2/17 Longhope Cottage and Hillside
2 adjoining cottages, formerly tenement farmhouse. Early C16 fabric, remodelled in
late C16/early C17 and divided into two occupations in C20. Rendered stone rubble
and cob. Cottage to left has slate roof renewed circa 1980, cottage to right has
slate roof to front, corrugated iron roof to rear. Stacks at each gable end, that
to right with offsets, and front lateral, former hall stack to Longhope Cottage
with tall rendered shaft.
Formerly 3-room through-passage open hall house, the through-passage now taken into
hall and rear doorway blocked. Partition inserted at lower end of hall to form 2
cottages with doorway inserted to centre of inner room as entrance to right hand
cottage. 2 storeys. 3-window range C19/C20 2-light casements, 3 panes per light
to right, C20 casements to right. Two 2-light casements 6 panes per light to
right, C20 casement to right. Two 2-light casements 6 panes per light flanking C20
flat-roofed porch to left and C20 2-light casement to right of 4-panelled door to
Hillside, the upper 2 panels glazed. Two storeys rear outshut to Hillside, the 2-
light casements with old bottle glass.
Interior: Single wide chamfered hollow stepped stop ceiling beam to room to left of
former through-passage. Timber lintel to hall fireplace partially plastered over.
C19 joinery and dado matchboarding to Hillside ground floor room with corner
cupboard. Access to roof to Longhope Cottage only, with solid cob partition rising
to apex of roof between hall and room to left, with two C18/early C19 trusses over
hall with X apex and side-pegged collars, but reusing some of the original smoke-
blackened purlins. The cob partition and change in first floor levels suggests
that the upper end may always have been ceiled, the hall itself originally open to
the roof and later floored over.
