N with central stack, extended by one bay at each end
in C18. 2 storeys. Original lean-to stair annexe to rear, and
C19 lean-to to rear of it, of red brick roofed with red clay
pantiles. C20 conservatory to left of stair annexe. C19
single-storey lean-to at each end, the left roofed with red

INTERIOR: the timber frame includes much elm and some reused
oak. Unjowled posts, primary straight bracing. Chamfered axial
beam in each bay; plain joists of vertical section in all but
the bay to left of the stack. This bay has a reused axial beam
with empty mortices for studs, and reused joists of horizontal
section, chamfered with lamb's tongue stops, and some plain
joists of square section. The axial beam in the left bay is
also reused, with step stops. Most of the studded partition
between the 2 ground-floor rooms to right of the stack has
been removed; 2 sharply curved timbers have been introduced
since 1960. The right hearth has been re-bricked; it contains
an introduced cast-iron fireback dated 1622; the left hearth
is blocked. Original boarded and ledged pine door at foot of
stair. Boarded and ledged oak door between 2 ground-floor
rooms to left of stack. In the rear wall on the first floor
are 2 large original apertures for glazed windows, blocked.
The upper right room has original wallplates and end tie-beam
approximately one metre above floor level, and others aligning
with the remainder of the house. The scarf joints in the
wallplates of the original house are of unusual face-halved
type. Queen-post roof incorporating some smoke-blackened
rafters from a medieval hall.
This was built as one house, extended to form 2 similar
cottages with shared stack, now one house. Photographs in the
possession of the owner show that the present windows were
installed before 1960. Shown in estate map of 1832. The
lean-to at the left end was being altered at the time of
inspection, February 1989.
