TL 25NE (West side)

Nos 14,16

Cottage, now two dwellings. Possibly late medieval and 1676. Timber framed,
roughcast rendered and long straw thatch roof. Ridge stack of red brick,
inscribed with initials CID and date 1676 to the base. C19 upper courses of
gault brick. Single range. One storey and attic. Two eyebrow dormers. Four
ground floor modern small wood casements and two doorways probably dating from
its subdivision. The cottage was originally probably of baffle entry type.
Interior: Back-to-back hearths. No 16 has kitchen with red brick inglenook
and bread oven. The hearth bressumer is C16. Moulded and reused. The truss
over the hall, and next to the 1676 inglenook probably remains from the late
medieval house. There are solid braces from the main posts to the tie beam,
partly obscured and wind bracing to this part of the roof. The joists in this
room are carried on splayed clamp. A staircase off the parlour at the south
end is probably original.
