The list was previously amended in respect of this entry on 15 January 1990.



3/294 Rose Cottage, north-west
of Brembridge Farmhouse


House. Probably late C16 or early C17 remodelled late in C17 and with late C19
alterations. Rendered cob on stone rubble base with brick pitching and window
surrounds. Corrugated asbestos roof with gable ends. Cob stack at left end,
truncated and with stone oven at base. 3-room plan, the lower left end room the
kitchen with a gable end stack, the right hand room probably originally the hall
is unheated and the smaller central bay is partitioned axially with a small
unheated room at the back and an entrance lobby at the front giving into all 3
rooms. There is a later doorway giving direct entry into the front of the lower
left end room. The floor was inserted into the hall later in C17 probably when
the lower gable end stack was built. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window
south west front, the first floor windows breaking the eaves. Late C19 or early
C20 2-light casements with glazing bars. Doorways at centre and left of centre
with late C19 plank doors, the left one has small late C19 gabled brick porch. At
the rear the higher left end of back wall has collapsed. Circa late C19 casements
on ground floor at centre, a small C17 chamfered wooden contour frame on ground
floor to right and a circa C18 2-light window above. Lower (north west) gable end
truncated cob stack with stone rubble oven at base and blocked window on left.
The higher (south east) gable end is built into back blocking ground floor window
and has late C19 casement on first floor. Interior: Lower left end room has
cambered deeply chamfered cross-beam with large straight-cut stops and relatively
small gable end fireplace with chamfered timber lintel with ogee stops on rebuilt
brick gables and with clay oven. The higher right hand room (hall) has chamfered
axial beam with run-out stops, the end set into blocked gable end window indicates
it is a later insertion. The partition with timber grille above between entrance
lobby and central unheated room is late C19 replacement. The plank and muntin
screen between the central bay and former hall is original and has chamfered
muntins with mason's mitres and diagonal stops, and 2 doorways, one into central
unheated room and the other with chamfered arch into the entrance lobby. The
plastered wattle-and-daub stud partition above is probably a C17 insertion into
the only truss in the house. This has side-pegged jointed crucks, the collar
tenoned to the principals. The 3rd-bay roof is complete and has no other trusses
and the diagonal ridge-piece and trenched purlins are supported on the gable end
walls and the solid wall partition between the lower left and central bays. The
roof timbers over the higher right hand end are smoke-blackened. Late C19 plank
doors and winder staircase in lower left rear corner. Note: This house is a very
rare survival that represents a transitional phase, combining the Medieval
open-hall and the C17 unheated central room arrangement.
