Oak Cottage [formerly listed as No. 13 (Oak Cottage) and No. 12]
Farmhouse, latterly divided into 2 cottages, now one house. Early C17
with later additions and alterations. Timber framed with painted brick
infill; plain tile roof. 2 storeys and attic probably formerly lit
to gable ends; apparently of 3 framed bays. Framing: close studding
to ground floor with long straight tension braces; hewn jetty to first
floor, perhaps originally continuing to gable ends but ground floor
underbuilt in brick, with moulded bressumer supported on carved brackets
to corners and centre; widely spaced vertical posts and middle rail
with diagonal struts forming diamond patterns. Two C20 three-light
leaded casements directly below eaves and one to ground floor to left,
all in position of original windows with carved brackets below cills.
C20 panelled door roughly to centre inserted in position of fourth original
window. Central red brick ridge stack. Interior: not inspected but
likely to be of interest. B.O.E. p.301.
