2/85 West Cottage


House. Late C15. Timber-framed and rendered, with panels of guilloche
pargetting. Thatched roof with decorated ridge. 1½ storeys; basic 3-cell
plan, formerly with central open hall; a C16 bay added on left. An internal
chimney stack with a plain red brick shaft, and a later stack added to the
left gable. 2 gabled dormers, one wide, with 3-light casement windows, the
other smaller, with a 2-light window. Various old 3-light casement windows to
ground floor, some with square leading, one with pintle hinges. French doors
with 2 leaves, small-paned. Old plank entrance door with plain surround and
triangular pediment. Simple basic frame in 3½ bays: the open truss of the 1½-
bay hall has been cut away, leaving only the main posts with empty mortices
for long braces. The main beam of the inserted ceiling is lodged into these
posts: early C17, wide chamfer and scroll-stops with bar. The position of one
5-light hall window and one cross-entry doorway are identifiable. Chimney-
stack inserted into the cross-entry, backing up against the service end
partition, most of which has been cut away. The C16 bay has plain but
substantial joists on the ground floor. Rough rafters, probably C18 replaced,
on left of stack, but smoke-blackened on right.
