TQ6291 CRICKETERS LANE, Herongate 723-1/13/179 (East side) 04/09/85 No.13 (Formerly Listed as: HERONGATE CRICKETERS LANE The outbuilding at the Green Man Public House)


Small house attached to NE corner of Green Man Inn (qv). Early C15, C17, C19. Timber-framing and brick, steep peg-tiled, hipped roof with gablets to E and W. Plan rectangular with half length timber-framed out-shut on N side, roof carried over as a catslide. 2 storeys. N side elevation, E-W, ground floor out-shut with rendered wall, C19 casement window with glazing bars, 2x2 panes, C19 door of boards with beaded edge, brick corner pilaster for strengthening. W end elevation, timber-framing replaced by rendered brickwork. Single ground and first-floor C19 windows with bead moulding, both 2-leaved casements with glazing bars, 4x3 panes. E elevation, lower part red brick, blocked first-floor window aperture. S elevation obscured by later building. INTERIOR: considerably plastered over and roof ceiled in, but central truss for 2 bays on first floor (partly cut away for door) has posts with short pronounced jowls, one steep, elegant, arched brace still rises from S post fillet to cambered tie-beam. All members are carefully chamfered. On ground floor blocked mortices show site of small arched braces at central truss from storey posts to binding joist. Peg evidence shows stud frequency to be wide, approx 0.64m between centres. C17 reconstruction includes the insertion of a timber lintelled fireplace on S side. Above, the central truss storey post now sits on the lintel beam. Some wall studding also replaced by primary braced system and partitions erected on both floors to create front and back rooms. Ground floor partitions towards rear, first floor one on central truss. Floor boards in front bay of first floor are up to 0.5m wide and are possibly original. The building is a cross-wing of a medieval hall house, probably the `high' end. The hall has now gone but appears to have been on the S side. There is some evidence of there having been windows on the exposed N side. Also, to the S, the rebuilt units at the rear of the Green Man appear to still follow the shape of an `H' hall house with hall and then a further cross-wing which although now brick, contains C17 timber-framing. It has been suggested (listing of 1985) that the building may have been a detached kitchen. There is no visible evidence to suggest this and the upper interior exposed timber is clean and un-sooted. The building has dropped at both the E and W ends and this is the probable reason for the replacement brickwork. The front W bay is shorter than the back and was most probably jettied originally, being reconstructed back to the shorter ground floor length. Also, the W front hip of the roof was probably built at the same time. No.13 forms a group with No.11 the Green Man Inn.
