Vale View Cottages
Pair of Cottages, early C17 with later alterations and additions. Thought to
have originated as a longhouse derivative. Brick in English Garden Wall Bond
with some timbers, thatched roof, now covered by asbestos-cement sheets.
Single storey and attic, 3 bays, the original cottage, north-east, is only one
bay. Boarded doors front and rear and flush casements, the north-east cottage
has multiple glazing front and rear. Truss with "V" struts exposed in
north-east gable. At the rear both corner posts of the original cottage
remain as do the front and rear wall-plates, morticed for small framing.
First floor windows are in the south-west gable and raking dormers. Gable
barge boards. The south-west cottage has a gable-end stack whereas the
north-east cottage has a party wall stack which would have originally been at
its south-west gable. Interior: The north-east cottage is baffle entry into
the single ground floor room with the winder staircase rising to the left of
the front door against the stack. Beam over a wide and deep fireplace and a
single chamfered ceiling beam. In the single room attic a "V" strutted truss,
similar to the gable truss, is over the party wall. Thatched rafters and
exposed purlins with wind braces, cleft thatch and rafters. In the south-west
cottage the use of primitive tree purlins suggests an agricultural use or
later Cl7 construction, it is more altered than the smaller cottage and is
divided into rooms but has exposed beams, a cottage staircase, boarded doors
and cleft thatch rafters.
