CALNE ST9970 THE GREEN 755-1/5/148 (East side) 08/07/76 No.7 GV II* House, divided into 2. Mid C15, altered C19. Roughcast limestone rubble with brick gable stack and stone slate roof. Single-room plan with a through-passage; parallel rear range, connected by a C18 right-hand side range. 2 storeys and attic; 2-window range. A raised surround to the left-hand doorway and panelled door, ground-floor 2-light casement window, C19 two-light sashes on the first floor, with a late C16 blocked 2-light stone-mullioned window with reserved chamfers to the right. Side range has a gabled lateral stack. INTERIOR: details include a good mid C15 roof with 4 arched braced collar trusses with threaded ridge, not smoke-blackened, with wind braces to the middle register of tenoned purlins, and a framed truss with doorway and wattle and daub panels; rear range has later roof with chamfered beams, and connecting side range later still, with 2 collar trusses of c1700. The first-floor has chamfered stopped lateral beams with deep chamfers; C18 cupboard flanking ground-floor right-hand room fireplace, also panelled shutters and wainscot; early C19 stair has stick balusters and column newels with a moulded rail; a second stair between the 2 rear ranges on the right. Rear ground-floor room has a very deep axial lateral beam, and HL hinges to the door. Formerly part of No.7 (qv), as an open hall house, with through-passage. The gable has been rebuilt, and the chimney inserted. One of the earliest domestic buildings in the parish, and almost certainly originally a timber-framed building, subsequently encased.
