Cottage. Mid-late C17 with C20 service extension. Plastered cob on stone rubble
footings; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof,
corrugated iron to service outshot.
2-room plan cottage facing east away from the road with central through-passage.
The right (northern) room has an outer front corner stack and the left room has a
projecting end stack. To rear the central section is thrown forward a little and
there is a C20 service outshot to rear of the left room. Main cottage is 2 storeys.
Irregular frontage has 3 ground floor and 1 first floor windows being a variety of
late C19 and C20 casements and fixed pane windows with glazing bars and C20 door to
passage. The eaves are deep particularly so on the left side. Roof is half-hipped
to right and gable-ended to left. The left end wall is propped by 2 large probably
C20 buttresses.
Interior: shows mostly the result of C20 modernisation which nevertheless seems
mostly superficial. The left room has a soffit-chamfered and scroll-stopped axial
beam and the right room has a plain soffit-chamfered crossbeam; both C17. The
fireplaces are blocked by C20 grates. The roof is inaccessible although the feet of
the truss principals show and suggest that the C17 roof survives intact.
