4/94 Sachristan Cottage
Cottage. Probably C17 or C18 core, refurbished circa 1870-80. Plastered cob on
rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
House faces west with 2 main rooms to the plan and central staircase. The left
(southern) rooms is subdivided with a small rear lobby room. The larger front room
is heated by an end stack and right room also heated by an end stack in the party
wall with adjoining Monks Cottage (q.v.). 2 storeys.
The symmetry of the 2-window front is upset by the C19 flat-roofed woodshed
projecting from the left end. The front doorway is slightly right of centre and
contains mid C19 part-glazed and panelled double doors behind contemporary zinc-
roofed porch with fluted timber posts and moulded entablature. It is flanked by
canted bay windows with side sashes and no glazing bars. The first floor casements
have thatched gables over. The roof is gable-ended to right and continuous with the
adjoining Monks Cottage (q.v.) to left. The rear elevation, overlooking the
churchyard, includes a full height canted bay to the northern room with a ground
floor sash window with margin panes filled with coloured glass and a first floor
casement with glazing bars.
Interior includes much C19 joinery. The southern front room has panelled
wainscotting and a rear corner diagonal stack. Roof not inspected.
