- No.83


A pair of cottages. Late C17/early C18, with older core to part. 1½ storeys.
Timber-framed; old render with the remains of lined panels. Thatch. An
internal chimney-stack, which marks the division between the 2 cottages, with
2 diagonally-set square shafts linked by broaches to the rectangular base. 4
window range: old 3-light casement windows with pintle hinges, those on the
ground floor with transomes. 2 slightly recessed plank doors in plain
surrounds. A later end stack on the right, set within the frame. No.82, in 2
bays, has an exposed ceiling on the ground floor: joists unchamfered and set
flat, main beam deep and narrow. Part of the front wallplate has mortices for
earlier studding. This seems to be a fragment of an earlier building. Inside
No.83 only main beams visible on the ground floor; an original part:ition wall
has been moved. On the upper floor of both cottages widely-spaced studding,
cambered tie-beams,and some reused timbers. The light-weight roof has 2 rows
of butt purlins; in the end bay there are straight braces behind the purlins
bisecting the common rafters. (Cf. Yeoman's Farmhouse, St. Lawrence
