1/286 Cobley Cottage
Small house. Early - mid C17, possibly earlier, much altered in the C19 and C20.
Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble and cob stacks topped with C19
brick; thatch roof.
Plan: 4-room plan house facing south with central entrance hall with stairs rising
to rear. The first room left of the entrance hall has an axial stack backing onto a
small unheated room at the left (west) end. To right of the entrance hall are 2
small rooms, the end one heated by an cob end stack. The basic fabric appears to be
C17 but it is difficult to fit the layout into a conventional pattern. Further
discoveries here might help sort the problem. It is 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. The front
doorway is right of centre but would be central if the right end room were not
tucked behind the adjoining property. It contains a C20 door in a contemporary
thatch-roofed porch. Roof is hipped each end.
Interior: the room right of the entrance has its crossbeam replaced by a C20 RSJ.
The partition between it and the end room is an oak plank-and-muntin screen but only
the plain rear is exposed in the end room and there-fore it cannot be dated at
present. The end stack is rubble with a soffit-moulded oak lintel. The room left
of the entrance lobby is the largest. It has a soffit-moulded and runout-stopped
crossbeam but the fireplace has been partly rebuilt in the C20. Roof of early - mid
C17 A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars with dovetail-shaped halvings.
