SS 60 SE
Nos. 66 and 68

Pair of houses. Circa late C17 or early C18 considerably altered in C20. Plastered
and rendered probably cob and stone rubble walls. Hipped thatched roof. 2 brick
stacks, one at left end and one axial.
Plan: original plan unclear due to C20 alternations - may originally have been one
house or pair of 2-room plan cottages. 1-room plan wing added at front of right-
hand cottage (No. 66).
Exterior: 2 storeys with attic. Regular 5-window front of which central part
projects slightly, with wing at front of right-hand end. No. 68 to left has small-
paned C20 casements to left-hand part of 2 and 3 lights and C20 part-glazed door to
the right under doorhood of rough granite lintel with granite pillar. The right-
hand part of the house (forming the central part of the whole building) projects up
to first floor level and has on each floor a C19 3-light casement with ogee-headed
taller central light. In the early C20 decorative high relief plasterwork was
applied to the surface of this projecting section in a trailing floral motif. In
the gable above this section is a Diocletian window. No. 66 to the right has C20 2-
light small-paned casements with similar door and doorhood to No. 68 to the left.
Wing projects from right-hand end.
Interior inaccessible at time of survey but believed to contain original ceiling
beams and possibly other features.
