Listing Text


858-1/4/37 (West side)
03/09/73 Lynton Museum and attached boundary
walls and gate
(Formerly Listed as:
(West side)
St Vincent Cottage)


Detached house. Mid C18 with mid C19 windows. Limewashed
rubble, stone slate front slope and slate rear slope to roof.
A symmetrical block with a small rear range, and a narrow link
brought forward to the right, connecting with St Vincent (qv).
2 storeys; 3-window front, all 2-light casement with margin
bars, to slate cills. Central 6-panel door. There are brick
gable stacks, and the left gable is plain, the right gable
slate hung. The rear has a small gabled wing to the left, and
there is a glazed pent-roofed gallery projecting forward to
the right.
INTERIOR: the ground floor is in 2 rooms without dividing
passage, with a lime-ash floor to the left; no beams or joists
are exposed. A lateral stair rises to the left, with a landing
balustrade with thin turned balusters. The first floor has
many original wide boards.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: enclosing the small garden to the front
is a rubble wall to on-edge stone coping, with decorative iron
gate to square piers, opposite the entrance door.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the house, which lies set well back from the
adjoining St Vincent (qv), at one stage was a service range to
the latter, and at this time the link was probably
constructed. The property was given to the town by Henry
Sutton, first Secretary of the Exmoor Society, in 1962.
