NYMET ROWLAND
SS 70 NW
2/51 Nymet Cottage
-
- II

Cottage. C17 and C18 with circa 1980 modernisation and extensions. Plastered cob
on rubble footings; cob stack topped with C20 brick; thatch roof except kitchen
outshot with concrete tile roof.
L-shaped building. The main range facing east onto the road has 2 rooms with an
axial stack between the 2 serving the larger left (southern) room. The heated room
is C17 and the unheated right room may be contemporary or an C18 addition. The rear
block at right angles behind the unheated room and the kitchen outshot in the angle
of the blocks are both circa 1980. The stairs are circa 1980 and the site of the
originals is not known. 2 storeys.
The front has 2 ground floor windows only and both are circa 1980 casements with
glazing bars. The left one is probably blocking the original door. The doorway is
now on the right (northern) end. The roof is half-hipped each end. All other
windows are circa 1980 casements with glazing bars.
Interior was modernised circa 1980 but the integrity of the older part is preserved.
The main heated room crossbeam has a roughly-finished soffit chamfer but the joists
have been replaced. The large fireplace is built of stone rubble and its oak lintel
is soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. The oven was relined in late C19 and given
a cast iron door. Only that part of the roof over the unheated room is accessible
and includes an A-frame truss with pegged lap-jointed collar, either C17 or C18.
Over the heated room the feet of 2 A-frame trusses can be seen and are probably C17.
