4/130 Cordwainer's Cottage
Cottage. Probably C17 but no dateable features visible. Plastered cob walls.
Thatch roof gabled to front of wing and left-hand end where attached to adjoining
property. Brick stack at right-hand end.
Plan: 1-room plan with small wing in front of right-hand end. The purpose of this
small room is unclear - possibly lack of space forced the builders to extend to the
front rather than sideways, alternatively the house may have been larger once.
Outbuilding wing at rear converted to domestic use.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front including one to wing projecting
to right. C20 2- and 3-light casements, the left-hand first floor window is in C18
wooden frame with square section mullions. C20 stable-type door at centre behind
open-fronted leanto porch. Inner face of wing has very small light on ground floor.
Interior: open fireplace has oven at rear, C20 replacement wooden lintel. Roof
timbers are likely to be C19, the feet of insubstantial principal rafters are
visible on the first floor resting on the wall-plates.
