3/95 School House, including garden
- boundary wall to east and linhay
Cottage, reputedly formerly the School house. Circa late C17/early C18. Rendered cob walls with thatched roof half hipped to right end, gabled to left. Rendered brick gable end stack to left. Rendered rubble projecting lateral stack at rear of right-hand end with brick shaft. 2-room and cross-passage plan with larger room to left heated from gable end stack and smaller room, probably kitchen, to right heated from rear lateral stack. Stairs inserted into central passage probably in C19. A linhay to the rear of the right end and extends at right angles. 2 storeys. Almost regular 2 window front of C19 2-light casements with small panes. C20 part glazed door to left of centre under heavy C19 slate porch hood. Linhay forms wing at rear of right-hand end with shippon on ground floor and hay tallet above which is open-fronted.
Interior: right-hand room has open fireplace with plain, possibly replacement,
wooden lintel and oven in left-hand side. Roof space not inspected but evidence on first floor suggests insubstantial straight principals. To include rubble garden wall bordering road with square gate piers which have rough
capping. This cottage occupies a prominent corner position at the centre of Coffinswell and it is important that its traditional appearance should be retained. The original internal plan is also virtually intact.
