TL6001 THE GREEN 723-1/15/48 (North side) 20/02/76 Laurences (Formerly Listed as: BRENTWOOD THE GREEN, Blackmore (North side) Laurences)


Formerly known as: Poplars THE GREEN. House. Early C17, incorporating a fragment of a medieval house, extended in C18 and C20. Timber-framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays facing SW, with central stack, incorporating part of the parlour/solar bay of a medieval house in the right bay. C17 one-bay wing to rear of stack. C18 extension to right, on site of medieval hall, with external stack at end. C20 single-storey lean-to at left end and along rear to C17 wing. Rear wing to right, c1985. EXTERIOR: 2 storey. 4-window range of C20 metal casements, C20 door and bracketed canopy. C18 facade with modillioned cornice and parapet, and C20 pargeting. Grouped diagonal shafts on main stack, rebuilt. The right stack has a string course just above eaves level, and in the right face a recessed panel above, with a flat brick arch and a band across. INTERIOR: the right ground-floor hearth of the main stack has a chamfered mantel beam with mitred stops and 0.33m jambs, and a salt recess of which the shaped head is crumbled away. The entire timber frame to right of this is plastered over, up to roof level, concealing its historic character. The left ground-floor hearth is blocked. To left of the stack the only exposed timber is a deeply chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops. The main roof is of joggled butt-purlin construction, with reused medieval rafters, smoke blackened and trenched for former collars; but at the right end it incorporates three and a half undisturbed medieval rafter couples, the last couple only being smoke blackened. It is likely that some medieval timber structure survives below this level, concealed by the plaster. The roof of the rear wing is also of joggled butt-purlin construction. The roof of the right extension is ridged, of clasped purlin construction. There is an arched recess inside the right stack at roof level, possibly for a former hearth; the arch is severed.

Images of England

Images of England was a photographic record of every listed building in England, created as a snap shot of listed buildings at the turn of the millennium. These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
