SWINDON (South side)
Small detached cottage. Probably late C17 or early C18 extended right by one
bay beyond stack. Rendered stonework, some remains of timber framing; thatched
roof. May have begun as single heated room with gable entry with attached farm
outbuilding to left, and room later added right; position of stair not clear.
One storey and attic; front, to garden, has 3 oriel windows with stone slate
pent roofs, and two eyebrow dormers. Return, right, a plastic framed 2-light
casement to upper level; gable to road has 2-light casement above similar in
an extension with thatch. Back has 2 eyebrow dormers to right and one small
light, centre; projecting bread oven below dormers. All windows late C20 wood
replacements. Small stack to former right gable.
Interior much modified but some timber framing in internal wall near road end;
rough roof principals, ties, and purlins carrying early, rough rafters. In section
near road, roof is split poles: this may have been an outbuilding originally.
C19 bread oven in centre room, back, without flue. A sole surviving traditional
building in an area developed in the late C20.
