Purton Green

Purton Green is an important example of a modest size thirteenth century house. It's a half-timber framed aisled hall house consisting originally of two bays with a central truss open to the roof. The house was re-discovered in ruinous state in 1965. In 1969 it was purchased by the Landmark Trust. The Trust has restored many historic properties and now let them as holiday cottages. There is modern accommodation to a very high standard, which is not shown in the photographs. For more information on the Landmark Trust you can view their web site at: http://www.landmarktrust.co.uk
