2/5 Nursery Cottage

- II

House, formerly divided into 3 cottages. C17, C18 and C19. 2 storeys.
Timber-framed; C19 front of painted brick; black glazed pantiles. 3-light
casement windows with a horizontal bar to lights and segmental arched heads to
frames and surrounds. The ground floor windows are larger than those above.
C19 enclosed and gabled porch; plank door with stained glass panel. One
internal and 2 end chimney-stacks, all with plain rebuilt shaft, band, and
projecting course at the head. 3 C19 gabled extensions at the rear relate to
the conversion into cottages. Plain timbers exposed inside; complex
development, with evidence of much alteration. The 2-bay central section of
the house is apparently the oldest, with the internal chimney-stack a later
insertion: plain joists, and a 4-light diamond-mullioned window on the ground
floor; plain queen-post roof above in 2 bays, with indications of a 3rd bay.
A wide straight Georgian stair was inserted beside the stack. At the left
end, a parlour and room above of slightly later date than the centre: joists
with chamfer and run-off stops; main beam with lamb's tongue stop and jewel;
fireplace at the gable end with timber lintel and C17 brickwork; an original
upper fireplace; diamond mullioned windows; roof with clasped purlins and
windbraces. A later section at the right end was roofed initially at a lower
level, with full principal rafters cut away for the insertion of clasped
purlins; a C19 roof on the same level as the rest of the building was fitted
