SX 79 NW

Nos. 1 and 2 St Cherries


2 cottages, formerly a farmhouse. C17, enlarged in the C19, probably when
subdivided. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stack-topped with
C19 and C20 brick; corrugated asbestos roof, formerly thatch.
Plan and development: 2 cottages facing south either side of a large axial stack
serving back-to-back fireplaces. The left (western) cottage seems to have 2 rooms
of the C17 house, the larger right one with the fire-place and small central room.
The left end room (next to the road) is a former blacksmith's shop added in the C19
and brought into domestic use in the C20. It is not clear how much of No 2, the
right (eastern) cottage is original. C20 front lateral stack to right end room.
Both cottages now have rear doorways. Because of later alterations it is not
possible to work out the original layout although some type of C17 lobby entrance
house is suspected. Both cottages are 2 storeys.
Exterior: overall irregular 8-window front, 5 to No. 1 and 3 to No. 2, of various
C19 and C20 casements and roof is hipped both ends. Both rear doorways contain C20
doors with contemporary porches.
Interior is largely the result of extensive if superficial C19 and C20
modernisations. No carpentry detail is exposed in No. 2 and both main fireplaces
are-blocked by C20 grates. The main room in No. 1 does show a C17 soffit-chamfered
and scroll-stopped crossbeam. Roof not accessible but the bottom principals of
probably C17 A-frame trusses show on the first floor.
