5/203 Nos 1 and 2 Reeds Farm Cottages

II

Pair of cottages, former farmhouse. Probably C17, some C19 alterations when
divided, some fire damage in 1988. Timber-framed. Ground floor is underbuilt
with Flemish bond red brick with burnt headers (more than one build) and the
frame above is clad with peg-tile. Brick stack and chimneyshaft. Peg-tile
roof.

Plan: Pair of cottages in what appears to have been a 3-room lobby entrance
plan house facing south south west, say south. The left (west) end room is
unheated, a former service room. An axial stack between the other rooms
serves back-to-back fireplaces. Front lobby entrance was blocked when the
house was divided into cottages and new doorways provided.

2 storeys with attics in the roofspace and probably secondary lean-to outshots
to rear.

Exterior: Irregular 2-window front of C20 casements without glazing bars.
Left of centre is a doorway containing a C20 plank door and there is another
similar to the other cottage round the corner in the right end wall. Roof is
half-hipped both ends and contains 2 front dormer windows under hipped roofs.
The chimneyshaft contains some old, probably C17, brickwork.

Interior: Not available for inspection at the time of this survey.
