1/29 Church Cottage
Cottage. C17, modernised with service extension circa 1975. Plastered cob on
rubble footings; cob stack topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
2-room plan cottage facing south, the right (eastern) room is larger than the left.
An axial stack between serves larger room only. Front lobby entrance between the
rooms. Circa 1975 flat-roofed single storey service extension to rear of left
room. Main block is 2 storeys.
Irregular front of 3 ground floor and 2 first floor windows comprising a variety of
late C19 and C20 casements, the latest without glazing bars. Central C20 stable-
type door with sidelight and monopitch thatched hood. A third first floor window
towards left end is thought to be blocked. If there were it would balance the
front. Roof is hipped each end.
Interior has plain carpentry detail. There are no main beams. The fireplace is
stone rubble and cob and its oak lintel is soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. The
oven was inserted or relined in the late C19. Roof is inaccessible but the base of
a probably original A-frame truss shows over the larger room.
A Church Cottage, but not surely identified as this one, is documented in 1679.
