cottages were united circa 1970. Plastered cob, maybe with no footings; cob or
stone rubble stacks with chimneyshafts made of C20 concrete blocks, thatch roof.

end stacks. The present cottage has been made by uniting a pair of contemporary
mirror-plan tiny 1-room plan cottages. In each originally a narrow space across the
back was partitioned off for service use. 2 storeys with secondary outshots each

with pegged and spiked lap-jointed collars. The original common rafters are short
lengths of wavy branches, one set above the purlin and another below, but each is
Honeysuckle Cottage is a remarkably well-preserved pair of tiny cottages.
