10/32 Way Cottage, Little Cott and


Row of 3 contemporary cottages. Probably late C18-early C19. Plastered cob on
rubble footings; cob or stone stacks topped with brick; thatched roofs wheat reed
to Way Cottage, replaced with corrugated asbestos over Little Cott. All 3 are
small, 2 storey, 2 room cottages separated by cob party walls. Way Cottage (at
west end, left of front) and Little Cott (centre) have mirror plans sharing axial
stack in party walls and with doors to smaller outer rooms. Resthaven (on right,
nearest the road) has similar plan with central door and large projecting gable-end
stack with thatch-roofed oven projection. C20 porch to Resthaven. Fenestration,
though varied in disposition, is basically 2 windows to each cottage and C19
originals survive in outer cottages (all 2-light, 6 pane casements). Way Cottage
has mostly C20 windows. All heated rooms have plain chamfered cross beams but
fireplaces blocked with C20 chimney pieces. Included for group value.
