7/97 Lakes Cottage and Lukes
Pair of houses. Not necessarily of the same build but probably dating sometime from
mid C17 to early C18. With C18 and C19 additions. Rendered cob and rubble walls.
Gable-ended thatch roof. 4 brick stacks - 1 at each end and 2 axial.
Plan: each cottage was probably initially of 2-room plan but Lukes to the right has
appropriated the right-hand ground floor room of Lakes Cottage. Probably C18 dairy
wing behind right-hand room of Lukes and C19 wing at rear of Lakes Cottage. C19
lean-to between the wings.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Lakes Cottage to left has asymmetrical 3-window front of mid
C19 9-pane sashes on 1st floor and early C19 12-pane sashes below with C19 panelled
and glazed door at centre under gabled doorhood. Lukes has asymmetrical 4-window
front of late C19 and early C20 2 and 3-light casements with C19 panelled and glazed
door to left of centre under similar doorhood.
Interior: neither cottage exhibited early features but some may well survive under
later modernisations. Roof structure is unlikely to be earlier than later C18 and
consists of rough straight principals.
