Listing Text


5/91 Nos. 1, 2 and 3 Church Gate


3 cottages. Late C17 - early C18. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone
rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan: row of 3 cottages facing south, numbering 1 - 3 from left to rignt. No.1 is
groom plan cottage in which the left room has a rear lateral stack. No.2 is a 1-
room plan cottage with a rear lateral stack. No.3 is a 2-room plan cottage with end
stacks, the left one backing onto No.2. Secondary service outshots to rear.
Cottages are 2 storeys.
Exterior: 2:1:2 window front overall of C19 and C20 casements, most with glazing
frill the doors are C20 and No.1 has a C20 corrugated plastic porch. The roof
is gable-ended to right and to left it runs continuously with that of Lady House
(q.v) adjoining that end.
Interiors: show mostly the result of C19 and C20 modernisations but where carpentry
detail shows it is late C17 - early C18. For instance No.2 has a soffit-chamfered
axial beam with runout stops. The fireplace here is blocked. Also in No.3 a
fireplace is exposed in the left room. It is stone rubble with a soffit-chamfered
and straight out-stopped oak lintel. The roofs are inacessible but in No.3 the
bases of straight principals show, their scantling large enough to suggest original
A-frame trusses.
These cottages form part of an attractive group of listed buildings in the village
east of the churchyard.
