3/80 Trumps Cottage


House. Early C17 or earlier origins, partial rebuilding probably of the C19.
Whitewashed rendered cob; slate roof gabled at ends; projecting right gable end
stack, axial stack.
The present plan is 3 rooms wide and single depth with a rear gabled stair turret and
a rear left lean-to. The original plan is not entirely clear as the left-hand end of
the house has been rebuilt. The right-hand end of the house consists of an early
C17 room at the right with a rear stair turret.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front with 2 gabled dormers and a buttress on the
front to the left. The house has been rebuilt to the left of the buttress with a
doorway on the extreme left. A second doorway on the extreme right leads directly
into the right-hand room. Parts of an old wallplate survive on the front at the
right. Fenestration of 2-light casements, 6 panes per light.
Interior The right-hand room has a large open fireplace with 1 ashlar jamb, a
chamfered stopped lintel and a bread oven. 1 cross beam and 1 half-beam are moulded,
the half-beam with run-out stops. The middle room has a plain beam with mortises
probably for a former plank and muntin screen. The stair turret has chamfered
stopped doorways. 2 jointed cruck roof trusses survive below a later roof, the
trusses formerly had a threaded ridge and trenched purlins.
An attractive early C17 or earlier house close to the church.
