SX 57 NW
9/99 No. 1, Church Cottage

House, may originally have been church house. Circa early C17 altered in early
C20. Partly plastered granite rubble walls. Gable ended concrete tile roof. Large
rubble stack at left gable end with brick shaft. Rendered stack to right, axial
with later addition.
Plan: 2 rooms originally, left-hand room heated by gable fireplace. Original
position of stairs uncertain; C19 or early C20 straight-run stairs have been
inserted between the 2 rooms. The position of the blocked early doorway on the
centre of the rear wall raises problems with the plan as it does not oppose the
front doorway, is at an intermediate level and opens only into the churchyard. It
is likely either to be re-used or to have led into a stair projection which has
since been demolished.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of C20 2-light casements. C19
lean to open-fronted stone porch (which has stone seats) towards left-hand end with
original hollow chamfered granite segmental-headed doorway behind it. C20 glazed
door to right of centre. Similar blocked granite doorway roughly at centre of rear
Interior: Heavy chamfered cross beams. C20 tiled fireplace has been inserted into
earlier opening. Roof not inspected but old timbers may survive.
