The Cobbles


House, possibly built as a pair of houses. Early or mid C17,
some mid C19 and C20 modernisation. Mixed construction; side
and back wall of plastered stone rubble and front wall is
plastered timber-framing; left end and rear lateral stone
rubble stacks with C19 and C20 brick chimneyshafts and some
old pots; slate roof.
PLAN: C17 right-angle plan with 2 parallel ranges; 2 houses by
EXTERIOR: 2-window front is mid C19 superficially but is
structurally C17 with side walls corbelled out to carry
second-floor jetty. Each former ground-floor room has a
doorway to right, both now containing C20 part-glazed doors.
All windows, including front ones of first-floor canted bays,
are horned 4-pane sashes. Plastered front is lightly blocked
out as ashlar and each end are stucco quoins, alternate blocks
with vermiculated rustication. Double-gabled roof with shaped
bargeboards and a terracotta finial on each apex. Rear
includes at least one original C17 oak window frame with
ovolo-moulded mullion.
INTERIOR: Although largely the result of C19 and C20
modernisations, enough C17 fabric revealed to suggest that the
original structure is well-preserved. Main beams have plain
chamfers, the axial beam over the ground-floor room shows no
evidence for an original partition, but axial partitions on
upper floors are probably C17. Fireplaces of the left stack;
ground-floor one (re)built in C20 and first-floor one has a
C20 Windsor chimneypiece. Right rear first-floor fireplace is
original; stone rubble with chamfered and step-stopped oak
lintel, it is now partly blocked to accommodate a C19
cast-iron grate. Newel stair rises from first to second floor
round a timber post in a stone alcove. On the top floor only
the undersides of relatively slender truss principals are
exposed; it is not possible to determine whether these are C17
or C19.
