No. 2 (Corner
Cottage, sub-divided in early C19, and now a single dwelling. Early-mid C18,
extended. Clay bat on flint plinth, with plaster rendered walls and long
straw thatch roof, hipped. Ridge stack of clay bat except for upper
which are grey brick. Original cottage of two bays, extended to north west
and south east. Two storeys. Three original wood frame casements with
leaded lights and original casement fastenings at first floor. Two at ground
floor and two boarded doors. The enlargements are of late C18 or early C19.
Clay bat, plaster rendered and thatched. Inside: The flint plinth of the
original yable end wall to the north west is visible between the two ground
floor rooms. There are abutting small fireplaces of clay bat now partly
sealed, but the size would suggest a later reconstruction. There is an
original framed partition wall associated with the staircase at the side of
the stack. It seems that the cottage originated as one dwelling, was
converted in early C19 to two, and is now one. The small abutting hearths
and the doors would suggest a c.1800 date. The roof structure which is
uniform in scantling, and the evidence of the 1764 Estate Map points to the
early-mid C18 date.
