SS 70 SE
3/66 Dicklegg End

Cottage, once 2 cottages. Early C17. Plastered cob on rubble footings; cob or
stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
2-room plan cottage facing east away from the road. At left (south) end is a
through passage with a small chamber above set between the main house and adjoining
Berries Brook (q.v.) Left room has an axial stack backing onto the passage and
right room has projecting end stack with secondary oven projection. 2 storeys.
Irregular 4-window front of various late C19 and C20 replacement casements. The
first floor right end window has a thatch eyebrow over. The right floor right end
window has a thatch eyebrow over. The right room breaks forward a little from
front. Each room has a door to left of window. The right room has main door with
C20 porch under corrugated asbestos monopitch roof which is supported by shaped
late C19 brackets for former hood. Left room door and window now behind C20
conservatory. Gable-ended roof.
Interior: the right room has a C17 plain-chamfered crossbeam and a stone rubble
fireplace with its oak lintel ogee-moulded with late step stop enriched with
incised motifs. The smaller left room has C17 crossbeam, soffit-chamfered with
scroll stops, and fireplace here is blocked. Roof is inaccessible although the
base of the truss principals show over right room suggesting that original roof
structure survives. Over left room purlins of large scantling carry the roof
between the internal cob crosswall and left end stack. The quality of the
fireplace in the right room suggests that it was not originally 2 small cottages
but became so in C18. Reunited as a single house in C20.
