Listing Text

Denbury Village
- Nos. 19, 21 and 23


Three cottages, possibly a single house originally. C16 or C17 with C20 additions
at the rear. Roughcast over stone or cob. Nos. 19 and 21 have asbestos slate
roofs, No. 23 concrete tiles (said to have been thatched formerly). Gabled each
end, but left-hand end formerly hipped (information from owner of No. 19).
Rendered tapering chimney-stack with added brick shaft on top, off-centre to left
on ridge between Nos. 19 and 21. In right-hand gable a large projecting stone
stack with tapered top. At rear of No. 19 another large projecting stack with
plain top. Possibly a former 3-room and through-passage plan with hall stack (in
No. 21) backing on to passage, but there are unusual features. Two storeys
heightened from one and a half storeys in C20 shows in wall surface. Irregular 5-
window front. All windows have C19 or early C20 wood casements with 6 and 8 panes,
all doors C20. Glazed door to right of No. 19 has lean-to slated canopy above;
replaces a much wider former opening (thinner wall and large hinge visible inside).
One wide window to left, two smaller windows in second storey. No. 21 has doorway
to left with lean-to slated canopy. One window to right in ground storey, two
windows in second storey; sill of right-hand second-storey window drops almost to
floor level. No. 23 has doorway to left, one window to right in ground storey.
Single window in centre of second storey. Interiors: no division between the
cottages above ceiling-level in second storey (information from owner of No. 19)
but solid walls below this level. No. 21 has two slightly unorthodox side-pegged
jointed-cruck trusses (possibly with rebuilt upper sections), one of them partly
embedded in the stone party wall with No. 19. Latter has one similar truss
(formerly with threaded purlin), the lower parts removed. No. 19 has very rough
floor beam in ground storey. Fireplace has splayed sides, the lintel having been
replaced; no oven, so presumably the lower room was not a kitchen. No. 21 has
chamfered ceiling-beams with mutilated step-stops in ground storey. Fireplace has
plain wood lintel and a stone-lined oven on left-hand side. To left of fireplace a
small cupboard with C18 panelled door with strap-hinges,the surface of panel with
tooled design. In party wall with No. 23 an old plank door, the wooden jambs
plain. No. 23 said (by owner) to have large concealed fireplace with wood lintel
in east wall.
