SS 69 SW
12/211 Tudor Cottage
House in row of eight. Circa 1500 with late C16 and C17 alterations and circa late
C17 addition. Rendered rubble walls. Thatched roof gabled at either end where it
joins attached houses. Axial granite ashlar stack with moulded dripcourse and
Plan: originally 3-room and through passage plan, lower end to the right, inner
room rebuilt as adjoining cottage to the left. Initially the house was open to the
roof over the hall and probably lower end (but possibly from end to end) with
central hearth to hall. Hall stack inserted backing onto passage in circa late C16
but the hall very likely remained open to the roof until some time in the early-mid
C17. In the C17 a small heated rear wing was added behind the passage, probably for
kitchen purposes. At some stage the inner room was absorbed into the adjoining
house to the left.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Regular 3-window front of C19 small-paned 2-light casements
on first floor, on ground floor is C20 casement to left and C19 16-paned horned sash
to right. Central C19 plank door under slate doorhood.
Interior: at rear of passage is wide original wooden doorframe with bowed jambs and
cambered lintel. Hall has chamfered granite-framed fireplace with very high lintel.
Chamfered ceiling beam with straight-cut stops, some of the joists are also
chamfered. Behind the fireplace a section of chamfered plank and muntin screen
divides the hall from the passage. Facing the passage the hall stack has a granite
ashlar stack. Rear wing has fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel.
Roof: original roof structure survives, smoke-blackened, consisting of 2 probably
true crucks, one over the hall has only the rear blade, the front one has been cut
off by the inserted stack. The other is at the lower side of the passage - an open
truss with a partition inserted beside it, and it has a morticed cranked collar.
Threaded ridge with conventional morticed apex and trenched or threaded purlins.
The end truss in the lower gable end has a strengthening block below the apex. Over
the passage at the front a section of the roof has been plastered and this is also
blackened. At the higher end of the hall is a later partition inserted to separate
off the higher end.
