Listing Text

NORTH MOLTON EAST STREET (north side),
SS 7229-7329
18/137 Nos. 1 and 2, Hodges Cottage
-
GV II
House now divided. C17, possibly earlier. Late C19 or C20 alterations. Rendered,
probably over stone rubble and cob. Gable-ended Welsh-slate roof, formerly thatched.
C17 dressed-stone axial stack with weatherings and string course. C19 brick top to
right-hand stack.
Plan: Probably 3-room and through passage plan, facing south (ground falls to
right). Probably consisting of hall with axial stack to right (backing onto through
passage), through passage and probable former service end to right with integral end
stack, and probable former inner room to left. House divided, probably in the C19,
with separate house formed to right of through passage in lower end (internal
partitions inserted and doorway inserted in front wall). 2 storeys.
Exterior: Asymmetrical 4-window front; mainly late C19 or early C20 2-light wooden
casements, small-paned to ground floor. Roughly-central cross-passage entrance with
early C19 5-panelled door (lower 2 panels beaded flush, middle panels recessed and
upper panels glazed) and inserted mid to late C19 4-panelled door (upper 2 panels
glazed) between first and second windows from right. Three battered buttresses to
front.
Interior not inspected, but doorway between through passage and former hall (central
ground-floor room) noted as having a late C18 door with 6 raised and fielded panels.
The plan of this house suggests that it might have late-Medieval origins but this
could not be confirmed at the time of survey (September 1987) as an interior
inspection was not possible.
