Stocks Cottage

House, now empty. Circa early to mid C17. Stone rubble with corrugated iron roof
with gable ends. Lower ridge to higher range on right. Large projecting stone
rubble chimney stacks on gable ends.
Probably 2 room and through passage plan with kitchen in lower range on left and
parlour in slightly smaller room at higher end on right. Original position of stair
possibly at higher end to front of right-hand fireplace to gable end. Entrance
probably altered with tiny blocked door in opening to left of present entrance with
doorframe possibly reset. On the rear elevation, straight joints indicate position
of rear door of through passage.
2 storeys, asymmetrical 2-window front. Ground floor with partly blocked opening on
left, timber lintel over blocked entrance to left of centre, entrance to right of
centre and window overgrown with ivy to right. First floor with 2, partly blocked
window openings, one on left and other to right of entrance. 2 circa C17 window
openings on ground and first floor in left-hand gable end, to right of projecting
stack. On rear elevation, 3-light C17 timber mullion window on ground floor and
remains of C17 2-light timber mullion window on first floor. Low stone rubble walls
of lean-to outshut on right-hand gable end with entrance leading through from parlour
to rear of right end stack.
Interior with lime plastered walls. Low doorframe to blocked door on left only
visible from within; outer rectangular timber frame with circa C17 chamfered inner
timber frame. The jambs and lintel are chamfered on the inner side possibly
indicating resiting and re-orientation of the frame. The jambs have been morticed
into the lintel and shaped to form a rounded arch. The left-hand jamb has been
partly removed.
The kitchen, passage and lower end of parlour have slate paved floors with chamfered
ceiling beams. Ceiling beams to parlour replaced in circa Cl9. Through passage
altered and blocked to rear. Stair inserted to left of passage with small room
between stair and screen. Parlour and kitchen fireplaces partly blocked. Step down
into kitchen.
First floor with 2 circa C17 fireplaces in gable-ends. Roof of 5 bays. Truss one at
lower end on south, circa C17 with cambered collars with dovetailed, notched and
lapped joints and principals with slightly curved feet. Truss two was originally
open and is probably C17, possibly closed in C18 below the cambered collar with
vertically studded lath and plaster screen. Truss three, circa C18 with collar
missing, slightly blackened, possibly staining and originally closed. Trusses one,
two and three originally had trenched purlins. Truss four, circa late C18 with
lapped and oak pegged collars.
The cottage provides a good example in elevation and plan of an unspoilt circa early
C17 2 room and through passage plan house.
