HATHERLEIGH BRIDGE STREET (west side),
11/30 Nos 30, 32 and 34
Row of 3 cottages originally one house. Almost certainly late medieval with early
C17 alterations and extended probably in the C18 or C19 when subdivided. Rendered
cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof hipped to left end, gabled to right. Brick axial
stack towards right-hand end and large axial stack of roughly squared stones with
dripcourse, tapering cap and brick shaft.
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to left (now No.34) and
inner room (No.30) both probably extended when subdivided. Hall heated by axial
stack backing onto passage. Lack of access to the roofspace precludes positive
proof of an open hall but it seems likely that the hall stack is an insertion and
there may formerly have been an internal jetty (probably also inserted) in line with
the stack at the lower end of the hall. C19 and C20 rear additions.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 6 window front, 2 to each cottage. No. 34 to
left has C17 chamfered 3-light wooden mullion window to left on 1st floor, a C20 2-
light casement to the right and on the ground floor, with a late C19 4 panel door to
its left. No. 32 at centre has mid C20 2-light casements and a C20 plank door to
the left. No. 30 has early-mid C20 2-light casements and a central C20 plank door,
the right-hand side of this cottage projects and is probably an addition.
Interior: of No.34 was inaccessible at time of survey and No. 30 showed no early
features on the ground floor. No.32, the hall and passage of the original house has
a number of early features. It has chamfered cross beams and an open fireplace to
the hall whose lintel is obscured. In the wall at the higher end of the hall is a
blocked doorway with chamfered roundheaded wooden frame. A beam running above the
fireplace may mark tne position of an internal jetty.
Roof: one very substantial side-pegged jointed cruck is visible above the hall with
threaded purlins. The collar and apex detail are not visible and there is no access
to the roof space.
