Listing Text

Calendar Cottage
House. C18 or earlier. C20 alterations. Partly exposed local stone rubble,
partly colourwashed and rendered possibly over cob; thatched roof with a plain
ridge, gabled at the right end; axial stack with brick shaft.
Plan. A single depth range, backing on to the churchyard, where the ground is
level with the eaves thatch. The house adjoins,and is in the same axis as the
rear right wing of Church Green Cottage (qv). Details of plan unclear at time
of survey (1988) as interior not inspected, but the right end of the house, with
2 changes of plane to the front elevation, is probably an addition. The axial
stack probably originally a right end stack. Disturbance to the masonry of the
rear wall suggests a rebuilding or perhaps a dismantled stack to the earlier block
which is probably 2 rooms wide.
Exterior. 2 storeys to the left and centre, single-storey to the right. Asymmetrical
3 window front, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over the 2 left hand windows, the front
elevation stepped back twice to the right of the stack. C20 front door to left
of centre, with a buttress to the right; second C20 front door into the single-storey
block to the right. C20 2-light timber casement windows with small panes. The
rear elevation, to the churchyard, has a rather ragged masonry joint to the right,
2X2-light casement windows to the right, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over the first
floor window. There is also a probably C20 attic dormer in the thatch.
Interior. Not inspected.
Part of an important group of thatched houses adjacent to the churchyard and within
the conservation area.
