10/127 Barton Cottage
Formerly known as Nos. 4 and 5
Detached house. Early C16 with C17 and later alterations. Cob and stone mix,
plastered, under tarred shingle half-hipped roof. Formerly a 3-room, through-passage
plan with rear wing to upper end. 2 end stacks and an axial stack (C19) towards
right-hand end; the inserted axial stack to heat hall, which backs on to through-
passage, is visible only within the roof space; this and the others with brick
shafts. 2 storeys.
Front: 5-window range; 1st floor windows are 2 and 3-light casements, one of them
with ovolo-moulded surround and mullions; 2 are C19 and barred; four 2-and 3-light
casement windows to ground floor; door to passage slightly right of centre, under
canopy of circa 1960. 1- and 2-light windows to rear, 2 of them C19. Hipped
extension to right of house, now used as garage.
Interior: some beams to higher end look reset, chamfered with step stops; massive
chamfered lintel to (redundant) hall fireplace, with lower-end jettied out and
resting on a bressumer slightly above and forward of it. Chamfered axial beam with a
variant of pyramid stops.
Roof: 2 hip crucks, 2 jointed crucks with diagonal ridge piece throughout entire
length; all smoke-blackened, most heavily over higher-end. Some original rafters
survive adjacent to axial stack. These fragments of the medieval roof are no longer
functional, and survive under an early C20 replacement roof.
