4/21 Bramley Cottage and


House, C15, extended in C19, now 2 cottages. Timber framed, plastered, roofed
with interlocking concrete tiles. 2-bay hall aligned E-W, aspect S, with
integral storeyed parlour/solar bay at W end, and C19 extension at E end. Axial
chimney stack, late C16, in E bay of hall, and external chimney stacks at W and
E ends. Single-storey lean-to extension at E end. The property division
between Bramley Cottage and Touchwood is through the axial stack, with one
hearth in each cottage, most of the C15 hall house being included in Bramley
Cottage, and the frame extending approx. 2 metres into Touchwood. Single storey
with attics. 2 C20 half-glazed doors, 5 C20 casement windows, 4 more in gabled
dormers. The interior of Bramley Cottage has jowled posts, heavy studding,
exposed wattle on the W side of the hall/parlour partition, lodged plain joists
of horizontal section over the parlour, and a late C16 inserted floor in the
hall, with chamfered axial beam and plain joists of horizontal section supported
on pegged clamps. The roof timbers are heavily sooted. A ceiling obstructs
access to the roof, but it appears to be of crownpost construction. Some
rebuilding at sides of main hearth. In Touchwood the main hearth is C17 with
lamb's tongue stops on the mantel beam. One large jowled post is exposed,
another boxed in.
