9/109 Thatches


- II

Detached cottage. Late C18/early C19. Coursed rubble of mixed lias and Ham stone; thatched roof between stepped coped
gables; central brick chimney stack. Two storeys, 2 bays, of which bay 1 projects slightly, and probably represents a
later addition to a one-room plan. Bay 1 has a boarded door; bay 2 has two 2-light horizontal-bar casement windows, not
aligned; lean-to and forward projection of later C19 against west gable, with C20 boarded door in front gable of this
unit. Interior not seen, but illustrated details show original west gable entry, large fireplace in east gable with
staircase alongside. A good, although modified, example of a once common humble cottage type. (SSAVERG Somerset
Villages - Long Load and Knole, Long Sutton, 1982).
