Listing Text



(East side)
Nos.55 AND 57


House, now two dwellings. Late C17 or early C18. Limestone
rubble with steeply-pitched roof, recently slated, originally
thatched, brick stacks to gable ends. Each cottage now
single-unit plan with flying freehold of No.55 to the left
which is 2-window range, over part of No.57 which is
one-window range.
2 storeys. Timber lintels and first-floor windows are at eaves
level. The entrance to No.55 is in the left return where some
timber insertions at the corners sneck up the rubblestone; the
door opening to the right has been narrowed to accommodate a
C19 planked door with an iron knocker: to the left of the
door, the whole gable end is a projecting stack slightly
corbelled out at first-floor level where there is a 2-light
C18 leaded casement window with C20 glass. The west facade of
No.55, facing The Pippin, has two C19 two-light casement
windows without glazing bars to each floor and a vertical
joint between them, implying that No.57 was once symmetrical.
No.57 has a C20 door to the left and a C20 two-light casement
window to each floor, a half submerged basement window
INTERIOR of No.55: the room to the ground floor is
stone-flagged with an open fire to the rear left corner, a
studded wall to the right and a chamfered crossbeam with slots
and holes, probably re-used. The C20 staircase has been
repositioned, the first floor has elm boards and 2 partly
exposed pegged A-frame trusses.
