MORETONHAMPSTEAD COURT STREET (south side),
8/109 No. 3
Cottage, probably part of No. 1 (q.v.) to left (east). Probably C15 or early C16,
floored in circa early C17 and remodelled in circa early C19. Stuccoed granite
rubble. Asbestos slate roof with gabled ends abutting adjoining buildings Nos. 1
and 5. Large granite stack with thatch weatherings and moulded cap at right-hand
Probably the higher end of a 3-room plan house of which the hall and lower end were
No. 1 (q.v.), the rooms divided by low screens and therefore this part was open to
the roof as well. Floored in circa early C17 when stack was built at higher right-
hand end with stair turret to side. Partitions put in circa early C19 when made
into separate cottage but present partitions probably C20. The right-hand doorway
in front of stair creates lobby.
2 storeys. 2 window asymmetrical range. First floor a late C18 or early C19 2-and
3-light casement with glazing bars. Ground floor circa early C19 canted bay with
slate roof and 3-light casement without glazing bars. C19 2-light casement at
centre and late C19 half-glazed door to right.
At rear facing Pound Street, a small square stair window to right and another small
narrow window at centre under eaves, both with old timber frames. C20 metal frame
casements at ground floor centre and first floor right. Doorway to right with C20
Interior: 2 roof trusses, one over centre, the other in party wall with No.1 (q.v.)
to left. Principals morticed at apex, straight collars, dovetail lap-jointed and
side pegged. 2 tiers of purlins, centre truss threaded left (east) truss trenched.
All small-blackened. Only the feet of the centre truss can be seen in first floor
room and they are possibly jointed crucks. The east truss is closed but the
plaster is clean.
2 crossbeam over ground floor room with ovolo and fillet moulding and double bar
stops. The west beam is a half-beam against a chimneystack with a blocked
fireplace. Rounded shaft to turret at left of stack with C20 stairs inserted.
This is one of only 4 or 5 in Moretonhampstead town with medieval smoke-blackened
roof timbers. Medieval roofs are rare in towns.
