8/75 Quilters


Cottage. C18 or early C19. Whitewashed granite rubble. Grouted scantle slate roof
with gable ends. Gable end stacks of dressed granite with granite dripcourse and
weathered tops, the right hand stack is very large.
Plan: 2 room plan with central entrance, both rooms heated from gable end stacks,
the right hand room the kitchen. In the C20 the internal partitions and staircase
were removed to form one large room and a 2 storey wing was added to the rear right.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 2 window range. Small late C19 or C20 4-
pane sashes with slate cills. Central doorway with late C19 or C20 glazed and
panelled door and C20 open-fronted gabled porch. At the rear a gable-ended C20 two-
storey wing.
Interior: The ground floor of the original house is now one large room. The
fireplace in the right hand end has chamfered granite jambs, one with heart-shaped
stop the other with a bar stop. The fireplace jambs are probably reused from another
house and the timber lintel is quite rough. Inserted in this fireplace is a late C19
iron range. To the right of the fireplace a bread oven with a cast-iron door with a
brass plate inscribed "Terrill and Rogers, Makers, Redruth". The softwood ceiling
joists have bead-moulded edges.
