- II

House, possibly formerly 2 cottages. Mid to late C17. Colourwashed rendered cob,
thatched roof hipped at ends, brick end stacks.
The original plan is uncertain, but there are 2 possibilities; either a single depth
2-room plan house with 2 heated rooms and small unheated service rooms at either end
or, a pair of C17 cottages each with 1 heated room and 1 small outer service room
with a partition wall dividing the cottages in the centre. The position of the
original entrance or entrances is unclear, at present the house has a baffle entry
against the right-hand (lower end) stck under a winder stair which is adjacent to the
stack. The partition wall between the 2 principal rooms in the centre has been
2 storeys. Irregular 5-window front with 1- and 2-light C20 casements with square-
leaded panes, eaves thatch eyebrowed over first floor windows, C20 porch to right of
centre. The rear of the house has a small blocked timber window, probably C17, on
the first floor.
Interior The fireplaces have stone rubble jambs and plain timber lintels, the left-
hand (higher) end fireplace has been adapted when the small left-hand room was heated
from the old stack. 2 chamfered cross beams with bar stops. The apex of the roof is
not thoroughly accessible but the visible common rafters may be contemporary with the
late C17 features elsewhere.
Church Bridge is on a prominent corner site on Church Lane with an attractive cob and
thatch exterior.
