4/61 Podburys Cottage

Cottage. C17 with major C18 and C19 modernisations. Plastered cob on stone rubble
footings, part of rear wall rebuilt with brick; stone rubble or cob stacks with
plastered brick tops; thatch roof with parts of rear replaced with slate.
3-room plan house facing south and terraced into the hillside. There was originally
a cross passage between the central and right (eastern) rooms. It led to a stair
and corridor along the back of the central room. The partitions have been removed
to the middle room which has an axial stack backing onto the left (western) room.
The rear part of the left room is partitioned off as a small store. The main room
has a corner stack on the front outer side. The right room is unheated. 2 storeys.
Irregular 4-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars. There are
thatch eyebrows over the first floor windows. The doorway is right of centre and
contains a C20 stable-type door under a hipped thatch hood on raking struts. Roof
is half-hipped each end. There is a secondary door on the right (eastern) end with
a C20 conservatory.
Interior is mostly the result of C19 and C20 modernisations. The right room has a
roughly-finished axial beam of indeterminate date. In the centre and left rooms the
beams are boxed in and the fireplaces are blocked by C20 grates. Roof consists
mostly of C19 and C20 carpentry but there remains one C17 oak truss, a neatly-
squared A-frame with the collar morticed, tenoned and pegged.
