- II

Former farmstead, named on the O.S. map as Green Farm, consisting of 2
separate ranges at right-angles to each other with a later linking section.
Early C16. 2 storeys. Timber-framed, with roughcast render and black glazed
pantiles. The east-west range has one end and one internal chimney-stack; 2-
light and 3-light casement windows with a single horizontal bar, transomes on
the ground floor, pintle hinges to 2 on the upper floor, the remainder C20
replacements; a C20 gabled porch extension in matching materials. Frame in 5
bays, including a bay for the internal chimney-stack; basic 3-cell plan.
Plain studding, reversed braces in the side walls, long arched braces to the
heavily cambered tie-beams; edge-halved and bladed scarf joints in the
wallplates. Blocked original windows with diamond mullions. A fine screen
with long narrow panels and chamfered stiles was moved from its original
position in the early C19 when one bay was adapted for a hallway and stair. A
wide chamfer and cut-off stops to the main beam continued down the main posts,
in the central room. The end chimney stack was added to the single service
room. Roof inaccessible. The north-south range has been extensively restored
from a semi-derelict state. An end chimney-stack on the south, set within the
frame; 2-light and 4-light C20 casement windows in traditional style, and one
replaced 4-light diamond-mullioned window; C20 plank door and double doors;
weatherboarded gable-end on north. Frame in 3 wide bays: surviving main beams
are chamfered with moulded heads to the main posts, joists plain, closely-set,
flat; tension braces in end and partition walls, cranked reversed. braces in
side walls; remains of several diamond-mullioned windows. The roof has been
renewed, but one tie-beam has mortices for queen posts. An original ladder
stair has been reset. This range may well have a medieval core.
