Oak Tree Cottage
House. Late C16 with early C19 alteration and extension. Rendered and
pebble-dashed rubble walls, exposed timber-frame to south front, C20 brown
tile roof but thatched originally. 2 cells with central through-passage.
2 storeys. 3 bays, central bay narrower. Central doorway has moulded wood
architrave with, to right, jamb posts to either side on padstones. To left,
cruciform wooden casement window; to right, wide Yorkshire sash. Smaller
Yorkshire sashes to 1st floor. 1st-floor timbering: mid-rail, wall-plate,
4 posts with straight braces and close-studded wall. The studs are pegged
and jointed to rail and plate and halved over the braces and taper off.
The left-hand 2 bays are lower than right-hand bay, perhaps indicating a
difference in floor heights originally. Ridge stack at junction of 1st and
2nd cells. Rear: later added cell to rear of 2nd cell has parallel roof.
1st cell has window with projecting sill and ½ dormer above. Right-hand
return has single Yorkshire sash with 2 windows above and small windows
above them, one circular, one rectangular. Added cell has doorway with
wooden surround and 1st-floor canted-bay windows.
Interior: much of the timbering survives: former bressumer with stop-chamfers
supported either end by posts on padstones. Posts have jowelled heads and
are braced to wall-plate. On 1st floor rear wall of 2nd cell, at junction
with later addition, has surviving close-studded wall.
In the C19 this was a tobacconist's shop and formerly had a notice over the
front door saying "Here lives Nathaniel Clough
A seller of tobacco
And very fine snuff".
The exposed timber framing is a rare survival in this region.
