Details

FRAMPTON-ON-SEVERN THE GREEN SO 7407-7507 (west side) 10/131 Manor Farmhouse (formerly included under The Green, East Side) 10.1.55 GV I Manor farmhouse, traditionally the birthplace of Fair Rosamund Clifford in 1144 but earliest part to south east corner probably early C15. Remainder of main house mostly early C16, with early C17 or late C16 wing to north. Ashlar ground floor to main house, with close studded timber-framed upper floor mostly with S-shape bracing, stone slate roof. South east wing in large panel framing, north wings in square panel on ashlar plinth only. Rear faced in brick above ashlar and left hand return to east also with brick outer wall. Very large external stacks to south in ashlar, and to east with brick above ashlar base and 2 very large square flues with decorative caps. North wing also has 2 large brick flues with decorative caps. Originally a 3-sided courtyard plan, with service wings to north on ashlar plinth forming U-shape, main part of house having rear wing to left as oldest section, jettied gable to front on left and 2-storey projecting porch to right. Mainly 2 storeys and attic. Ground floor has two 6-light stone mullions with arched lights, king mullions, releaded early glass and square hoodmoulds with pentagonal stops. Narrow wooden arched lights to first floor. Jettied end to left has moulded wood bressumer as does jetty on porch to right which has arched opening with square hoodmould, inner stone seats and double vertical battened doors with horizontal cross planks to inside. Service wing to north has scattered fenestration including one early 6-pane wooden light to far right. South east wing also jettied to east and with arched wind bracing in roof, originally with small internal spiral stair lit by small stone lights and reached by very small pointed archways on each floor, with door still existing on ground floor, said to be the part connected with Rosamund. Interior generally retains much of the original timber-framed walls and doorways and has 2 fine stone fireplaces on each floor to the external stacks. Hall to left of porch has plain moulded Perpendicular fireplace and C16 arms of Codrington family in glass to left. Parlour to far left has very unusual carved fireplace, thought possibly to have a religious connection and to have come from elsewhere. Very large low chamfered arch to north end of north wing, probably originally the kitchen range.
