9/87 Grange Cottage
House. Circa 1500 with early C17, mid-C19 and mid-C20 alterations. Timber-
framed with painted brick infill on limestone rubble base with rendered brick
and rubble replacement walling and refacing. Thatched roof with brick ridge
end stacks. Originally a cruck hall house of two framed bays aligned north/
south with chimneys inserted internally at each end, probably in C17, and since
partially rebuilt. Single storey and attic with dormer. Framing: two rows of
panels from sill to wall-plate. Former cruck at north end altered and
reconstructed as collar and tie-beam truss in C17. South end entirely rebuilt
in brick. East front elevation: windows are all C20 casements. There are two
3-light windows on the ground floor and an eyebrow dormer with a pair of 2-light
windows. The main entrance to right of centre has a porch with a flat canopy
on timber posts and a C20 half-glazed door. Attic light at north gable end.
Interior: the central cruck truss survives although the lower section of the
eastern blade is missing. The northern bay has an inserted C17 ceiling and a
large fireplace which was blocked in the C19. The open hearth was probably
situated in the upper southern bay; the ceiling in this part is of C19 date.
The east window in the south bay appears to have originally been of similar
size as part of the former frame is visible.
