3/52 1 & 2 School Cottage

- II

House, now divided into 2 cottages. Mid to late C16. 2 storeys and attics:
basic 2-cell lobby-entrance plan. Timber-framed and rendered with thatched
roof. The internal chimney-stack has a plain rebuilt red brick shaft. 2 old
3-light small-paned casement windows to each storey, one on the upper floor
with diamond leading to the 2 outer lights. A small single-light window on
the upper floor above the former porch. The original lobby-entrance doorway
has been blocked; one entry is now into a small lean-to porch on the left,
rendered, with clay pantiles and plank door, and the entrance to the right
hand cottage is in the side wall. To the left of the stack, the 2-bay ground
floor room has a low exposed timber ceiling with wide plain joists set flat
and a large main beam with chamfer and stepped curved stops. The timber
lintel of the open fireplace has ovolo moulding on the soffit. A timber
partition, with primary braces and bisected studs, divides off part of the
area to form a kitchen, and was probably inserted in the early C19 when the
house was divided into cottages. Similar timbering to the ground floor of the
right hand cottage.
