(North Side)

19/83 No. 1

GV II


Cottage. Early C17 with mid-late C17 alterations. Extended c1984. Timber
framed, rendered, on rubblestone plinth with thatched roof of combed wheat
reed, half hipped to end. Framed end stack, inserted mid-late C17 with
rubblestone outer wall. The cottage is of one bay only and lies at the rear
of Nos. 13, 15 Low Cross from which it was divided by a narrow passage.
Evidence has been found to suggest that the cottage possibly extended further
to the West. One storey and attic. Two dormers. The fenestration of two
casements and one doorway are all 1984. Inside: the framing is, in the
main, intact. There are upward braces to the tie beams and the framing of
the chimney is exposed. The ceiling main beams are tusk-tenoned to the
studs. The roof is of clasped side purl in construction with rafters of
substantial scantling. The original use of the cottage is uncertain but the
fact that it seems to have been unheated may indicate a barn or store,
converted to a detached kitchen when the stack was inserted.
