2/37 Priestley Cottage

- II

Former farmhouse; c.1600 with C20 extensions. 2 cell lobby-entrance plan,
perhaps originally with cross-passage. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and
plastered. Concrete tile roof. C20 small-pane casements. Gabled C20
entrance porch with boarded door. Good complete unmoulded timber-framing
fully exposed. The hall and parlour both have flat ceiling joists, chamfered
with lambstongue stops. Evidence for diamond-mullioned windows. Wind-braced
clasped-purlin roof; the open trusses are without tie-beams instead having
collar-beams. In the hall the joist chamfers stop for a screen, apparently
once forming a cross-passage against the gable wall; possibly there was once a
service cell on the site of the present C20 extension to right. Back-to-back
open lintelled fireplaces in parlour and hall, the latter with an ovolo-
moulded lintel.
