SX74SE Little Thatch

House. Circa early C16, remodelled in circa late C17 and extended in late
C20. Whitewashed stone rubble and cob. Thatched roof with half hipped and
hipped ends. Rendered stone rubble stack at right hand end with slate
weathering and C20 brick stack at left hand end.
Plan and Development: 2 room plan, formerly probably with a through passage
between the two rooms. The larger lower right hand room is heated from a
gable end stack and the smaller left hand room was unheated. The house was
probably originally open to the roof and heated from an open hearth fire
since there are remains of smoke-blackened timber in the present roof. The
floor would have been inserted and stack at the lower end built in circa
late C17. In the late C20 a 2 storey kitchen wing was built behind the left
end and a garage with a room above was added to the lower right hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical. 2-3 window north front. C19 and C20 2
and 3 light casements with glazing bars, first floor windows at eaves level
with eyebrows in the thatch. Ground floor left hand window is C19 30-pane
horizontally sliding sash. Garage doors in late C20 extension on right
Rear elevation has 2-storey C20 wing to right, rendered and with hipped
thatched roof with eyebrow eaves.
Interior: Mostly later soft-wood joists, but right hand room has one
roughly fashioned beam. Fireplace at lower right end with chamfered
calipered timber lintel with run-out steps. Partition on left hand side and
most of partition on right hand side of former passage has been removed.
Most of the roof structure has been replaced in circa late C17 or early C18,
the trusses have collars lapped and pegged to faced of straight principals.
One truss over lower right hand end has reused earlier principals which are
smoke-blackened and one principal has mortice for a collar, the apex of
truss is missing.
