8/105 No. 40 Angle Cottage
Cottage. C16 origins, much rebuilt in C17. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings;
stone rubble stack topped with C19 brick and contemporary Rolle Estate chimney pot;
thatch roof.
Small cottage, once with a 2-room plan but now knocked into one, facing west onto
High Street. End stack in the left (northern) party wall and also a C19 lobby
projects forward from this end. Newel stair turret projects from right end of rear
wall C20 service outshot to rear. In fact this cottage appears to have been made by
the subdivision, probably in the C18 or ealy C19, of a larger house. This cottage
occupies the inner room of a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house, the hall,
passage and service room are now occupied by 38 High Street (q.v.) to the south. 2
Irregular 2-window front to right of the projecting lobby. The ground floor has a
C19 3-light casement and a C20 door to left. Above the window is a C17 oak 3-light
window frame with chamfered mullions, and above the door a C20 single light window.
All contain rectangular panes of leaded glass. The lobby has a C20 casement with
glazing bars in the side wall. The roof runs continuously with that over adjoining
38 High Street (q.v.) to right and butts the party wall of 42 High Street (q.v.) to
left. The thatch runs down continuously over the front lobby and rear newel turret.
Interior: the ground floor was a single room in the C17. The crossbeam is mid C17;
soffit-chamfered with double bar-scroll stops. The fireplace is blocked by a C20
grate. The roof is 2 bays and carried on a side-pegged jointed cruck truss. The
roofspace is inaccessible and the first floor ceiling plaster is old (probably C17)
being laid onto water reeds rather than wooden lathes. The only evidence of C16
work comes from the southern party wall with No.38. This is mostly plastered over
but from the roofspace next door the top of the closed truss principals can be seen
to be smoke-blackened. The truss was probably filled in the late C16 - early C17
when the hall fireplace (in No.38) was inserted since the plaster is not smoke-
Angle Cottage is one of an attractive and varied group of listed buildings in the
vicinity of the Church of All Saints (q.v.)
