TL 5458 LITTLE WILBRAHAM HIGH STREET
(North Side)

17/35 No. 40 (Rose
Cottage)

GV II


Cottage of early C17 origin, altered C19. Timber framed with a
further, narrower bay, also originally timber framed, added to
the right hand gable end late in C17. In the early C19 the
timber framing was removed and the whole cottage underbuilt in
grey gault brick. At the same time the cottage was sub- divided
into two dwellings. There are two roofs of reed thatch and an
original C17 red brick stack with the upper courses rebuilt in
the late C19. One storey and attic. One dormer. At ground
floor three windows and two doorways, all C19 or later. In the
rear wall plate the mortices for studs and peg holes show that
the cottage was originally timber-framed. Inside there is an
inglenook fireplace of C17 red brick and clunch, and a chamfered
and ogee stopped main beam. The details of the narrower
addition including the fireplace and the boxing of the mainbeam,
are all C19.
