7/20 Holly Cottage
- II

Cottage, probably early C17, altered. Oak frame and brick,
pebbledashed; clay tile roof of steep pitch probably formerly
thatched. 1 storey plus attic. Small casements mostly of C19
vernacular type. Oak frame exposed on left gable with flush gable
chimney; this was formerly a central ridge chimney, the adjoining
cottage to left having been demolished circa 1965.
Interior: Stopped ovolo beam, on shaped bracket at rear; altered
inglenook with lower edge of oak bressumer partly cut away to increase
headroom; lightly chamfered oak joists; small frame visible at rear of
parlour and bedroom and on gable walls upstairs; tie-beam in left
gable-end on jowled bracket above bedroom floor level (and as seen
externally) suggest a possible former open-hall dwelling incorporating
Holly Cottage and its demolished neighbour.
