22/8 Nos 68 and 70


C17, mid C19. One-storey and attic, 4 windows. Timber-framed building with an
extension on the south side, carried out about the mid C19 when the whole was
reconstituted as a pair of Gothick cottages. Prominent old tile roof with a wide
overhang, hipped at the south end; at the rear (east) gables at each side enclose a
middle section with a low eaves. Four dormers to the front (west) and one on the south
face, with steep widely-projecting roofs, decorative bargeboards, scalloped
tile-hanging above 2-light casements. Front wall has exposed brick-nogged frame, with
brickwork (English bond) at the south side, plinth, cambered opening on the south end;
rear gable at the south side has an eaves level band of tiles on brick dentils. The
windows have diagonal cast metal panes. The large porch to No 68 has a gable with
ornamented pierced bargeboard, timber frame on a low brick wall, side rails, a red tile
roof with scalloped bands, exposed interior framing, a boarded door in a solid frame
with ornamental furniture. The porch to No 70 has a lower pitch and higher brick side
walls. The massive chimney breast on the north gable is planted on the exposed frames;
this was repeated at the south end but this stack is now engulfed in the extension.
Interior shows heavy beams and wide brick fireplace openings. No 70 has a modern rear
wing. Although the front is nearly symmetrical the inside arrangement has the front of
No 70 overlapping No 68.
