- II

House adjoining rear of building on Ford Street. Circa early C17 with C18, C19 and
C20 alterations. Rendered stone rubble, probably granite. Low pitched slate roof
with hipped north end and gabled south end abutting rear of No. 22 Ford Street.
Lead rolls to roof hips. Rendered central axial chimney stack.
Rectangular plan: pair of 1-room plan cottages with central chimneystack with back-
to-back fireplaces. The entrances to right and left of front originally probably
led into lobbies or passages. It has been converted into one house. It is
situated behind the street frontage and the right-hand end adjoins the rear of No.
22 which faces Ford Street, and the left-hand end is linked at rear to back
buildings forming a rear yard.
2 storeys. 2-window range. C20 casements, those to right in greatly enlarged
openings. Doorways at left and right ends of front.
Interior: back-to-back fireplaces in central stack, with chamfered timber lintels
with bar run-out stops with notches and chamfered monolithic granite jambs. These
fireplaces do not have internal ovens but in the wall to side of each fireplace
there is an arched recess.
Later roof with collars pegged and nailed to the faces of straight principal
C17 back-to-back fireplaces are unusual in Devon, although there are some examples
in Moretonhampstead including No. 26 Cross Street and Beam Cottage, Ford Street
