6/18 Valley Cottage

- II

House; early C16, extended late C16. 1 storey with attics. 3-cell plan with
cross-entry. Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roof formerly thatched;
half-hipped at right-hand end. An axial chimney of red brick and 2 external
chimneys, all C19. Four C19 gabled casement dormers. Small-pane casements of
C19 or early C20. Two late C20 entrance doors of stable type, the upper part
glazed with small panes. Heavy medieval framing fully exposed: tension-braced
studwork and massive unchamfered floor joists. An original rear cross-entry
doorway, converted to a window, has a 4-centred arched head. Coupled rafter
roof. The house was originally of 2-cell end-chimney plan; a diamond-
mullioned window now in a 1st floor partition was at the east gable. The
original chimney was probably timber-framed; a 2-bay parlour cell was added
beyond it in later C16 and the chimney rebuilt in brick with lintelled open
fireplaces in hall and parlour.
