Cottage) under Silver Street)
SX 4358 6/15 17.1.52
Thought to be C16 and traditionally the house of Francis Drake's wife. There is
little doubt about this house which is even C17 (see entrance and possibly newel
staircase position), even the typically vernacular lateral chimney is possibly a C19
insertion (RCHM report 2 June 1975). 2 storeys irregularly spaced. 2 windows mostly
modern replacements, although one on ground floor has worn oak mullions. Granite
central doorway with segmental and moulded head. Lateral rubble stopped chimney
with brick top. Stone platform to door against steepness of the hill. Built of
rubble with slate roof.
Interior: much remodelled in c 1700 and C19. Through passage with plank and muntin
partitions, newel staircase in thickness of wall to rear.
