Listing Text

SY 08 SE
6/65 Nos. 1, 2 and 3 Bridge Cottages
- II
3 cottages. Formerly 2 houses. Mid C17, rearranged in C19 when converted to
cottages. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or brick stacks
topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
L-shaped building on corner of Exmouth Road and Dalditch Lane. The front block
faces south-east and is set back from Exmouth Road. The rear block is built at
right angles on the left end and projecting forward a little onto Dalditch Lane to
the south-west. The front block has a 3-room plan. No,1 is a 2-room plan cottage
at the right end and has a rear lateral stack. No.2 occupies the left room of the
main block which has a projecting end stack and the adjoining room of the rear
block. No.3 is a 2-room plan cottage with central staircase and rear lateral stack
in the rear section of the rear block. All 2 storeys.
Front block has an irregular 3-window front, 1 to No.2 of C19 casements with glazing
bars and 2 to No.1 of 1986 casements containing rectangular panes of leaded glass.
Between the windows of each cottage are the 2 doorways set side by side, a C19 plank
door to No.2 and a C19 4-panel door to No.1. The roof is gable-ended to left and
has a steep half hip at the right end. In the left end a C20 steel-framed casement
without glazing bars has been inserted on each floor behind the stack. The rear
block has an overall 4-window front of C19 casements without glazing bars and No.3
itself has a symmetrical 3-window arrangement around a central C19 6-panel door.
Interior is mainly the result of C19 refurbishment but here and there C17 features
show. More are probably hidden by C19 or indeed C17 plaster. The right room of the
front block (in. No.1) has a mid C17 crossbeam; soffit-chamfered with double bar-
scroll stops. Part of the party wall between No.1 and No.2 is exposed and is a C17
oak frame in which lathes are slotted into individual holes providing a ladder
backing for the cob infill. The roof here is inaccessible but the feet of the
trusses show suggesting that the C17 roof survives and comprises A-frame trusses.
In the rear block only the roof shows its C17 origins, a series of A-frame trusses
with pegged lap-jointed collars.
