SS 60 NW
2/34 Judley's Cottage
House. Circa late C15 or early C16 with C17 alterations and circa late C17
addition, modernised in mid C20. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Thatched roof,
half-hipped to left, hipped to right. 2 brick axial stacks.
Plan: Originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan, higher end to the right, which
almost certainly had an open hall with central hearth. Floored over in C17 when
axial hall stack was also inserted backing onto the passage. Inner room remained
unheated until circa late C17 when wing was added behind with a stack axial to it
heating both rooms. In the mid C20 the house was considerably modernised internally
and re-fenestrated. At an indeterminate stage the lower end was demolished below
the passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front of mid C20 leaded-light casements
- 2 light to the 1st floor, 4-light to the ground floor of which the left-hand
window is a canted bay. Thatch is raised in eyebrows over 1st floor windows. To
the left is original, pointed 4-centred, chamfered wooden doorway with C20 arched
plank and glazed door. In front of it is a rustic open-fronted thatched porch.
Wide wing projects at rear of right-hand end of house.
Interior: Substantial chamfered longitudinal beams in hall and inner room. Room
behind inner room has fireplace with high chamfered wooden lintel. Hall fireplace
has high cambered chamfered wooden lintel resting on corbel and granite jamb to the
Roof: 2 original pairs of side-pegged jointed crucks survive but varnish obscures
any evidence of smoke-blackening. Both have morticed cranked collars, threaded
purlins and diagonal ridge. They differ however in their apex construction: the
hall truss has a triangular strengthening block whereas the truss at the lower side
of the passage has a curved saddle into which the top of the cruck blades are
morticed and on which the ridge rests.
