HOMERSFIELD THE GREEN TM 28 NE 1/17 No.82 (Ivy Cottage) and - No.83


A pair of cottages. Late C17/early C18, with older core to part. 1½ storeys. Timber-framed; old render with the remains of lined panels. Thatch. An internal chimney-stack, which marks the division between the 2 cottages, with 2 diagonally-set square shafts linked by broaches to the rectangular base. 4 window range: old 3-light casement windows with pintle hinges, those on the ground floor with transomes. 2 slightly recessed plank doors in plain surrounds. A later end stack on the right, set within the frame. No.82, in 2 bays, has an exposed ceiling on the ground floor: joists unchamfered and set flat, main beam deep and narrow. Part of the front wallplate has mortices for earlier studding. This seems to be a fragment of an earlier building. Inside No.83 only main beams visible on the ground floor; an original part:ition wall has been moved. On the upper floor of both cottages widely-spaced studding, cambered tie-beams,and some reused timbers. The light-weight roof has 2 rows of butt purlins; in the end bay there are straight braces behind the purlins bisecting the common rafters. (Cf. Yeoman's Farmhouse, St. Lawrence Ilketshall).
