SO 74 07 FRAMPTON-ON-SEVERN THE GREEN (south side) 10/127 The Old House (Formerly listed as: THE GREEN (south side) East and West Gables) 9.12.86 GV II* Large detached house, formerly subdivided. Late C15, modified and floors inserted C17, further alterations C18 and front refenestrated c1830; major restoration c1990, low wing added to east and 2-storey wing to west. Exposed C17 box framing on six cruck pairs, exposed to east gable; rear in late C17 brickwork; plain tile roofs and brick stacks. Original 6-bay plan, with 3-bay hall, 2-bay service area and one bay solar to east; stack in first service bay added mid C16; hall floored mid C17, when east wing and stair added; west wing added c.1830. Two storeys, attic to rear wing. The front has 4 windows, with 3 large gabled face dormers, probably c1830, each with a 3-light pointed Gothick casement with leading, above similar 3- and 5-light casements. Each side of the main door is a small 4-light C17 window with diagonal wood mullions. The main framing is on a high rubble stone plinth, stepped up to 2 of the gabled bays. The left return has exposed framing, includinga cruck pair, with a 3-light casement to first floor and late C20 flat-roofed extension. Central 3 bays to rear wall has gabled full-height dormers, each with a 2-light casement, also at ground floor, with central door. The low gabled service wing has a casement, with a door on the return, and the higher wing has a small 2-light casement to the attic, above a C18 12-pane sash and a tripartite sash to the ground floor. INTERIOR: six cruck blades are variously visible at all levels; smoke blackening above hall and kitchen in former service area. Cross passage has stone flagged floor, chamfered arched wooden heads to doorways to hall and former service area, and early winder stair to rear right. Kitchen to left has large stop-chamfered beams and exposed chamfered joists, some replacements; wide fireplace with bressummer has bread oven, reputedly of c1690, with C19 cast-iron door and to right a deep recess with a splat fretted ventilator above plank door. Parlour has chamfered joists with bar stops, fireplace with stone cheeks and a deep replacement bressummer. The room in the wing has C18 panelling and detail. The winder stair has a short length of C17 balustrading with turned balusters to a square newel. C18 and C19 plank doors some with arched wooden heads which appear to have been resited. Formerly known as Advowson House, and set into the rear wall was a finely carved C16 stone panel depicting Susannah and the Elders, and referred to as the "Advowson Stone"; the current owners have photographs of the plaque, and are aware of a restoration made to it before its removal c1988 and their subsequent arrival. A median dendrochronological date of 1498 has been postulated for the crucks, some pairs of which are probably in black poplar.
