SX8244 Caroline Cottage and
12/102 Churchways Cottage

House with possible school-room addition, now divided into 2 cottages.
Circa late Cl7 to early C18, possibly with earlier origins and with C19
schoolroom extension. Roughcast stone rubble. Thatched roof with gabled
ends. Lower pitched slate roof extension to right. Rendered gable end
stacks to original house, and large lateral stack on front of right hand
extension, all with weathering and louvred pots.
Plan and development: Long 4-room plan range divided into 2 cottages,
Caroline Cottage occupies only the left end room, the remainder of the range
is Churchways Cottage.
The left end room (Caroline Cottage) and the large room to left of centre
were probably the original 2-room plan house heated from end stacks and with
a central cross or through passage into which a straight staircase has been
inserted. The right hand 2-room plan section appears to be a C19 schoolroom
extension, possibly adapted from an earlier range with a lateral stack at
the front which heated the left hand room on the ground floor and one large
room on the first floor which was reached by a staircase in the smaller
right hand end bay.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3:2 window front. Late Cl9 2-light
casements with glazing bars and 3 small C20 casements, 2 doorway to left and
one to right with C19 panelled doors, central door is partly glazed and all
have caopies of single slates on shaped brackets. On the right hand end the
former schoolroom has C29 glazed first floor doorway and 3 small casements
below. Rear elevation 2:3 window range of C20 2 and 3-light casements with
glazing bars. C20 conservatory to left of centre and C20 glazed doors.
Interior: Only Churchways Cottage accessible at time of survey in 1988.
Refurbishment in late Cl9. Boarded ceilings, panelled doors, small late C19
Chimneypieces with cast iron grates, one on ground floor with Art Nouveau
glazed tiles, 3 on first floor. Straight staircase inserted into passage.
Roof space of original range not accessible.
