Listing Text

SP 0738 CHILDSWICKHAM CP THE CROSS
7/160 The Old Cottage
30.7.59
GV II
House. C18, with earlier, possibly C16, remains. Squared limestone with
remains of cruck frame and hipped stone slate roof. Two storeys. North
wall has a window with plain reveals on each floor. At the left is a door
with plain reveals under a stone slated pitched hood. The lintel of the
door frame is inscribed: "W 175- V". This could date the replacement of a
timber-framed wall by the present front wall. Towards the right is a chimney
stack with a very small window in its front wall. A straight joint suggests
that it is earlier than the remainder of the front wall. Against the west
wall is a mid-C20 lean-to addition, with two dormers above. Interior: front
room has inglenook fireplace of stone and a chamfered main joist running from
front to back. The common joists are laid flat. The partition wall between
the front and back ground floor rooms contains a cruck truss. The western
blade is visible from the stair and has an outrider, and a spur now sawn
through. A collar is halved across the blade. The eastern cruck blade is
visible on the first floor.
