SS 6814- 6914
7/82 Brayleys and Glen Haven
3.10.75 (Glen Haven)
2 adjoining cottages, probably originally a single tenement. Early to mid C17 with
later alterations. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatch roof with plain
ridge and gable ends. Hipped thatch roof to short rear wing at right end. Brick
stack at right end, and 2 rear lateral stacks, that towards the left end of stone
rubble with tapered cap, that to right has brick shaft.
Plan: left-hand cottage (Brayleys) has room to each side of central staircase. The
left-hand room is heated by the rear lateral stone rubble stack, the right-hand room
by a fireplace across the rear right-hand corner. This shares the brick stack with a
corresponding fireplace (now blocked) to the right-hand cottage which therefore at
one stage was of 2 rooms but now consists of direct entry into single large room
heated by the gable end fireplace, with short kitchen wing to rear right end.
Internal alterations and subdivision have obscured the original plan, but if the
lateral brick stack replaces one of stone rubble it may conceivably have conformed to
a 3 room and cross-passage plan, with lower end to left of former passage and hall to
right heated by rear lateral stacks and inner room at right end heated by gable end
stack. The short-rear kitchen wing at right end was probably added in early C19 and
extended in late C20 and there is an early C20 2-storey outshut to rear of Brayleys
at left end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 4 window range C19 fenestraton largely intact, all 3-light
casements, 2 and 3 panes per light. C20 door to Brayleys, 4 panelled door, the upper
2 panels glazed to Glen Haven.
Interior: 2 chamfered cross ceiling beams to Glen Haven with prism and scroll stops.
Chamfered fireplace lintel with deep recess to left, possibly originally a smoking
chamber. Brayleys has a deep chamfered cross ceiling beam to each room, and scroll-
stopped chamfered fireplace lintel to left-hand room.
Roof: not accessible but boxed in feet of straight principals suggest C17 roof
structure largely intact.
