Old Rose Cottage


Two houses, now one dwelling. Early Cl7, extended probably late Cl7 with
mid-C19 and circa 1930 alterations. Timber-framed with rendered infill on
rubble base with asbestos-tiled roof. Originally of two framed bays aligned
roughly north/south; extended by two framed bays at south end in late Cl7,
when large external brick chimney with offsets was also added at centre of
west elevation. The southernmost bay was demolished probably circa 1930.
Single storey and attic with dormers. Framing: three rows of panels from
sill to wall-plate and collar and tie-beam truss with four struts to collar
and V-strut in apex at north end. The roof of the present southernmost bay
was raised and rebuilt circa 1930 and an additional row of panels was added
beneath eaves level. East front elevation: the original part has two C20
hipped-roofed canted bay windows on the ground floor and a C20 raking-top
dormer with a 3-light casement. The additional bay has a similar dormer
window. Main entrance at south end has a lean-to C20 porch with square side
lights and part-glazed door within. Attic lights at gable ends. Lean-to
additions at rear. Interior: chimney now blocked but served two fireplaces,
both with bread ovens. Included for group value with Holly Tree Cottage (qv).
