Buckley Hill Cottage
Buckley Hill Cottage is a detached cottage, formerly two cottages with outhouse, dating from at least the C17.
MATERIALS: The building is rendered and whitewashed with a weatherboarded eastern gable, thatched roof and brick stacks.
PLAN: The ground floor of the building consist of four rooms aligned east-west with a modern projection to the north containing the stairs.
EXTERIOR: The building is of two storeys with a curved south façade which directly fronts the street, and an irregular north elevation facing the garden. The west elevation contains an inserted canted bay to the south and a doorway within a modern extension to north.
INTERIOR: The ground floor contains an inglenook fireplace within the sitting room and a C19-style fireplace in the living room. The first floor is arranged on different levels but has been modernised throughout.
HISTORY: Buckley Hill Cottage dates to the C17 or possibly earlier. The building is present on the first (1889) Ordnance Survey map occupying a larger footprint than the current building on the site. This footprint extends further to the east and the building was divided into two properties. A stone rubble outhouse was attached to the east of the building which was demolished in the 1970s.
