7/103 Waldon Cottage
15.1.76 (Ennerdale)
House. Circa mid C17 with C18 addition. Plastered cob walls. Gable-ended thatch
roof. Brick stack at each gable-end and 1 rear lateral stack.
Plan: probably originated as 2 or 3-room-and-through-passge plan - lower room to
the right, passage now infilled with C20 staircase although as the house backs onto
the churchyard there may never have been a back door. The inner room may formerly
have had a non-domestic use. Probably in the C18 a small outbuilding was added in
front of the lower room which was converted in the later C20.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of C19 and early C20 small-paned
2-light casements the 1st floor windows have small gables above. C20 plank door to
right of centre under thatch doorhood. Single storey former outbuilding projecting
from right-hand end.
Interior: right-hand room has fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel with notched
stops. Probably C18 or early C19 roof structure of rough straight principals with
lapped and pegged collars.
The picturesque appearance of this building, with the Church tower rising behind it,
contributes greatly to the setting of the village square.
