7/25 22/12 Plough Cottage

House, formerly used as public house. Circa 1600 with late C19 and mid-C20
alterations and additions. Part timber-framed with painted brick and
rendered infill on tall limestone rubble base, and part limestone rubble;
thatched roof with brick stack at centre and east end of ridge. Four framed
bays aligned east/west including narrow cross-passage bay (second from east
end) and with large chimney backing onto passage. Single storey and attic
with dormers. Framing: two and three panels from sill to wall-plate, short
straight solid upper corner braces, no roof trusses visible externally.
South front elevation: irregular fenestration with three 2-light casements,
a 3-light casement and a single-light casement on the ground floor, and a
square landing light and two eyebrow dormers, one with a pair of 2-light
casements and the other with a 4-light casement. Main entrance has a ledged
and battened door with a wrought iron single bracket above. Attic light in
left gable end. There is a C19 single-bay limestone rubble addition at the
right gable end. It was built as a stable but is now part of the house and
has a C20 bay window and door in the front elevation. Also C19 single-storey
kitchen addition at rear. The framing of the two easternmost bays suggest
they are earlier in date. Interior: framing largely intact including inter-
mediate collar and tie-beam roof trusses. Chamfered cross-beamed ceiling in
central ground floor room with large fireplace. Ogee stop-chamfered main
ceiling beams in former parlour in west bay. Elm winder staircase to rear
of cross passage.
