dripcourses and 4 upright slates at the top. 2-room plan with stairs at rear of
left hand larger heated room and very small service room behind other principal
unheated room to right, possibly a later insertion. Later entrance inserted into
side of larger room to left of stack.
2 storeys. 1 window front facing road, both 2-light casements with small panes,
probably later C19, first floor window has traces of H-L hinges. Ground floor
window was originally a door and has a timber lintel. On left-hand side wall at
first floor is possibly original stair window which is 2-light with square section
wooden mullion, iron stanchion bars and 1 original leaded light. The door is now in
the right-hand side wall to the left end and is a C19 plank door with a slate
pentice roof over.
Interior : remains little altered. The fireplace has a chamfered wooden lintel
with no stops discernable. In the bedroom above is a small open fireplace with
plain wooden lintel. Several probably original plank doors with strap hinges
survive. The straight run staircase is probably C18; it has oak treads and along
its length to its right is an odd arrangement of sloping wooden planks, reputedly
for the purpose of rolling down the cider barrels from when this was a cider-house.
This cottage retains its traditional character both internally and externally.
