East Milford Cottage


Cottage standing in farmyard. Probably early to mid C17. Rendered stone rubble
walls possibly with some cob. Gable-ended corrugated asbestos roof. Rubble axial
stack with brick shaft and similar stack at left gable-end.
Plan: either 2 or 3-room plan, the right-hand room is problemmatic since on the
ground floor it has no internal access and serves a non-domestic function but the
room above is part of the house. Both the other rooms are heated by fireplaces in
their end walls, the right-hand room is built out at the front for a staircase and
window bay. C19 outbuilding added at right-hand end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with shallow wide rectangular
projection to right of centre which has a late C20 single light casement on the 1st
floor and a C19 2-light small-paned casement below with a small C20 stair light to
its left. To the right of the projection is a plank door to the integral
outbuilding and a C20 2-light casement above. Large lean-to C20 porch to left of
projection with window and glazed door to the right. Lower C19 outbuilding attached
at right-hand end.
Interior: wide C17 fireplace in left-hand room with chamfered and step-stopped
wooden lintel. Chamfered ceiling beam in right-hand room. Roof trusses over left-
hand end have had their feet cut of but they appear to curve and have heavy purlins.
Roof space inaccessible at time of survey but an inspection would give a more
precise date to the house and might reveal origins earlier than C17.
