3/126 Reeves Cottage
House. Probably mid C16 with later C16 and C17 improvements. Plastered cob on
rubble footings; stone rubble stack with C20 brick chimney shaft; thatch roof.
Originally a 3-roommand-throughmpassage plan house facing east with inner room at
left (south) end. Service end demolished probably in C19 and therefore former
passage now at right (north) end. Rear passage now occupied by C20 stair. Large
lateral stack projecting to front of hall. 2 storeys. Irregular 2-window front
of C20 casements. The 2 ground floor windows lay to left of hall stack and on
first floor is a window to left of stack and another in the stack projection to
right of chimney. Both latter have slight thatch eyebrows over. At right end is
the front passage doorway containing C16 oak crank-headed doorframe and C20 door.
Roof is gable-ended.
Good interior: passage-hall partition is a C16 oak plank-and-muntin screen, its
muntins chamfered with worn, possibly roll, stops. Hall has an inserted ceiling
carried on an early C17 soffit-chamfered and late step stopped crossbeam.
Fireplace is,probably contemporary. It is built of stone rubble and has been
reduced in width to right. It has a plain chamfered oak lintel, a Cl9 brick-lined
side oven to left and small window through the back right corner. Another probably
C16 oak plank-and-muntin screen at upper end of hall is exposed only on reverse
side where muntins are not chamfered. Inner roan, now a kitchen, is small and
unheated. First floor crosswalls are plastered and may be C16 or C17 oak frames.
A side-pegged jointed cruck is exposed over the hall and although roof is
inaccessible the section over the hall is said to be smoke-blackened indicating
that the hall was originally open to the roof and heated by an open hearth hall.
All 3 first floor rooms have high ceilings under collar level with simple C17
moulded plaster cornices.
