8/178 Tracey Hill Cottage

Cottage, possibly formerly 2 cottages. Mid to late C17 with minor late C19 addition
and minor late C20 alterations and additions. Rendered cob with wheatstraw thatched
roof. Rendered end stacks.
Plan and development: Three-room plan, facing north-east. Integral end stacks and
central unheated hall with front entrance at the right-hand end. Blocked front
doorway into left-hand room. Inserted C20 staircase at rear of left-hand room.
Partition between central and left-hand ground-floor room removed, probably in the
late C20. C19 outshut at left-hand end, altered in the late C20. Late C20 outshut
at right-hand end. Two storeys with one-storey outshuts.
Exterior: Asymmetrically -fenestrated front; mostly late C19 two-and three-light
wooden casements, 3 to first floor and 4 to ground floor. Second ground-floor window
from left is a late C20 fixed window, formerly a doorway. Doorway between first and
second windows from right with late C20 two-leaf door, wooden lintel and late C20
thatched rendered porch.
Tnterior: Right- and left-hand ground floor rooms have joists spanning front to
back. Probably C20 joists in central room. C17 fireplaces in end rooms have stone
jambs and chamfered wooden lintels. The left-hand fireplace has a bread oven with a
C19 cast-iron door. Front doorway reduced in width at same time (see former wider
jambs). C17 roof with trusses consisting of straight principals and pegged lap-
jointed collars.
It is reported (owners, February 1988) that the cottage was formerly 2 separate
cottages, joined together at quite a late date, but the building provides no evidence
of this.
