1. STANSFIElD Purton Green Farmhouse

TL 75 SE 7/422


A mediaeval timber-framed aisled hall house which could be dated as early as the late
C13. The 2 storey bay at the north end, with service area on the ground storey and
solar above, is a replacement of the C15. The 2 storey bay at the south end was
added in the C16 and had a fireplace which was demolished when the building was
restored by the Landmark Trust in 1971 Only the fine carved lintel remains.
The exterior has exposed studding with plaster infill. At the north and south
ends the upper storey is jettied on exposed joists. The heavy boarded and ledged
doors are restored and the windows are partly original and partly restored, with diamond
mullions. The hall has scissor-brace roof trusses, the original timbers are smoke
blackened. At the north end the staircase is restored in its original form with
solid steps of quartered oak. Roof thatched, hipped. This house is of outstanding
importance as one of the earliest framed houses in Britain.
