2/56 Victoria Cottage,


Building of uncertain purpose, late C16, altered in C18, C19 and C20. Timber
framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays aligned approx.
E-W, aspect S, with external chimney stack at E end. 2-bay extension to E,
enclosing the stack, C18. Rear extension to W bay, with internal chimney stack
at the junction, C18/19. Lean-to extension to rear of remainder, with catslide
roof, C19. 2 storeys. 2 C20 doors with bracketed pediments, 2 C18 splayed
oriels with double-hung sash windows of 3-15-3 lights, and curved wooden
brackets below, 2 C20 casement windows. First floor, 4 C19/20 casement windows.
The interior has plain-chamfered axial beams, joists plastered to the soffits.
Partition wall between 2 middle ground floor rooms removed. Some exposed
studding in lower rear wall, with evidence of a former unglazed window of 4
lights. Jowled posts, close studding with curved tension braces trenched to
the inside, short arched braces to tiebeams, clasped purlin roof with curved
wind bracing. The upper floor appears originally to have been one undivided
space, partitioned later. Thus the unusual position of the main stack, and
the position almost opposite the church suggest a public rather than a domestic
function originally. The building was restored by public subscription as 3
cottages to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, 1897, the origin of
the present name. They have been combined to form one house.
