Chinkell Cottage

- II

House. Early to mid c17 with later alterations. Squared, coursed lias with
some dressed stone details, thatched roof. Stone coped south (L.H.) gable with moulded
kneelers. Two brick gable end stacks. Single storey and attic. Three gabled
dormers to front: a large central dormer with a brick ridge stack and a smaller
dormer to either side, all with applied timber framing in the gables, and said
to have been added in 1902. A stone gabled dormer and an eyebrow dormer at
rear. The eaves level is raised and front and rear walls heightened by several
courses. Three unit plan with entry at left of right hand unit. Evidence of
a second doorway into left hand unit. Irregular two and three-light timber
casements with leadlights, all under concrete lintols replacing timber except
for a two-light stone mullioned casement with ovolo moulded frame to left in
the central bay. A similar stone mullioned window to each floor of the south
gable end wall, now blocked. A single light stone framed inglenook window at
north end of front. Irregular one or two light wood framed casements at rear
under timber lintols.
Internally on ground floor chamfered bridging beams with moulded stops in all
rooms. Inglenook fireplace with timber bressummer and bread oven in north room,
stone framed fireplace with moulded jambs and arch in south room, salt cupboard
to right. South attic room has chamfered principal rafters and collar tie as
exposed truss members and chamfered purlin with straight wind braces, indicating
that the room was the principal upper chamber. Roof framing exposed in other
attic rooms. Brick single storey extensions at north and south ends of house not of
special interest. The house is said to have contained two or three cottages,
but probably a single dwelling in c17.
