7/52 Pitt Cottage
Cottage, maybe 2 cottages originally. Probably C18. Exposed local stone rubble;
stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: 4-room plan cottage facing south-east and set gable-end onto the lane. At
the right (north-east) end, away from the lane, has a gable-end stack. Next to it,
right of centre is a smaller unheated room (the present kitchen). Left of centre a
room with rear lateral stack and at the left end another small unheated room. In
the C20 the partition between these 2 left rooms was removed and the rooms united.
Present doorway directly into the right end room. Originally it is thought that
there were two 2-room cottages here; each comprising 1 heated room with a smaller
unheated room. 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular front fenestration with 4 ground floor windows and 2 first
floor windows; late C19 and C20 casements, most with glazing bars. Front doorway
towards the right end contains a C20 part-glazed door. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior has plain carpentry detail where exposed. Roof not exposed.
This cottage is one of an attractive group of thatch-roofed houses which make up the
hamlet of Street.
