Cottage, originally 2 cottages. Mid-late C17, modernised and enlarged as a single
house circa 1970. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; cob or stone rubble
stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof, concrete tile to circa 1970 extension.
Plan: originally two 1-room plan cottages facing south-west. The left former
cottage has a gable-end stack and the right former cottage has a rear diagonal
corner stack against the party wall with the left cottage. Now the 2 cottages have
been knocked together to make a single house. The circa 1970 single storey
extension on the right end was built on the site of a third cottage. Main house is
Exterior: main house has an irregular 2-window front of C20 casements with glazing
bars, the first floor ones rising a short distance into the eaves. The 2 former
cottage doorways, one each end of the main block, now contain C20 glazed doors and
the left one is behind a C20 porch. The extension is set back from the main front
and has a 3-window front of C20 casements. Main roof and extension are gable-ended.
Interior of the main block has C17 carpentry detail. The left room has a roughly
soffit-chamfered crossbeam, the same finish as the oak lintel of the fireplace
(which is now lined with brick). The right room has a soffit-chamfered and step-
stopped axial beam and the oak lintel of the fireplace has a plain soffit chamfer.
The roofspace is inaccessible but the bases of straight principals show, their
scantling large enough to suggest that they belong to C17 A-frame roof trusses.
The proximity of these cottages to the kitchen garden walls (q.v.) of Fuidge Manor
suggests that these were labourer's cottages serving the big house.
