HATHERLEIGH BRIDGE STREET (east side),
11/26 Nos. 13 and 15
Pair of cottages originally one house. Early-mid C17 but possibly with earlier
origins, altered probably in C19. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof
gabled to left hipped to right. Axial brick stack and one at left-hand end.
Plan has been considerably altered and now consists of 1 heated room with small rear
wing to No. 13 to left and 2 rooms to No. 15, the right-hand room heated by an axial
stack. It seems evident that originally it was one house, which, if it followed
the characteristic plan of Hatherleigh houses would have had a central wide
passageway between 2 rooms. This could have been converted to a room when the
building was subdivided and incorporated into No.15.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of circa mid C20 3-light
casements, later C20 on ground floor to left. No. 13 has C20 part-glazed door to
left of centre and No. 15 has C19 4-panelled door to right of centre.
Interior of No.15 has chamfered unstopped cross beam. No. 13 has chamfered and
ogee stopped cross beam. Fireplace with slightly cambered ovolo moulded wooden
lintel resting on curved corbels. Its first floor room has an ornamental plaster
overmantle above a C19 chimneypiece. This is probably aontemporarywith the fireplace
below - circa mid C17 - and has a central shield on a strapwork design with an
angel's head at the top. A simple moulded cornice runs round the walls of this room
and the feet of straight principals which extend slightly down the walls. The rear
wing has straight principals with trenched purlins and halved collar.
The plain exterior of this building conceals the existence of some surprisingly high
quality interior features.
