5/87 Carlane Cottage


Small house. Circa early C18, divided into cottages and extended in circa
C19 and reunited in C2O. Roughcast stone rubble. Thatched roof with gabled
ends, slightly lower hipped roof to extension on left. Rendered gable end
stacks with short shafts with slate weathering, the right hand end stack
with slate weathered set-offs, and lateral stack at rear of left end
extension with red brick shaft.
Plan: Probably originally a 2-room plan house with central entrance and
gable end stacks. In circa C19 it was converted into 2 cottages and a third
one-room plan cottage was added at the left end with a lateral stack at the
back. In the C20 it was reunited into one house and the partitions in the
original part were removed to form one large room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 1:3 window south front. All C2O 2-light casements
with glazing bars and slate sills. Doorway to right of centre with C20
glazed door. C20 single storey outshut at right angles on left of front and
small single storey extension on right end.
The house backs onto the road and the rear elevation has only 2 small C20
casements and is otherwise blind.
Interior: The ground floor of the original house is now one large room with
a fireplace at either end with slate rubble jambs and renewed timber
lintels. The fireplace in the left hand/west/room has lateral fireplace
with high timber lintel. On the first floor 4 old plank doors with wrought-
iron hinges. Original elm roof timbers with halved, lapped and pegged
collars to straight principals.
