3/81 Nos. 18 and 19
Pair of cottages, probably 1 house originally. C16 much altered and extended in C19
and C20. Colour washed stone rubble walls. Gable ended asbestos slate roof, higher
over No. 18. Brick stack at left gable end and rendered lateral stack at rear.
Originally appears to have had 2 room plan although the extension at the right-hand
end may replace earlier structure. Each principal room had a lateral stack, the
right-hand one at the rear, the left-hand one at the front. Unusually, each room
had a newel stair, both at the rear, each apparently original contained in a slight
projection. It is likely that originally a passage divided the 2 rooms. C19 1 room
addition at right-hand end. At this stage or possibly in earlier C20 the building
was divided into 2 properties at the division. In the C19 the front wall of No.,18
was built out and the fireplace removed. A C20 extension at added rear of No.18 to
2 storeys. Asymmetrical facade in 3 sections:- No. 18 to the left projects forward.
No. 19 has original part at centre and extension to right. 2 window front to No. 18
of circa mid C19 sashes, door is at left gable end. No.18 has late C20 aluminium
framed casements to both parts. At the left-hand side is probably original
segmental headed granite doorway with heavy roll-mouldings; C20 Tudor style door and
similar door to extension.
Interior: No. 19 shows no early features apart from the stone newel stairs adjoining
the fireplace (which has been virtualy reconstructed). No. 18 has very heavy cross
beams on the ground floor, chamfered with hollow step stops. It can be seen where
the front wall was built out from the fact that one beam rests on a corbel. A
complete set of similiarly decorated joists survives. Wooden newel stairs have
possibly had the treads renewed but curved wall suggests it is the original site.
In gable end wall on 1st floor blocked single light window is visible with segmental
chamfered granite window. 2 original trusses survive; very substantial with
threaded purlins, morticed apex with diagonal ridge and morticed cranked collars,
all are clean. These are over the original left-hand room of the house, roof
trusses to No.19 not inspected but according to owner are sawn timbers.
