2/111 3 Cottages on north west corner of
lane to Court Barton
House divided into 3 cottages. Circa mid C17 or earlier with C20 alterations.
Whitewashed rendered cob and stone rubble; slate and asbestos slate roofs, gabled at
ends; axial stack with rendered shaft, right end rounded projecting stack with
Plan: single depth 3 room plan with a former 2 storey porch to left of centre which
provided an entrance into a lobby formed by the back to back stacks of the 2 left
hand rooms ; newel stair in No 2 adjacent to stack. Rear lean-tos to Nos 1 and 2
(rear right) raised to a 2-storey addition to the rear of No 3, this addition being
extended at time of survey (1987) to project beyond the left end of the range. The
evolution of the house is difficult to interpret : the 2 left hand rooms are
evidently C17, the right hand end (No 1) may be a later addition or rebuilding. The
division into cottages gives 2 1-room plan cottages at the right end with rear
service rooms, the former porch is part of the left hand cottage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2+2+1 window front, gabled 2-storey porch to to
left of centre the front door blocked and replaced by a 2-light timber casement with
glazing bars. Each cottage has a C20 front door to the left, No 3 with a C20 glazed
porch. Variety of C20 casement windows.
Interior: No 1 modernized : Nos 2 and 3 have unusual closely-spaced ceiling joists of
heavy scantling, possibly C18. No 2 has a C20 fireplace said to conceal a large
fireplace with a granite lintel : newel stone stair adjacent to stack with timber
treads and risers added. No 3 has an open fireplace with granite jambs; a scroll
stopped timber lintel and C19 bread oven.
Roof: Apex of No 2 inspected : of side-pegged jointed cruck construction, the feet of
the cruck truss partly dressed off, with a diagonally-set ridge : No 3 said to have
similar truss. The roof timbers of No 1 appear to be later with straight principal
