9/170 Church Cottage
(previously listed as School
House, formerly pair of cottages, possibly originally church house. Circa early C16
origins, C17 and C19 remodellings. Stone rubble, slate roof, gabled at ends; brick
end stacks and axial stack.
Plan: Present plan single depth, 4 rooms wide, backing on to the churchyard. The
origins of the house are probably a late medieval open hall, although the smoke-
blackening of the roof timbers is quite slight and the trusses over the left end are
clean. The development of the house is not clear and some of the evidence has been
obscured by the probably C18 or C19 subdivision into cottages. The 1975 list
description refers to 2 cottages with "plain doorways with slated hoods"; the right
hand doorway has been converted to a garden door, the hoods no longer exist and a
gabled stone porch has been added to the left hand door.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front, gabled stone porch to left, C20 2-
leaf glazed garden door with glazing bars to the right. C19 3-light timber casements
with small panes. The rear elevation, facing the churchyard, is set back at the
right end and has 1 small 1-light window with a timber lintel, ground floor left and
one 2-light casement; 2 first floor windows, one 1-light and one 2-light casement.
Interior: The right hand room of the range has a good open fireplace with a timber
lintel, chamfered step-stopped cross beam and plank and muntin sreen. The left hand
stack is probably a modern addition.
Roof: Side-pegged jointed cruck trusses. Although there is no evidence of a
partition up to the apex the smoke-staining is restricted to the trusses over the
