The following building shall be added to the list:

ST 6316
1/344 No 9 (Fernside)


Cottage. Circa late C17 or early C18 remodelling and extension of an earlier
range remodelled again in C19. Stone rubble, rendered at front. Plain tile
roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks with tall brick shafts. Plan: 2-room
plan front range formerly with central entrance passage, is now one large room
with a stack at the right hand end. The very thick wall at the back of the
left hand end probably indicates that the left hand room was originally heated
from a lateral stack. At the rear a short wide wing with a gable end stack
was possibly originally a parallel rear range. Exterior: 2 storeys. Nearly
symmetrical 2 window front. First floor 2 late C19 2-light casements with
glazing bars. On ground floor 2 late C19 sashes with vertical glazing bars
only and doorway to right of centre with C20 door. At rear a wide gable-ended
wing to right with a gable end stack and C19 and C20 casement windows.
Interior: The partitions between the rooms in the front range have been removed,
the right-hand end fireplace is C20 and the putative rear left lateral fireplace
is blocked. In the left end wall a china-cupboard niche with a moulded plaster
reeded domed head. In the rear wing 2 chamfered ceiling beams. The roof space
is inaccessible but feet of straight principal rafters are visible. The
internal joinery is largely C19 with C20 alterations.
