SY 09 NW
5/46 Walkeys Cottage

Cottage. Late C18 - early C19, probably late C17 - early C18 origins. Modernised
in 1987. Plastered stone rubble; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 brick; thatch
Plan: 3-room plan cottage facing north. There is a parlour at the left (east) end
and a kitchen at the right end, both served by gable-end stacks. The doorway
probably once led into a passage but now enters the kitchen. There is an unheated
central service room. Although the cottage appears to be late C18 - early C19 the
layout suggests a late C17 - early C18 central service room plan house. 2 storeys.
Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 3-window front of C20 replacement casements;
all round heads and the first floor ones have thatch eyebrows over. The front
doorway is right of centre; it has a round-headed arch containing a late C18 - early
C19 plank door. The gabled slate-roofed porch was built in 1987; it has a round-
headed arch containing a plank door in imitation of the original behind. The main
roof is gable-ended.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but some
plain late C18 - early C19 carpentry detail was seen. The kitchen fireplace is
stone rubble with an oak lintel and contains an oven; it may be earlier.
