Cottage. Possibly C16 origins remodelled in late C17 or early C18, modernised and
extended in late C20. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof, hipped to left
end half-hipped to right. Axial brick stack.
Plan: original plan not entirely clear - only 1 room surives but it may once have
been larger. If, as the present owner states, smoke-blackened roof timbers survive,
then the house must once have had an open hall with central hearth and such a house
of 1-room plan would be a very unusual survival. The other surviving internal
features suggest a late C17 or early C18 date and it is possible that a very modest
mouse would not have had its open hall ceiled and a stack inserted until this date.
Modernised in late C20 and extended at left-hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys apart from 1 storey addition at left-hand end. Asymmetrical 2-
window front of late C20 2 and 3-light casements. Late C20 plank door towards
right-hand end. Single storey former C19 slate roofed outbuilding attached to
right-hand end with plank door.
Interior: fireplace has rough wooden lintel. 2 late C17 or early C18 roof trusses
are visible consisting of straignt principles with lapped and pegged collars. 2
more substantial plastered over curving trusses survive at each end to which access
is not possible but which according to the owner (referring also to the comments of
his thatcner) are smoke-blackened. The trusses have high morticed collars but the
ridge does not survive.
