House. Probably C17, with later C17-Cl8 addition to right; C19 rear
outshut, partial encasing and division into 2 dwellings; re-conversion to
single dwelling in mid C20. Re-thatched in 1973. Timber framing with mud-
and-stud infill, right addition in similar style and materials; brick to
rear extension, brick stack and casing to lower sections of front and right
return. Limewashed throughout. Thatch roof. Pantile roof to rear outshut.
2-room central lobby-entry plan with pantry to left end, small single-room
extension to right, and 2-room rear outshut. Single storey with attic, 2
windows. C20 glazed door flanked by plate-glass sliding sashes in C18-C19
segmental-headed frames with hinged shutters. Padstones visible at left and
right corners; brick encasing below window to left. Full raking dormer
window to right with 12-pane sliding sash and ornate C20 sill. Hipped roof
with lower eaves over right extension and ornate ridge capping. Axial
stack. Right return has part-glazed door, small casement and 4-pane sliding

main section has small single-light and 2-light windows in original
openings. Interior. Large central stark with pairs of small cupboards to
left and right sides, and inserted C20 fireplaces; ladder to attic in
adjoining cupboard facing lobby. Exposed joists and boxed-in spine beam to
room on right, supported by timber post on pair of padstones in original
mud-and-stud wall to right. Room to left (former kitchen), perhaps
originally open to roof, has C19 moulded joists. Ladder to attic in present
kitchen in right extension. Collared rafter roof. A well-preserved example
of a mud-and-stud cottage, especially notable the survival of the moveable
ladders and the original walling, coated with traditional putty lime and
whitening. Photograph in National Monunents Record.
