3/66 Northmoor Cottage
- II

Cottage. Mid - late C17, modernised circa 1960. Plastered stone rubble; stone
rubble stack topped with C20 brick; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: 3-room plan cottage facing south-south-east, say south. The original house
is the 2-room section at the left (west) end. The doorway was directly into the
larger left room which has a gable-end stack. Smaller unheated room to right. The
right end room (the present kitchen.) has been made by bringing into domestic use a
former byre outshot. It is not clear whether this was part of the original house or
secondary. 2 storeys with single storey sun lounge of circa 1960 on the left (west)
Exterior: 3-window front of C20 casements, some with glazing bars and others with
applied leading. The left-hand 2-window section to the original house is
symmetrical about a central doorway which has a C19 gabled porch with a glazed C20
door. This main door is now disused and a secondary door into the kitchen is now
used. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: the main room has a plain chamfered crossbeam. The fireplace is stone
rubble with a soffit-chamfered an scroll-stopped oak lintel and it contains the
blocked doorway of an oven in the back. Roof was not accessible at the time of this
survey although the bases of straight principals show on the first floor, probably
from original A-frame trusses.
