into the corner of the churchyard. The larger left (south) room is heated by a
gable-end stack. 2 storeys with secondary lean-to outshot on the left end.

C20 casements with glazing bars. Central doorway contains a C20 plank door behind a
contemporary gabled porch. The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: was much modernised circa 1970 and much of the carpentry detail was
replaced then. The crossbeam in the larger room was replaced although the slender
joists are probably original. The fireplace was lined with brick at the same time
although its original chamfered oak lintel is exposed. Roof not inspected.
This cottage is one of a group of attractive traditional thatch-roofed buildings in
the vicinity of the Church of St Nicholas (q.v).
