10/76 The Cottage
House. Mid-C16 with mid-C19 alterations and additions. Timber framed
with plastered and painted brick infill panels; plain tile roof; brick
ridge stack and integral end stacks. T-shaped plan: fully floored
hall range of 3 framed bays aligned east-west facing north, with a 2-
bay parlour wing at the east end. Mid-C19 rear wing attached to the
hall range. 2 storeys; close studding a full storey in height, with
straight braces to the hall range and long straight tension braces to
the parlour wing. Gabled parlour wing to the left with a C20 ground
floor casement and a C16 first floor window with ovolo-moulded mullions
and a carved sill bracket. The gable is jettied out on carved brackets
and the framing is composed of small square panels containing quatrefoils.
The hall range has a central C20 gabled porch with gabled dormer above
containing a mid-C19 glazing bar sash with segmental head; C19 2-storey
canted bay window to the right with C20 glazing bar windows and a hipped
roof. Single-storey canted projection to the left in the re-entrant
angle between hall range and parlour wing. The right hand end of the
hall range has a C19 glazing bar sash with horns to the ground floor,
a blocked C16 window to the first floor, and a collar and tie beam roof
truss carrying 2 pairs of purlins. To the rear of the hall range at
this end is a mid-C19 canted bay with 12-pane glazing bar sashes and hipped
roof. The east and south walls of the wing have 4 tiers of small square
panels. Interior. Entry is now directly into the central hall.
This room has C16 panelling on the west wall incorporating a door, with
a decorative frieze; intersecting cross and spine beams and a timer
bressumer over the fireplace all have ovolo-mouldings with run out stops.
The chimney stack at the east end of the hall backs on to a narrow bay
which probably formed the original entrance passage. This passage
has been blocked by a second stack which heated the parlour wing. The
ground floor of the parlour wing is divided into a large northern bay
with ovolo-moulded cross beam, and a narrow southern bay which may have
been a service room. The south gable of the parlour wing has herringbone
patterned struts which are not visible from the outside.
