SX8860 KIRKHAM STREET
1947-1/5/39 (South side)
13/03/51 Chantry Cottage and Kirkham Cottage
House, divided into 2. Probably late C17. Picturesque.
MATERIALS: Rendered local red breccia; thatched roof; stacks
with rendered shafts.
PLAN: Overall Z-plan. The main block is single-depth with one
principal room heated from an end stack (now axial with the
wing) and an entrance into the end of an outshut on the front
which also contains a winder stair. The wing, which is on a
slightly different axis is one room on plan heated from an end
stack with a later block at right-angles to the rear.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. The entrance elevation of the main block
has a one-window front, the verge thatch swept down over the
projecting end of the outshut to the left. C20 boarded front
door into outshut with ornamental strap hinges. Windows mostly
C20 timber casements with diamond leaded panes. To the right a
3-light casement under a slate pentice, small 2-light casement
above. The right return, the front of the wing, has a C20
boarded door and one ground and one first floor 3-light
casement. The front of the outshut, parallel with the road,
has a 3-light casement. The left return of this elevation has
a probably C18 small one-light stair window. Pitched stone
yard in front of house.
INTERIOR: The main block has roughly carpentered beams with
C20 joists. Fireplace partially blocked. Timber winder stair
to first floor. Principal rafters visible on the first floor
are quite substantial straight timbers, suggesting a C17 or
C18 A-frame roof construction. The wing is entirely plain
inside with almost all the internal carpentry renewed in the
last ten years; fireplace blocked.
HISTORY: An early 1930s photograph of the building indicates
that the external openings are unaltered since that date.
