TL 57 SE WICKEN POND GREEN (North Side) 8/104 No. 15 (Butts Farmhouse) 1.12.51 (formerly listed as Butts Farmhouse)


House, originally a late C15 or early C16 open hall with service and parlour ends. In late C16 or early C17 the parlour end was rebuilt as a crosswing and at the same time the chimney stack was inserted into the through passage and the open hall was floored. Timber framed, part plaster rendered with a thatched roof of reed and a rebuilt ridge stack. One storey and attic. Two gabled dormers and two casements, all C20. The doorway to the lobby entry has a late Cl7 or early C18 door of two panels. The crosswing is also timber framed, part exposed, with brick nogging, some restored. Thatched roof of reed with plastered and coved eaves and a ridge stack. One storey and attics. Two C20 gable end casements. Interior. The late C16 or early C17 floor frame of the former open hall is only partially visible. The joists rest on clamps pegged to the studs and tenoned to the chamfered spine beam. They are laid on edge. In the room to the right hand of the hall, the floor frame is constructed in a similar way except that the joists are unmoulded, laid flat and are of substantial scantling. Inspection of the roof over the hall revealed two adjacent pairs of sooted rafters with vacant joints for collars to each pair, indicating that there had been a crown post roof before the present side purlin roof was constructed in the late C16 or early C17. In the crosswing the main beams and middle rails have C17 chamfers and stops. The side purlin roof is later than that over the hall range and is probably rebuilt.
