723-1/13/179 (East side)
04/09/85 No.13
(Formerly Listed as:
The outbuilding at the Green Man
Public House)


Small house attached to NE corner of Green Man Inn (qv). Early
C15, C17, C19. Timber-framing and brick, steep peg-tiled,
hipped roof with gablets to E and W. Plan rectangular with
half length timber-framed out-shut on N side, roof carried
over as a catslide. 2 storeys. N side elevation, E-W, ground
floor out-shut with rendered wall, C19 casement window with
glazing bars, 2x2 panes, C19 door of boards with beaded edge,
brick corner pilaster for strengthening. W end elevation,
timber-framing replaced by rendered brickwork. Single ground
and first-floor C19 windows with bead moulding, both 2-leaved
casements with glazing bars, 4x3 panes. E elevation, lower
part red brick, blocked first-floor window aperture. S
elevation obscured by later building.
INTERIOR: considerably plastered over and roof ceiled in, but
central truss for 2 bays on first floor (partly cut away for
door) has posts with short pronounced jowls, one steep,
elegant, arched brace still rises from S post fillet to
cambered tie-beam. All members are carefully chamfered. On
ground floor blocked mortices show site of small arched braces
at central truss from storey posts to binding joist. Peg
evidence shows stud frequency to be wide, approx 0.64m between
centres. C17 reconstruction includes the insertion of a timber
lintelled fireplace on S side. Above, the central truss storey
post now sits on the lintel beam. Some wall studding also
replaced by primary braced system and partitions erected on
both floors to create front and back rooms. Ground floor
partitions towards rear, first floor one on central truss.
Floor boards in front bay of first floor are up to 0.5m wide
and are possibly original. The building is a cross-wing of a
medieval hall house, probably the `high' end. The hall has now
gone but appears to have been on the S side. There is some
evidence of there having been windows on the exposed N side.
Also, to the S, the rebuilt units at the rear of the Green Man
appear to still follow the shape of an `H' hall house with
hall and then a further cross-wing which although now brick,
contains C17 timber-framing. It has been suggested (listing of
1985) that the building may have been a detached kitchen.
There is no visible evidence to suggest this and the upper
interior exposed timber is clean and un-sooted. The building
has dropped at both the E and W ends and this is the probable
reason for the replacement brickwork. The front W bay is
shorter than the back and was most probably jettied
originally, being reconstructed back to the shorter ground
floor length. Also, the W front hip of the roof was probably
built at the same time. No.13 forms a group with No.11 the
Green Man Inn.
