- II

House. Probably early C15, remodelled C16 and C17. Cruck-framed. Coursed
limestone rubble; left bay, former smithy-outbuilding and early C19, is
weatherboarded; gabled C20 shingle roof, hipped to left; stone end stacks. 3-bay
hall remodelled and now 3-unit plan with former smithy-outbuilding to left. One
storey and attic; 3-window range. Hood moulds over C17 three- and 4-light
chamfered stone-mullianed windows, and over C20 three-light casement to left;
C20 gabled roof dormer. Timber lintel over C20 double-doors to front of left
bay, 3-light leaded casement above hood mould over early C17 three-light
chamfered stone-mullioned window to rear. 1953 rear extension. Interior: full
cruck trusses with collars, through purlins and saddled apex. In left bays open
to the roof and formerly smithy, an open fireplace with bressumer.
Stop-chamfered beams of inserted floors. Smithy Cottage may originally have been
a barn and converted at an early date to a hall-house. The central bay may have
been floored C16 and a possible former smoke-hood may be of this period. The
right-hand bay was floored C17 when stacks added and walls remodelled. (A. Pacey,
Duck End: a group of Oxfordshire houses (privately published) 1985, p.59).
