4/199 Park Cottage, Maltsters, Little
Thatch and Rose Cottage (formerly
22.2.67 listed as Park Cottages)

Row of 4 cottages, formerly a single farmhouse. C17, maybe earlier, much altered in
C19 and C20. Plastered cob and granite stone rubble; stone rubble stacks with
granite ashlar chimneyshafts; thatch roof.
Plan and development: row of 4 cottages facing south-west. All are 1-room plan
cottages and, in order that all rooms be heated, the 2 axial stacks must have served
back-to-back fireplaces. From left to right the cottages are Park Cottage,
Maltsters, Little Thatch and Rose Cottage. The first three of these have front
doorways on right side of their cottages and Rose Cottage has its doorway in the
right end wall. Only limited internal inspection was available at the time of this
survey and therefore it is not possible to outline the original layout although such
features as flying freeholds suggests that the cottages were created by the
subdivision of a former house. All are 2 storeys with secondary rear outshots.
Exterior: irregular 5-window front of various C20 casements with glazing bars. All
the doorways contain C20 doors and Park Cottage and Maltsters have C20 thatch-roofed
porches. Main roof is half-hipped each end.
Interior: only limited access was available at the time of this survey but what was
seen suggests that most is the result of C19 and C20 modernisations. The fireplaces
are blocked and no beams or early joinery detail shows. Roof was not available for
These cottages form part of an attractive group of listed buildings in the vicinity
of the Church of St Andrew (q.v.).
