7/100 Coriander Cottage
Cottage. Probably early C18, but possibly earlier fabric concealed, with C19 and C20
alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends.
Rendered stack with tapered cap at left end shared with No.6 (q.v)
Plan: Single large heated room with stair outshut to rear to left of through-passage,
the latter divided axially to form small rear kitchen. Complex development obscured
by replacement of roof structure and C20 internal alterations. However, the most
likely sequence of development would suggest that Coriander Cottage was built in the
early C18 as an infill site between the Malthouse to right and the Old Bakehouse to
left, both of which retain clear evidence of having been open hall houses (q.v.) When
the parlour end of the Old Bakehouse was partitioned off to form what is now No.6
(q.v.) it seems likely that Coriander Cottage was then built to form a 1 room plan
extension to No.6, there being clear evidence in the first floor blocked doorway of
the 2 properties having been interconnected. At a later stage, No.6 and Coriander
Cottage were themselves divided into 2 occupations, the stair outshut being added to
the rear of the latter to provide separate first floor access. The through-passage
is clearly also a later modification, the spine beam cutting through the inserted
partition. No rear extensions.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 2 window range. All late C19 or early C20 4 paned sashes. 4
panelled door towards right end, the upper 2 panels glazed.
Interior: Unchamfered rough spine beam. Fireplace rebuilt in C20. C19 plank doors
to stair outshut and under-stair cupboard, the latter with H-L hinges. C19 window-
Roof. Entirely replaced and heightened in C20, except for single truss, which
survives close to the stack and which has principals of light scantling and X apex.
The truss appears to be smoke-blackened, but the carpentry dates it no earlier than
the C18 and the blackening is probably explained by the proximity to the stack.
