5/10 Venn Cottage
Cottage. Probably C18/early C19. Whitewashed rendered cob and stone; thatched roof
with plain ridge, gabled at left end, hipped at right end; projecting left end stack,
rear right stack.
No access to interior at time of survey but a ground plan of 1961 by A. W. Everett
(D.R.O.) shows a single depth arrangement, 2 rooms wide with a larger heated room to
the left (presumably the living room/kitchen) and a smaller room to the right
(presumably for services). The rear right stack serves an angle fireplace in the
rear right corner of the service room, this may be a post C18 addition. 2 doors on
the front suggest that the building may have been subdivided into 2 small cottages at
one time. The Everett plan shows the stair in a rectangular rear left projection,
rising from the larger room. C20 rear right lean-to with a corrugated iron roof.
2 storeys. Approximately symmetrical 2 window front; the eaves thatch eyebrowed over
the 2 first floor windows. 2 adjacent plank doors in the centre; fenestration of 2
light casements, 6-panes per light except for ground floor right which is a C20 metal
Venn Cottage is adjacent to the A396, gable end to the road and sited below the level
of the road. Features of interest may survive internally and an interior inspection
might necessitate a revision of the dating of the building.
