SS 82 NW
15/60 Waterhouse
Cottage. Late C17 with early to mid-cl8 addition and alterations. Further altered
and enlarged in the late C20. Random stone rubble with cob to first floor, mostly
cob on stone plinth to rear, and eaves later raised in cob. Old thatched roof,
hippped to left and half-hipped to right, with catslide over rear stair projection.
Stone square end stack. Partly rebuilt and enlarged in concrete block (undergoing
alteration at time of survey - August 1987).
Plan and development: C17 1-room plan, facing south. Larger principal room to right
with external end stack and entrance at left-hand end. Rectangular stair projection
to rear of right-hand end. C18 1-room addition (see straight joint to front) to left
formerly consisting of scullery with loft over. Eaves raised over C17 part, probably
when the cottage was enlarged in the C18. The entrance to the C17 1-roomed cottage
was probably formerly in the left-hand end. The present entrance appears to formerly
have been a window (see straight joint and plastered former jamb), probably becoming
a doorway after the C18 addition to the left. Late-C20 internal alterations and
addition to left (in process at time of survey). 2 storeys.
Exterior: Symmetrical front with 3 windows to first floor and 2 to ground floor; end
windows undergoing rebuilding at time of survey, mostly with concrete block reveals
and concrete lintels. Central first-floor C20 2-light wooden casement with wooden
lintel. Central late-C19 half-glazed 4-panelled door with wooden lintel. Stack to
right-hand gable end with canted sides, weathering above offsets and later curved
bread oven projection to right (see straight joint). Wooden squinch between stack
and left-hand part of wall at eaves level, probably inserted to carry the cob when
the eaves were raised. Stair projection to rear.
Interior: Right-hand ground-floor room has C17 chamfered cross beam and half beams
with scroll stops; joists not morticed and tenoned but resting in recess in beams.
Late-Cl7 fireplace with splayed roughly-dressed stone jambs and deep cambered
chamfered wooden lintel with scroll stops. Bread oven with door to left. Front
window to right of fireplace with integral seat (replaced in late C29). Front door
was formerly window (see straight joint in internal masonry to left with plastered
former jamb). First floor to right-hand part was formerly divided into 2 rooms by
stud partitions, probaby later additions but removed in the late C20. Plastered
soffit at right-hand part of roof, unplastered over former loft to left. Old
thatched roof survives, that part visible over left-hand end is a C18 with principal-
rafter truss and pairs of purlins. Roofspace over right-hand part not inspected.
