7/200 Thorney Green Cottage

-- II

House, built in 2 stages; early C15 and early C17. Originally an open hall
house, of which the service cross-wing remains; but the hall was virtually
rebuilt in C17. 2 storeys and one storey with attics; a C17 bakehouse range,
(set forward to left) was detached until C19 and was partially in separate
occupation at date of survey. Timber-framed and roughcast. Thatched roof,
the cross-wing is hipped at the front. An axial chimney of C17 plastered
brick in the main range; the bakehouse has an axial C17 chimney whose upper
shaft is rebuilt of C19 red brick; a further external gable chimney also of
C19 red brick. Mainly C19 small-pane casements, some renewed in late C20.
C20 boarded entrance door at side. The C15 cross-wing has complete framing: 3
bays; the two service rooms were united in C17 to become a heated parlour. At
1st storey is an open truss with cambered tie beam and thick 4-centred
archbraces; coupled-rafter roof. Widely spaced studding with both arch and
tension windbraces. One of a pair of 4-centred arched service room doorways.
In the hall range only a few smoke-blackened rafters remain of the original
roof, but a wallplate has a splayed scarf with undersquinted butts of possible
C14 origin. There is believed to be an arched cross-entry doorway concealed
by the later chimney. The form of the cross-wing indicates that the house
faced east when built. Back-to-back open lintelled fireplaces of C16/C17. In
C17, the 1st floor of chamfered joists laid flat was inserted in the hall and
a clasped-purlin roof added. Blocked diamond mullioned windows of both C15
and C17.
