SD 73 NW
2/73 No.34 (Sands Cottage)
- II*
House, probably C15 and late C16 with C17 and later alterations. Sandstone
rubble encasing timber frame with stone slate roof. 2 storeys. East facade
of 2 bays, with a one-bay cross-wing at the left. Present openings have
plain reveals. Door in left-hand bay. Above the 1st floor windows is a
wall plate with peg holes for studs. Chimneys on right-hand gable, on
front wall of cross-wing and against rear wall of cross-wing, the latter
having a large external stack with offsets. Inside, the cross-wing
contains the remains of the earliest timber-framed range. Against its
western wall an open truss is visible on the 1st floor, showing that the
building once continued further west. This has heavy angled braces rising
to a tie beam which carries a king post. 2 purlins are trenched into the
backs of the principals. To the east is a second, closed, truss, with the
base of a king post and some studwork visible on the 1st floor. The
northern post of this truss continues to ground level. A brace to a cross
rail suggests that this range has always been floored. The main range to
the north is a separately-framed addition of 3 bays. The trusses are of
shallow pitch and have tie beams, king posts, and queen struts. There are
mortices for braces down to posts in the front wall, but not at the rear,
suggesting that the rear wall may always have been of stone. The northern
truss has wattle holes above and below the tie beam and has evidence of
smoke blackening which suggests that there was originally a smoke bay. The
floor of this range has chamfered and stopped joists. RCHM report by Sarah
Pearson and Colum Giles dated July 1979.
