6/254 Nos.1 and 2 Higher Aish Cottages
Pair of cottages, formerly a farmhouse. Mid to late C17, with additions at the
rear. Stone walls covered with roughcast. Asbestos-slated roof, formerly thatched.
Granite ashlar chimneystack on right-hand gable; rendered stack, with offsets and
thatch weatherings, projecting from left-hand gable-wall. 2-room plan with remains
of a shippon at right-hand end. 2 storeys. 2-window front; all windows have C20
metal casements. Panels of slate-hanging between upper and lower-storey windows;
slates on right covered with cement, those on left apparently renewed. There appear
to be similar, but smaller panels above the upper-storey windows. Gabled entrance-
porch off-centre to left; this doorway may be a later insertion. In right-hand
side-wall an old plank door; above it a wooden hood with hipped slated roof. To
right the stone rear wall of former shippon survives, with doorway immediately
adjoining the house.
Interior: of No. 2 (to right) has chamfered upper-floor beam with scroll-stops.
Ground-floor fireplace has jambs of squared granite blocks; lintel rebuilt in
brick. Roof-trusses, extending over No. 1, appear to be original; heavy, well-made
timbers with gouged carpenter's marks, collars pegged to face of principal rafters,
the latter having slots for thatching spars on their backs. There is a stone wall
between the cottages in the ground storey, but only a timber-framed wall in the
upper storey and none at all in the roof-space. Interior of No. 1 not inspected.
