13/25 The Old Cottage
(formerly listed as The
19.12.75 Old House)
House. C17, probably raised and altered in C18; altered, and porch added,
in C20. Squared sandstone, raised in limestone to front; sides and rear of
coursed rubble sandstone; pantile roof with brick stacks. Cruck-framed.
L-shaped on plan. 2-storey, 2-window front. Entrance in added porch at
right gable end. 2-light casments with diamond leaded glazing to ground
floor, with similar lights in enlarged fire-window opening at end right.
First-floor windows are similar but shorter. Renewed sills and lintels to
all openings. Right end stack; roof hipped at left with stack at base of
roof. Right return: gabled porch contains a studded plank door. Interior.
At right end, an inglenook fireplace with heck and bressumer survives, with
bread oven and spice cupboard. Chamfered broach-stopped spine beam and
chamfered joists with run-out stops. At rear is a beam with mortices
possibly for boxbed partition. At left end the spine beam is stop-chamfered
and the studded partition remains. One raised cruck truss survives in each
gable wall, and one in the centre. The end trusses have been damaged but
the centre truss has a saddle apex with collar and studded partition. Rear
range has chamfer-stopped cross beam, chamfered hearth beam and joists.
Remains of one raised cruck truss close to front range. Towards the centre
an upper cruck couple is reused, possibly from this mutilated truss, raised
on a tie beam and with collar and saddle apex. Interior of house not
inspected. Description based on North Yorkshire and Cleveland Vernacular
Buildings Study Group report number 306: Cropton, The Old Cottage, 1977.
