Full description

Upper Green Farm.
Timber framed house, probably early 17th century, of very unusal plan. It has an ornate 'parlour' with its own stack at one end and a putative kitchen at the other and a central room and off centre stack in the middle. The first floor seems to have an original corridor, as at Gunton House Reymerston. Attached crosswing may not be of any great age. Much altered around 1960.
