4/204 Seldon Cottage and 1 and 2 Rectory
3 attached cottages, 1 and 2 Rectory Cottages may originally have been one house.
Probably mid to later C17 Seldon Cottage is of a different build to the other 2 and
was extended and partly rebuilt in C19. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Gable-ended
slate roof to Seldon Cottage, Rectory Cottages have a gable ended thatch roof.
Large projecting rendered rubble stack at front of Seldon Cottage; rendered brick
stack at right gable end of Rectory Cottages and brick axial stack.
Plan: Seldon Cottage to the left is evidently a different build to Rectory Cottages
but it is not clear which is the earlier. Seldon has a 2-room plan with central
passage, the left-hand room heated by a front lateral stack. In the C19 it was
built out at the rear to make it double depth. No.2 Rectory Cottage at the centre
has a 2-room plan, No.1 to its right has a 1-room plan - they may originally have
been a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house.
Exterior: Seldon Cottage set back at left-hand end has asymmetrical 1-window front
with projecting lateral stack to left-hand side and C20 2-light casement to right on
1st floor with 3-light late C19 or early C20 casement below. To its left is C20
timber lattice open-fronted porch with C19 4 panel door behind. Nos. 1 and 2
Rectory Cottages have asymmetrical 3-window front, 2 to No.2 to left which are C20
2-light casements. C20 part-glazed door to right of centre. No.2 to right has late
C20 PVC 2-light windows and C20 glazed door at centre under gable doorhood.
