6/88 Oak Beam Cottage and
No.2 Ducks Alley


Pair of cottages. Late C17-early C18. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings;
stone rubble stack topped with C19 brick; thatch roof, replaced with slate over No.2
Plan: pair of contemporary cottages facing north. Each is a mirror of the other
about the central crosswall. The doorways each end of the front are directly into
the main rooms, each heated by back-to-back fireplaces in the central axial stack.
Small service outshots to rear under the main roof. Oak Beam Cottage is that to
right, No.2 Ducks Alley to left. 2 storeys.
Exterior: overall irregular 4-window front of various C19 and C20 casements with
glazing bars. Oak Beam Cottage has an unusual late C19 part-glazed panelled door
behind a contemporary gabled porch. No.2 Ducks Alley has a C20 part-glazed door. The
roof is hipped to right and butts that of the adjoining property to left.
Interior: in Oak Beam Cottage the main room crossbeam is soffit-chamfered with
runout stops and the fireplace has a soffit-chamfered oak lintel. The roof is
inaccessible but the scantling of the principals suggest that original A-frame
trusses survive. In No.2 Ducks Alley the fireplace is blocked and all structural
detail is hidden by C19 and C20 plaster. Nevertheless it is thought to have similar
features to those in Oak Beam Cottage.
