6/130 Course Cottages including wall to
- the east
Row of 3 cottages, formerly 4, possibly converted from a range of farm buildings in
the C19. Colourwashed rendered cob and stone rubble; red tiled roofs (formerly
thatched), slated at the right end, 2 axial stacks.
Plan: A row of single depth cottages, some with rear outshuts, the centre 2 converted
into one, the right hand cottage extended into a former stable. It is said locally
that the cottages originated as a farmbuilding range to a farmhouse which was sited
to the north and demolished in the early C20. An early C20 photograph in the
possession of the owners of No. 1. shows the farmhouse and the cottages which were
thatched at the time, with a projection for the village shop in the centre.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:3:3 window front. The left hand cottage, no. 1,
has a door to the left into a narrow service room and 1 first floor and 1 ground
floor 3-light late C19 small pane casements. No. 2 (formerly 2 cottages) has a 3
window front with C20 replacement on the ground floor. No 3 has a front door to left
of centre and a second door to the left into the former stable; 3-light small-pane
Interior: No. 1, not fully inspected, appears to have a plain interior. No 2 has
been modernised with the crosswall that formerly divided the 2 cottages removed, an
open fireplace with a bread oven survives at the right end. No. 3 was not inspected
at time of survey but is said to be very unaltered internally. 2 of the cottages
were used at one time to house the employees, coachman and gardener, of the owner of
Rose Ash Court (now Rose Ash House (q.v.) Tull).
