8/17 Beech Cottage
House. Circa 1600. Rubble and cob, some rendered; straw-thatched roof with gable
ends, lateral stack to centre of front with tall rubble shaft heightened in brick.
Plan: 3-room and through-passage plan, the lower end to the left was probably
originally unheated. The hall has a lateral stack at the front with an oven and a
small single-storeyed integral bay. The inner room is unheated and there is a full
height cob wall between the hall and inner room. The stack at the lower end is
probably a C19 insertion. 3-room-and-through-passage plan, central hall with sole
fireplace, unheated lower room to left, unheated inner room to right, hall with the
lateral stack, bread oven, projecting hall bay on right.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Irregular fenestration, 2- and 3-light C20 casements with
glazing bars, 2 on first floor with undulating eaves rising over them. Door opening
to the left of the lateral stack, plank door; lateral hall stack. Pigeon holes at
first floor. Single storeyed outbuilding with corrugated iron roof of left end.
Interior: hall with ceiling cross beam chamfered with hollow-stepped stops, 3
similar axial beams to inner room. Hall fireplace rebuilt C19, simple wood
chimneypiece with bracketted mantle; through-passage blocked by C19 straight flight
staircase; lower room featureless.
Roof: original roof with closed truss at the higher side of the through-passage,
trenched purlins, morticed apex, diagonal ridge, wide shallow rafters, morticed
wallpost; full height solid cob wall between hall and inner room extending right up
into the roof space.
This is a good example of a single phase early C17.
