ST 10 NE
6/61 Shelve Cottage
- II
Cottage. Mid - late C17 origins, rearranged in the C19. Plastered local stone
rubble, maybe with some cob; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick;
thatch roof.
Plan: 2-room plan cottage facing south. The right (west) room has a gable-end
stack and the left room has an axial stack. C20 single storey kitchen extension on
the left end is narrower and is a rebuild of a former outbuilding. The right room
is a C19 extension and it seems that once the C17 house extended further left
(east). 2 storeys with single storey kitchen extension.
Exterior: house has a 2-window front of C20 casements without glazing bars. The
main front doorway is central; that is to say, at the right end of the wider C17
section, and there are secondary doorways at the right end and into the kitchen
extension. All contain C20 doors. Main roof is gable-ended and the left gable-end
is weather-boarded.
Interior: in the main room, the C17 part, the large fireplace is plastered with an
oak-framed front. The crossbeam is made up of 2 sections. The longer front section
is chamfered with scroll-nick stops each end. This might suggest that there was
originally an axial partition in the room with a narrow dairy or buttery to rear.
The roof over this room is 2 bays and carried on a clean side-pegged jointed cruck
truss and there is another similar truss buried in the end wall.
