22.3.85 Cottage)


Cottage. 1586 for Richard Dunnidge. The bay at the east end was probably
rebuilt in C17. Timber framed, plaster rendered and long straw thatch roof
with red brick stack at right angles to the ridge. Lobby entry plan and four
bays including a narrower bay to east end. One storey and attic. Two
dormers. Six windows including two C19 horizontal sliding sashes and two
small casements. Doorway opposite the stack of four flush panels, probably
C18. Inside: Some framing, particularly in centre and west bay, exposed.
Downward wall bracing and heavy, close set ceiling joists laid flat and
carried on chamfered clamp. Original clasped side purlin roof. The
partition wall between the centre room and the bay to the west has close set
framing with downward bracing. Over the centre bay the ceiling main beam
appears to be later although the clamp is of late C16 date. The fireplace in
the bay to the east was added later. In this room the ceiling is carried on
a middle rail with small, ovolo moulding.
