- II
Row of 4 cottages. C17 with later alterations and extensions, and a C19 partial
rebuild. Cob, stone plinth, plastered; C19 rebuilt section of red brick; all under
thatched roof, hipped to right-hand end (n.b. front facing away from road), gabled-
end to left. Probably incorporates an old farmhouse, the end of which now marked
by axial stack. 2 storeys, the roof ridge line to the right of axial stack at a
much lower level than the remainder of row.
Front: left-hand end rebuilt in brick with 2 and 3-light casement windows under
window-arches; similar windows to 1st floor throughout, but C20 casement windows
inserted in cob wall to right.
Rear: Five 2-light casement windows to 1st floor; rear lean-tos. 3 large rear
lateral stacks, 2 of them external.
Roof: 10 bays inspected, much altered, but with 4 C17 or early-C18 principals,
still bearing ridge-piece, side-pegged and morticed with halved collars; and
remains of 2 smaller (now redundant) trusses. Cross Cottages form a striking group
at the western approach to Bradninch Town.
