Tudor Cottage (36)


Pair of houses in row. Early/mid C16, some early C19 to front.
Braced close-stud timber-frame with plaster panels, painted
brick underbuild, tile roof, brick stacks. Plan with front
jettied range parallel to street, first floor orginally open
to roof.
Jettied front in 2 storeys with attic, and 2 gabled back
wings. 1+1-windowed; a very small gabled dormer set high in
the roof slope to No.36, 3-light and 2-light replacement
casements with horizontal bars at first floor, and a 16-pane
and square 12-pane to ground floor. To left and centre plank
stable doors in broad frames, each on 2 stone steps. Brick
stack to right gable, and to back wing, which is timber-framed
with weather-boarded gable end.
INTERIOR: No.36 has a heavy transverse beam in the
ground-floor front room, and a deep rear wing. At first floor
is a wood bressumer fire to the central chimney breast, but
elsewhere fireplaces are blocked or renewed, and there is a
very large tie-beam in the framed wall. The attic, with large
rough purlins has some wind-bracing, and all members are
large. The wing also has wind-bracing, and a rear gable with
braced framing. Remains of a spiral wood staircase to the
attic level.
No.37 is similar, but with less exposed work, and alterations
to the rear wing. Both main entrance doors have several
battens to the back. The properties are in one ownership, and
spatial division is not confined to the central party wall.
