ST 11 NW HEMYOCK
1/45 Shoebrook's Cottage
Detached cottage. Probably late C17 or early C18 with an extension dated 1828.
Rendered; mainly random rubble with some cob; gable end slate roof. Originally a
2-room cottage, the left-hand room little more than an unheated entrance and
passage, with a larger right-hand room heated by an axial (but formerly on end)
stack with brick shaft. The 1828 extension is to the right of this. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: One 3-light C19 casement window to first floor, one later
casement window to main room with doorway to left. Rear with glazed extension and
one 3-light casement window to first floor.
Interior: open fireplace (still in use as such) with unchamfered lintel. Main room
with ceiling cross beam, chamfered with scroll stops.
An intact example of a late C17 smallholder's cottage, possibly originally a
squatters cottage, in remote terrain on the south slopes of the Blackdown Hills.
