SY 0684
8/103 No. 36 Philomel Cottage
Cottage. Early C17, modernised circa 1960. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings;
stone rubble stacks topped with late C19 brick and one has late C19 Rolle Estate
chimney pots; thatch roof.
2-room plan cottage with central staircase (now knocked into one ground floor room)
facing west onto the High Street. There is a service through passage on the right
(southern) end between this cottage and adjoining 38 High Street (q.v). The right
room has a rear lateral stack and the left room has an end stack in the party wall
there. 2 storeys.
2-window front of late C19 - early C20 casements with glazing bars; 3 lights to left
and 2 to right. Part-glazed C20 door between them and right end passage has no
door. Roof runs continuously with the neighbouring cottages although to left
(north) the eaves step up from Philomel Cottage to 38 High Street (q.v.)
Interior was modernised circa 1960 and most of the joinery detail, including the
stairs, date from then. Both fireplaces are blocked. The left room however has an
early C17 soffit-chamfered and step-stopped crossbeam and one side-pegged jointed
cruck roof truss is exposed on the first floor. The truss is of relatively slender
scantling and the roofspace runs continuously northwards over adjoining No.38 High
Street (q.v.) and the party wall between the two is a C17 oak frame with close-set
studs and cob infil.
This and the adjoining 34 High Street (q.v.) seem to be a pair of cottages probably
made by dividing a C17 or earlier house in the early C19. They also form components
of an attractive varied group of buildings, most of them listed, in the vicinity of
the Church of All Saints (q.v.).
