Listing Text

No.1 No.2 (Clover Cottage)


House, divided into 2 cottages. C16, with possibly older fragments. One storey and attics: 2-cell form. Timber-framed, encased in red brick, which is rendered and whitewashed on the front. Pantiled roof. An early C19 lean-to along the rear wall is built entirely of brick. Internal chimney-stack with a large square plain shaft of small Tudor red bricks. 2 3-light casement windows on the front, one with a single bar to lights, the other with square-leaded panes and pintle hinges. In the south end of the rear lean-to are 2 reused 2-light casement windows with diamond-leaded panes and pintle hinges. Plank door. The ground-storey room to No.1 has a heavily-timbered ceiling, main beam with chamfer and scroll stops, wide joists set flat, chamfered and stopped and very closely-set. The rear wall of the room seems to be doubled, with housings for a diamond-mullioned window in the outer part. On the upper storey, the tie-beam at the south gable end lies just within the gable wall, and suggests that the house may have originally extended further southwards. The slope of a rafter at right angles to the front range may indicate a former cross-wing. It is understood that No.2 (on north) has no timbers exposed inside.
