Two cottages, now one dwelling. Circa 1800, renovated. Timber framed rendered
and thatched combed wheat reed roof. Red brick c.1800 ridge stack of two
flues. When the cottage was recorded in 1950, there was a cement panel in the
stack, incised with the initials TVW and the date 1853. One cottage to the
road and the other on the east side, forming an L-plan. Two storeys. Two
small modern casements to each storey. Doorway to front cottage at north end,
now blocked. Present doorway now at the side. Inside: each cottage had a
kitchen and scullery at ground floor. A cupboard staircase off the scullery
led to two first floor rooms. Back-to-back hearths with segmental arched heads
to small hearth openings. The bread ovens at the side have been removed.
Framing exposed. Varied scantlings and vacant peg and bracing trenches
indicate reuse of some timbers.
