10/135 The Old Cottage
House, early C16 or earlier. Hall floored, probably C17 and various
alterations of the C18, C19 and C20. Walls of flint, rubble and brickwork
of a variety of builds with rubble dressings. Half-hipped, thatched roof
with brick stacks to gable-ends and part way along the ridge. One and a
half storeys, irregular fenestration (3 gabled dormers). Windows are
mainly 3-light wrought-iron casements with leaded-lights in timber frames.
Central, part-glazed, panelled door under open, half-hipped, tiled porch.
Early insurance company plaque on front wall.
Internally the ceilings have deep stop-chamfered beams and the open
fireplaces have deep chamfered timber bressummers. The front door leads
onto a cross-passage. The roof is supported on 4 true cruck trusses with
extensive smoke blackening. The purlins are wind-braced. The central
cruck has a chamfered arch braced collar, the chamfer taken to a point
through an ogee curve. The adjacent windbraces are also chamfered. This
suggests the house originally had a two bay hall open to the roof with an
open hearth. The roof retains its original smoke-blackened wattle lining
under the thatch. The position of the C17 fireplaces suggests that the
house was converted into a pair of cottages after being ceiled. (RCHM, Dorset,
vol. IV, p. 40, no. 13).
