2/75 Ashwood and Ashwood Cottage
2 cottages, originally one house. Circa early C16, altered in C17, extended and
converted into 2 cottages probably in C18. Rendered rubble and cob walls, exposed
at rear of Ashwood Cottage. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Rendered rubble
axial stack to Ashwood and similar originally lateral stack to Ashwood cottage.
Rendered brick gable stack to Ashwood and small rendered possibly rubble gable stack
to Ashwood cottage.
Originally 3 room and through-passage house, probably with hall at least open to the
roof, jettied chamfers over inner room and lower room/passage may or may not be
original. Hall ceiled in early C17 when front lateral fireplace was added. Galbe
end fireplace to inner room. Extended at higher end and probably converted into 2
cottages at that time, divided at the upper end of the hall. Probably C19 outshut
added at the front of Ashwood Cottage.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical front. Ashwood Cottage projects at the right-hand side.
Ashwood to the left has 3 window front of probably early C20 1, 2 and 3-light
casements on first floor with small panes. On ground floor is similar C19 2-light
window at centre with C20 2-light casement to right and single light to far left.
To left of centre the wall is recessed slightly and there is C20 panelled door under
gabled porch. Outshut against left gable end.
Ashwood cottage has C19 outshut built against front wall with 3 windows. Left-hand
window is early C19 16-pane hornless sash. To its right is small C20 fixed light
with single light C20 casement to far right. C20 stable door to right of centre.
Single storey C20 extension to right of outshut.

Ashwood cottage has a C16 plank and muntin screen at the higher end of the hall with
chamfered muntins and mason's mitres to the head-beam above. The base has rotted.
According to the owner there is a concealed internal jetty above the screen
consisting of projecting joists. The hall ceiling has 2 substantial chamfered cross
beams with hollow step stops. To either side of the upper beam are similarly
decorated joists. At the lower beam the ceiling level drops and it is likely that
this is another internal jetty. The decorated joists formerly continued across the
passage and there was probably another screen at the lower side of the passage. The
former lower room has 2 cross beams, the upper one of which is chamfered with ogee
stops. In the former outside wall of the lower room at the front are 2 blocked 2-
light wooden mullion windows.
