HICKLING THE GREEN
25.9.79 Bowling Green
Cottage. Timber frame probably late C17 with a wing of C18 (north
end) and later C19 (south end). Timber framing with later brick
infill panels part rendered. Brick wing. Pantile roofs. End
stacks to wings, truncated ridge stack to timber-framed part.
T-plan, the timber framed part being the leg to the east. Two
storeys. The timber framed part is box-framed and has an original
doorway on the south side. On the north side is a lead fire insurance
plaque which shows a wheatsheaf and reads "FIRE LIFE, FARMER". There
is a later ground-floor window on each side. The east gable apex is
in later brickwork and contains a segmental headed window. The
extended wall plates on this gable suggest that the building once
extended for a further cell in this direction. The roof of this wing
appears to have been raised.
Interior: the timber frame appears to extend into the wing giving a
third room, a complete frame with bracing can be seen at 1st-floor
level in the north wing. The original baffle entrance from the south
is set against the central fireplace which has a bressumer on 2 heck
posts and a short heck screen on the south side only. The bressumer
supports a complete tapering firehood visible in the room above.
Behind the fireplace is a passage staircase with framed sides. Many
of the timbers are stop-chamfered. On the 1st floor is an early plank
door with longitudinal moulding. The north wing contains some re-used
timber including a studded partition and a bressumer across the north
end forming a kind of smoke bay.
Deeds of 1830 refer to "the former licenced premises" indicating the
building's former use as a public house.
