Throttle Kenniford and cottage
3/14 adjoining at the north west

Pair of cottages. C18 or earlier. Cob on stone rubble, whitewashed and rendered;
slate roof, hipped at left end, gabled at right end; 2 rear projecting lateral stacks
(1 partly dismantled), right end stack with brick shaft.
2 single depth cottages, the rear elevation to the road, the front elevation facing a
courtyard. Internal details suggest that the right hand cottage is the earlier. It
may have been a C17 house but the early details visible at time of survey (1985) in
both cottages are C18. The left hand cottage, 3 rooms wide, has a central entrance
directly into a room heated from a rear lateral stack with smaller unheated rooms on
either side, the right hand room was originally part of Throttle Kenniford. The
cottage adjoining at the right end, Throttle Kenniford, has a main range of 1 heated
room plus a 1 room plan extension at the right end (formerly an outbuilding). The
main range was originally 2 rooms, the left hand heated from the rear lateral stack
(partly dismantled) the right hand room heated from the end stack. There is said to
be a blocked first floor window on the left end wall indicating that it was formerly
an external wall. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2:2 window front. The left hand cottage
has a C20 central porch with a sloping slate roof and 2-light small pane casements,
some lights with iron glazing bars. Ground floor window right is a good example of a
probably C18 complete iron casement, 2-lights, 20-panes per light with hasp handles.
Throttle Kenniford, adjoining at the right, has 2 first floor gabled dormers and a
C20 front door at the extreme left. Fenestration of 2- and 3-light C18 iron
casements with small panes, with some replacement opening lights.
Interior: The left hand cottage has 1 chamfered cross beam in the central room.
Roofspace not inspected but said to have pegged timbers with straight principal
rafters. Throttle Kenniford has a boxed in cross beam.
The survival of the iron casements is an important feature of these cottages which
form a group with the cottage at right angles to the road (qv).
