ST9970 THE GREEN
755-1/5/148 (East side)
08/07/76 No.7

GV II*

House, divided into 2. Mid C15, altered C19. Roughcast
limestone rubble with brick gable stack and stone slate roof.
Single-room plan with a through-passage; parallel rear range,
connected by a C18 right-hand side range.
2 storeys and attic; 2-window range. A raised surround to the
left-hand doorway and panelled door, ground-floor 2-light
casement window, C19 two-light sashes on the first floor, with
a late C16 blocked 2-light stone-mullioned window with
reserved chamfers to the right. Side range has a gabled
lateral stack.
INTERIOR: details include a good mid C15 roof with 4 arched
braced collar trusses with threaded ridge, not
smoke-blackened, with wind braces to the middle register of
tenoned purlins, and a framed truss with doorway and wattle
and daub panels; rear range has later roof with chamfered
beams, and connecting side range later still, with 2 collar
trusses of c1700.
The first-floor has chamfered stopped lateral beams with deep
chamfers; C18 cupboard flanking ground-floor right-hand room
fireplace, also panelled shutters and wainscot; early C19
stair has stick balusters and column newels with a moulded
rail; a second stair between the 2 rear ranges on the right.
Rear ground-floor room has a very deep axial lateral beam, and
HL hinges to the door.
Formerly part of No.7 (qv), as an open hall house, with
through-passage. The gable has been rebuilt, and the chimney
inserted. One of the earliest domestic buildings in the
parish, and almost certainly originally a timber-framed
building, subsequently encased.
