(North West Side)

No. 53


Cottage, c.1550 with C17 and C19 additions and alterations.
Timber framed, rendered with gault brick casing and steeply
pitched, tiled roof with a ridge stack. Plan of three bays and
lobby entry. Two storeys. Three recessed windows to each
storey. Doorway in C20 brick porch opposite the stack.
Interior: Timber framing exposed. Close set studding and
curved downward bracing. The partition wall between service end
and hall has been retained and shows an original doorway
lintel. There is another doorway lintel in the front wall which
probably originally led to a cross passage. This suggests that
the original entry to the cottage was to a cross passage at the
low end of the hall and the lobby entry is a later insertion.
There is a shutter groove in the centre room in the front wall.
The red brick of the inglenook hearth is late C17 and probably
replaces an earlier chimney stack, possible framed. The roof
was raised at the same time as the stack was rebuilt. This
later framing is of light scantling and has long, straight
R.C.H.M: Record card.
