2 houses, formerly 3 or 4 cottages. Late C17-early C18 and C18, circa 1980
extension to Oldlands. Plastered cob on rubble footings; cob or stone rubble stacks
topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof, slate to C20 extension.
Now 2 adjoining 2-room plan cottages facing south and backing onto the street.
Mount Pleasant to right (east) has axial stack in party wall and Oldlands to left
(west) has a projecting rear lateral stack with an oven projection which is shared
by fireplaces in each room. Oldlands derives from two 1-room plan cottages with
mirror plans either side of the timber-framed dividing crosswall. Oldlands also has

2 on the first floor have thatch gables over. Central C20 part-glazed door behind a
contemporary glass-roofed conservatory. Oldlands has a first floor 2-window front
of C19 casements with glazing bars and with thatch gables over. The window to right
of the extension has been enlarged to a French window. The roof is continuous,
gable-ended to right and half-hipped to left. The rear has an irregular disposition
of C20 fixed pane and casement windows. The 2 larger windows to rear of Oldlands
are probably blocking the original cottage doorways. The present door to Oldlands
is in the end wall with a C20 porch with corrugated asbestos roof.
Interior: Oldlands has 2 rooms, each with a soffit-chamfered and unstopped
crossbeam. The fireplaces are adjacent, either side of the timber-framed crosswall
and share the same soffit-chamfered lintel. Its roof too is original and is carried
on A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. Mount Pleasant was not
available for internal inspection at the time of survey. It may be contemporary or
a little later than Oldlands.
