SX 7087 Chagford
6/116 No. 5


Cottage. Mid C17. Plastered granite stone rubble with sections of cob; granite
stack with C19 brick chimney shaft; thatch roof.
Plan: originally a 1-room plan cottage facing onto a narrow alley to the north-
west. It had an end stack to right. Later a service outshot with hayloft over was
added and this was converted to a kitchen in the C20. This cottage is part of the
C17 development of the rear tenement of a house now occupied by Church Stile Cottage
(q.v.) to which it is joined and Whiddons (q.v.). 2 storeys.
Exterior: 2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. The doorway at the
left end has a C17 oak lintel; it is chamfered with scroll-nick stops. The door
itself is a C20 studded plank door. The roof is hipped over the outshot to right.
Interior: the main room has a C17 plain chamfered crossbeam and the joists are
scratch-moulded. The fireplace is blocked by a C20 grate but some of its oak lintel
shows. Roof is inaccessible but the base of probably original A-frame trusses show.
