NEW STREET, Chagford.
No 41


House. Probably early, maybe mid C16 with later modernisations, the latest, a
thorough renovation of circa 1980. Coursed blocks of granite ashlar with some
granite stone rubble patching; granite ashlar stack and chimney shaft; slate roof
(formerly thatch).
Plan and development: 3-room-and-through-passage plan house built along the street
and facing east. The service end room is at the right (northern) end. Circa 1980
hall and inner room were knocked together. The hall has projecting front lateral
stack (unusual for this part of Devon). Circa 1980 the interior was so thoroughly
rebuilt that all evidence of its historic development has been removed. It may be
that, like its neighbours Nos 31 (q.v.) and No 47 (q.v), it begun as a hall-house
wholly open to the roof, divided by low partitions and heated by an open hearth fire.
It is now 2 storeys with attics in the roofspace.
Exterior: irregular 4-window front of circa 1980 replacement sashes and casements
with glazing bars. The passage doorway is set right of centre and is open. The
front has a wrought iron grille of circa 1980; the rear has the cranked head of a C16
doorframe but the jambs have been replaced. Immediately to left of front doorway is
the hall stack. There is an old metal Royal Insurance plaque set high in the wall
between the 2 left windows. Roof butts those of the adjoining properties and
includes attic roof lights.
Interior was nearly completely rebuilt circa 1980 with new floors, roof structure and
attics. The small service end however has an old ceiling of axial joists of massive
scantling. It also includes the well. The hall fireplace remains, it is probably
late C16. It is built wholly of granite ashlar with a side oven.
Despite the rebuilding of circa 1980 No 41 New Street has an attractive exterior and
forms part of a group of listed buildings along the western side of the street.
