- II
House, formerly a pair of cottages. Late C18 - early C19. Plastered local stone
and flint rubble, the front plaster lightly incised as ashlar; stone rubble stacks
with plastered chimneyshafts; thatch roof.
Plan: the house faces west. Originally it was a pair of contemporary mirror-plan
cottages. Each former cottage had a smaller unheated inner room and outer room with
projecting gable-end stack. Both had a central fornt doorway but that to the former
right cottage has now been blocked. The 2 cottages were united in the C20. 2
storeys.
Exterior: 4-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. Each former cottage
had a 2-window front arranged about a central doorway. The right doorway is blocked
and the left doorway contains a C20 part-glazed door behind a contemporary thatch
roof porch on plain posts. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: is largely the result of C20 modernisations although the basic layout
(and structure) is preserved. No beams are exposed. The left fireplace is
plastered stone rubble with a chamfered date lintel, the right fireplace has been
rebuilt. Roof not inspected.
