2/40 George Cottage


Detached cottage formerly an inn. Probable C17 cruck frame, with C18 walling
and later extensions. Mostly timber-framed, with one remaining pair of jointed
crucks; brick and flint walling colourwashed on all but front elevation; long-
straw thatched half-hipped roof; brick chimney stack. Single-storey with attic;
4 bays. Modern timber casement windows, 2-light bay 4 and the remainder 3-light,
with small 2-light attic window over bay 3; between bays 3 and 4 projecting
timber and glazed porch having brick and flint base and hipped thatched roof.
West gable rendered and plain; east gable has angled bay window with felted
flat roof, with 2-light casement over. Rear elevation has projection to match
at east end, then a mid-C20 felted flat roofed extension along remainder of
length, with timber casement windows. Interior plain, but central room shows
clearly the cruck truss between bays 2/3, and the curbed windbracing to
(presumably) original purlins; original collar removed and larger modern beam
inserted at lower level.
