ST 20 NW
Cottage made from part of a farmhouse. C16 and C17, modernised circa 1970.
Plastered local stone rubble, maybe including some cob; stone rubble stack topped
with C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan and development: 2-room plan cottage facing east and built down the hillslope.
Uphill at the right (north) end is a small unheated room and the left room has a
gable-end stack. In fact this cottage is the hall and unheated inner room from a C16
3-room-and-through-passage plan house. The former passage and service end room at
the left (south) end have been demolished. Since no internal inspection was
available at the time of this survey it is not possible to determine the early
development of the house. Nevertheless it seems likely that it began as an open
hall house, possibly heated by an open hearth fire. If so, the stack was inserted
and the rooms floored between the mid C16 - mid C17. 2 storeys with C20
conservatory on the left end.
Exterior: the front has 2 ground floor windows and 1 first floor window with thatch
eyebrow over; all are C20 casements without glazing bars. The roof is hipped to
right and gable-ended to left. The main doorway is in the left end behind the
conservatory and it contains a C20 door.
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey although it is
said to contain a great deal of C16 and C17 carpentry detail, including an oak plank-
and-muntin screen between the 2 rooms and roof structure of jointed cruck trusses.
