SX 86 NE KINGSKERSWELL CHURCH END ROAD, (west side),
3/161 Tudor Cottage and Gospel Hall
Cottage with adjoining Gospel Hall, originally probably the Church House. Probably
C16 origins much altered in C17 and later C19/early C20. Rendered cob walls with
thatched roof hipped to right and gabled to left, slate roof to rear outshut.
Rendered rubble stack to left gable end and large lateral stack at rear.
Originally likely to have been 3-room plan left-hand room heated by gable stack,
right hand room by rear lateral stack, central room unheated. Rear wing added
behind right hand room probably in C18. Divided into 2 probably in circa late C19,
left hand end became Gospel Hall. Rear outshut added at this stage.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of mid C20 2-light casements to Gospel Hall
at left. Tudor Cottage to right has C19 3-light wood mullion window with ogee
headed lights on ground floor. On first floor to its right is similar style 2-light
window which has had square headed casement inserted into the arched light on the
left, probably a C19 alteration to an original window. Rear wing projects slightly
to right onto the road and in front of it in the angle with the house is C20 leanto
slate-roofed porch with plank door. At rear is outshut to right of wing.
Interior of Tudor Cottage has rough, possibly replacement, wooden lintel to
fireplace in main room. The most interesting feature is the circa late C17
plasterwork in the first floor room at the right gable end. On the end walls is a
square design with a border of raised flowers, squares and rosettes and a rosette at
the centre. To the left, in a row, are 2 fishes alternating with a rosette and a
tulip type flower; at present the plasterwork is considerably obscured by layers of
A document of 1566 refering to the Church house probably relates to this building.
