(South East side) Thistledown Cottage


House. Probably C16, altered C17, C18 and C19 and extended C20. Timber-framed, partly rebuilt in brick and stone. Concrete tile roof with gabled ends. Brick axial stacks. PLAN: 4-room plan with C20 1-room plan extension on right [E] end. At least the centre right -hand bay was open to the roof and heated from an open-hearth fire. Floors and an axial stack between the centre two rooms were inserted in about the C17. The left [W] bay was probably also added in the C17 or early C18. There is an outshut behind the centre rooms. EXTERIOR: 1 storey and attic. Asymmetrical 5-window south front with C20 casements and dormers breaking eaves with flat roofs; doorway to left with gabled porch; addition on right end partly weatherboarded. Storey-posts exposed in rear wall; rear outshut to right of centre. INTERIOR: chamfered axial ceiling beams with hollow-step stops. Stack between centre rooms with back-to-back fireplaces with cambered chamfered timber lintels and rebuilt ovens. Timber-framed partition walls and some exposed framing in rear wall. Roof consists of simple common-rafter couples; the bay to the right of centre with square-set ridge-piece and straight wind-braces is smoke-blackened and the closed tie-beam truss on the right is also blackened on its right [E] side. Some blackened roof timbers survive at either end, including hips and battens.
