C19. Roughcast timber frame, brick outshuts at rear. Plain tile roof with gabled
ends, north range pantiles at rear, south range with ornate openwork bargeboards
with finials and pendants at apex. Brick gable end and lateral stacks.

Plan: The original cottage is north range set back on right of 2-room plan, the
larger left hand room heated from gable end fireplace, the right hand room probably
unheated originally. The right hand stack was added in early C19 when outshut was
built on front to extend the left room, outshuts were added at the rear and a large
2-storey and attic range was built forward on the left end with one principal front
room heated from a rear lateral stack and what appears to be an integral outshut at
the back.

2-storey and attic left range; 2-storey right hand range set back. 2:3 window east
front. C19 12-pane sashes on left in projecting range with flush-panel door in
right gable end with casements above. Right hand range set back, has outshut on
left with panelled and glazed door and 3-light casement; 3-light casements to right.
At rear the main roofs are carried down as catslides over brick outshuts, the south
range to right with large C20 flat-roof dormer.

Interior: Virtually unaltered since C19. The north range left roof has chamfered
axial beam with broach stop and chamfered joists, large fireplace with moulded shelf
and range with wide grate, ratchet pot-hanger and 2 small cupboards; section of
fielded panelling to right, the other walls matchboarded, rear wall has bench with
shaped end. The smaller right hand room has wide unchamfered joists. Chambers
above have exposed jowled wall-posts, wall plates and tie-beams; eaves raised and
roofspace ceiled. Early C19 south extension has plastered unchamfered intersecting
ceiling beams and simple early C19 pilastered chimneypiece in front room; panelled
and plank doors on first floor and exposed wall-plate in attic.
