Thatched Cottage, Shepherds Green

Thatched Cottage
Shepherds Green

This is a timber-framed, two-bay lobby entry house with a central stack of probably early-mid C17th date, to which a further timber-framed, unheated bay was added on the south side; further extensions were added over time both to the north (with chimney) and at the back.  It has a thatched, long straw roof. Its framing is of slight timbers; its trusses are of the queen strut type.  It is located on the edge of Shepherd’s Green common; an area where also other small-holders cottages are found.
