5/201 Nos 5-8 inclusive, Club
Row of 4 adjoining cottages. Mid C19 but incorporating the remains of a
probably early C17 house. Flemish bond brick, tile-hung to the first floor
with bands of ornamental tiles; peg-tile roof; brick stacks.
Plan: An east-facing range, Nos 6 and 8 double-fronted. The principal rooms
are heated from end stacks and shared axial stacks. Nos 5 and 6 have a circa
early C17 core. The plan of the C17 house has been obscured by new partitions
but No 6 appears to include most of the parlour or hall of a framed house with
originally unheated service end to the north. Part of the hall or parlour is
included in No 5 which also incorporates what seems to be the left (south) end
frame of the early house.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Roof hipped at ends. Asymmetrical 1:2:1:2 window
front, Nos 5 and 7 with porches to the right. Identical porches to each
cottage with hipped peg-tile roofs on rustic posts, the porch of No 8 has been
filled in but the C19 posts survive. The cottages all preserve their C19
plank and cover strip front doors and original C19 windows: 2-light casements
to the first floor, 3-light. to the ground floor, each with 2-panes per light,
except No 8 where 3 of the windows are C20 replacements.
Interior: Nos 5 and 6 inspected. These retain some probably C17 joists to
the ground floor rooms and an open fireplace (half in each cottage) with
chamfered stone jambs and a scroll-stopped lintel. Some of the original wall-
framing survives on the first floor. Wall posts with jowls support a clasped
purlin roof with wind braces. No 5 includes a queen strut arrangement.
These cottages form a group with Nos 1-4, a detached row immediately to the
