and the description shall be amended to read

Two cottages, now one. Possibly some C16 fabric, Cl7 with C18 and C19 modifications.
Cob, rendered, on stone plinth, thatched roof, some slate on outshut at back,

rooms to right and one to the left; later the left half was rebuilt, probably
late C18, with increased ceiling heights. Central room or hall with lateral stack,
original position of staircase uncertain. Two storeys, 5 windows: left half has
at ground floor a late C19 sash each side of a central doorway with panelled reveals,

Right half has a 3-light casement and plank door with set-in glazed light beneath
one 32-pane and one 24-pane cast iron casements. Two small brick stacks to gables,
and larger stack to back eaves. Back has swept down roof at left and slated outshut
to right.
Interior: left half has panelled reveals to ground floor windows, and fireplace
with Thorverton Stone jambs to wood bressumer to scroll stops; right half has deep
fireplace in Thorverton Stone, and wood bressumer, with two ovens. Toleft of
fireplace is chamfered beam, possibly of C16 (information from Rev. Peter Beacham);
spiral wood stair in corner of this main room. The early beam is positioned beside
the probable throughway, but the arrangement internally is not clear. Roof partly
inspected, principals partly exposed, detached from wall, and indicating an C18
