Timber Dooley, No. 6 Chapel Row


Cottage. Early-mid C17. Plastered local stone rubble (exposed on north-west end);
stone rubble stack topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: 2-room plan cottage facing onto the lane to the south-west. Front doorway
directly into the larger left (north-west) room which has a gable-end stack. Small
unheated lobby to right. This is the end cottage of a row of cottages that make up
Chapel Row but it is thought to be earlier than most of the others. It is 2
Exterior: nearly symmetrical 2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars
arranged around a central doorway which contains an old oak frame and C20 door. The
roof is gable-ended to left and to right is continuous with the roof over adjoining
No. 5 Chapel Row (q.v.) although the ridge and eaves of the latter is at a slightly
lower level.
Interior: the main ground floor room has chamfered and scroll-stopped crossbeam
which is not a straight timber. The stone rubble fireplace has a plain oak lintel.
No carpentry exposed in the unheated room. 2-bay roof carried on a side-pegged
jointed cruck filled with oak framing. The roofspace is inaccessible although it
might provide evidence for earlier origins to the building.
Timber Dooley forms part of an exceptionally good group of mostly thatch-roofed
buildings which make up the hamlet of Street.
