HATHERLEIGH BRIDGE STREET (east side),
11/29 Nos 43 and 45
Pair of cottages, originally probably one house. Probably C16 origins but most of
the surviving early features are C17 and later alterations were made. Plastered and
rendered cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof half hipped to left, gabled to right. 2
brick stacks, one axial and one at right gable end.
Plan: original plan not entirely clear but almost certainly one house, probably
with 2 main heated rooms, left-hand one heated by axial stack and gable stack to
right-hand room. At present each cottage has 2 rooms and there is a probably late
C17 or early C18 outbuilding wing behind the right-hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front, 3 to No.43 to left. Its 2 left-
hand 1st floor windows are in small gables - the end one is a C17 chamfered 2-light
wooden mullion with leaded panes, the windows to its right is a 3-light C19
casement. Beyond that is a tall C20 3-light casement. On the ground floor are 2 3-
light C20 casements. C20 plank doors at the left and right ends. The left-hand
two-thirds of the house projects slightly from the rest of the building. At the
rear is a C17 3-light chamfered wooden mullion window. No.45 to right has regular 2
window front of C19 or early C20 2-light casements. Central C19 plank door.
Thatched outbuilding wing behind right-hand end.
Interior: of No. 43 has chamfered unstopped ceiling beams. Open fireplace with
narrow chamfered wooden lintel and straight cut stops.
Roof: one cruck type truss survives, possibly jointed, which has threaded purlins.
Very limited access to the roof-space precluded an inspection for smoke-blackening
but it is very possible that this is a medieval truss.
