5/129 North Cottage, Widows
House. C16; early C20 one-storey addition to east. Under renovation at time
of survey (June 1987). A 2-cell addition to the parlour end of the range to
the south (qv. Item 5/128), perhaps a shop or-workshop. Timber framed and
plastered, pantiled roof. 2 storeys. Casement windows of 1987; door removed
at time of survey. C18 stack against north gable end. Intact 2-bay frame,
some of the studding closely-spaced. Reverse-curved braces at the corners.
One original first floor window with chamfered mullions. In north west corner
of south bay is part of an arched external doorway. The gable end, which
faces the road, had a jettied upper floor and a further jetty to the gable;
all supporting brackets survive, together with drop finials at the foot of the
gable. This end has evidence for a projecting first floor window with
chamfered mullions and for a large ground floor window, although the frame on
the ground floor no longer survives. On the upper floor the former outside
gable end wall has C17 stippled plasterwork with an interesting and well-
preserved pargetted design. There is quoining around the window, a large
flowerhead to each side and below the window a shield with the initials 'BA'.
Plain floor joists in both cells, that to the south with unchamfered axial
bridging beam, set off-centre. Evidence for stairtrap in north cell, now
blocked. No evidence for original heating. Roof has a single row of clasped
purlins with curved wind braces.
