2/93 The Thatch Cottage

Cottage. Maybe C18 origins, probably early C19. Timber-framing on brick
footings, clad with painted weatherboarding; C19 brick stack and chimneyshaft;
thatch roof.

Plan: 2-room plan cottage ornee facing north. Axial stack between the 2
rooms. Larger room to right is the parlour with stairs rising in rear outer
corner (apparently replacing one rising alongside the stack). Kitchen to left
with entrance hall behind and doorway in left end wall. Integral outshots to

2 storeys with single storey outshots.

Exterior: Front has 2 ground floor and one first floor window, 2 windows each
floor in the left and one each floor in the right end. Most are C20 casements
and some contain diamond panes of leaded glass. However the ground floor
front window and the first floor windows each end are original casements with
iron glazing bars featuring a Gothick pattern of trefoil-headed panes.
Doorway in left end contains a 2-flap plank door behind a thatch-roofed gabled
porch on plain posts. Roof is gable-ended to right, half-hipped to left and
to rear is carried down over the outshots.

Interior: Shows plain carpentry detail. Some of the framing is exposed;
relatively slender scantling with straight down braces. 2-bay roof is hidden
by later plaster but some straight wind braces are exposed.
