Rock Cottage (formerly
listed with Rock Villa
26.1.67 and Rose Cottage)


Cottage in row, on street corner. C17 and Cl9. Rendered, probably on cob
tarred plinth, thatched roof. In two sections, lower part adjoins Wychwood (qv)
and higher section returns corner to adjoin Rose Cottage (qv). Lower section in
2 storeys; left is 2-light small pane casement in eyebrow over similar at ground
floor. Between window and door a projecting butress in rubble, and in re-
entrant angle to right a slated lean-to porch with peaked-head on posts at front
and C20 glazed door, back probably to cross-passage. Higher section has hipped
end to road, over a 4-pane sash at ground floor, and with stepped square stack
at the outer corner. The return front is in 2 storeys with 2 windows: at ground
floor is a blocked opening with a drip-stone over, then pent-roof enclosed porch
over plank door, and 2-light glazing-bar casement beneath a 'floating' drip
course. First floor has two small 2-light glazing bar casements to slight eye-
brows. Brick stack to right gable. Interior not accessible. The stack posi-
tion is unusual. The name derives from the fact that the cottage is built
directly on rock, exposed above street level.
