SS 70 NW
2/56 Nos. 1 & 2 Pitt Court, including
- cob wall adjoining to north,
formerly listed at Pitt Court
House, originally a farmhouse and later 2 cottages. Late C17-early C18, probably
earlier core, converted to cottages in C19, modernised circa 1970. Plastered cob
on rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 brick brick; corrugated
asbestos roof (formerly thatch).
The plan appears to derive from a 3-room-and-through-passage layout facing south
with service end at right (east) end. The rear of the passage is now blocked by a
stair and the whole house has been much altered in late C17-early C18 and C19
particularly at the left (inner room) end. Projecting end stack to service end room
and projecting rear lateral stack to hall. 2 storeys.
Irregular 4-window front of mostly C20 casements with glazing bars but including 2
C19 oak-framed 3-light casements with glazing bars on ground floor at right end.
The 2 doors to the C19 cottages are C20, a plank door to right to former passage and
glazed door to left. 2 C20 buttresses at left end. Roof is hipped each end.
Interior: the crosswall frames are exposed on the ground floor and the slender
scantling of the roughly-squared timbers suggests late C18 or C19 date. The service
end room fireplace is blocked. The hall has a large soffit-chamfered and runout-
stopped crossbeam, probably late C17-early C18. The soffit includes a groove and
mortises as if it once had a partition below. The large hall fireplace is probably
contemporary. It is built of relatively large blocks of squared rubble and the oak
lintel is soffit-chamfered with runout stops. The oven is C19 brick with a cast-
iron door. There is a cream oven alcove to the left. Inner room end shows only
plain carpentry detail. 8-bay roof of late C17-early C18 A-frame trusses with
pegged lap-jointed collars.
From the right (east) rear end a high plastered cob wall on rubble footings and with
slate coping extends north-westwards alongside the road. There are a series of
external buttresses and it includes a Victorian post box.
