TL 496 080 MAGDALEN LAVER Wynter's Cottage
4/51 (formerly listed under
13.9.78 Hastingwood Road, Hastingwood)
Cottage, late C16, extended in C17 and C20. Timber framed, plastered with
exposed framing, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 2 bays aligned approx.
E-W, the W bay originally open to the roof with an internal timber-framed
chimney, the E bay storeyed. One-bay extension to the W, C16/17. Lean-to
extension to the E, date uncertain. Parallel range of 2 storeys to the SE,
c.1980. Single storey with attics. N elevation, C20 door in tiled gabled porch
3 windows each of 2 leaded casements with arched heads, c.1980, one original
window with 2 diamond mullions, glazed and leaded on the inside, c.1980. 2
gabled dormers with casement windows as on ground floor. Roof half-hipped at
both ends. Some framing exposed internally. Jowled posts, arched braces from
corner posts to wallplates and tiebeams trenched inside studding. Clasped
purlin roof. The W bay retains evidence of unglazed windows with 2 diamond
mullions opposite each other in N and S walls, a S doorway against the SW
corner post, and a N doorway approx. 1 metre from the NW corner post. The W
wall was gabled, with an original timber-framed chimney (approx. 3 metres x
1 metre in plan) against its N end, forming a baffle-entry to the S. The roof
is not smoke-blackened. A floor was inserted in the early C17, of axial beam
with joists of vertical section supported on clamps, and later in the C17 the
timber-framed chimney was replaced in brick. In the- C17 a dormer was made in
the S pitch of the roof, re-using timber from an unglazed window elsewhere.
The E bay has an original floor of lodged joists of elm arranged longitudinally,
and retains evidence of unglazed windows with 2 diamond mullions in the lower
parts of the N and S walls and above the tiebeam of the E wall. The W extension
is built of re-used timber, weathered on both sides, with internal arch bracing
similar to the original cottage but set at a shallower angle. A brick chimney
with bread oven has been built against the partition. The absence of weathering
on the W wall of the original cottage indicates that there was an ancillary
building against it from the outset. Originally the road access was from the
S, later re-routed to the N. Measured drawings and a detailed report by Mr.
J. Walker of the Essex Architectural Research Society are deposited in the NMR.
