2/202 Tendera (formerly listed as Nos 1
and 2 Tendera Cottage)
House. C17. Rubble and cob walls, painted and partly rendered at the front and at
the rear but some of the rear and right hand walls are unpainted stone rubble of
very small size and cob to 1st floor. Wheat reed thatched roofs with eyebrows over
front windows and brick chimneys over gable ends.
T-shaped plan. Possibly has always been T shaped with larger room or originally 2
rooms on the left, hall/kitchen on the right and service wing at right angles to
rear middle. The through passage is blocked at the rear, right of the angle with
the wing, and it is possible that the house was originally L shaped and that the
left hand room has been widened to the left in the C18 or there may have been an
unheated central room. The stair and some of the beams are Cl8 so clearly there was
some remodelling then. The integral service wing makes the other possibility of this
having been a 3 room plan with the hall in the middle unlikely.
Two storeys. Slightly irregular 3-window east front. 1st floor windows grouped
closer. Two ground floor windows left of doorway and one to the right. Six panel
door with slate roofed gable porch. The windows are circa early C19 contemporary
with the door and are small pane hornless sashes with marginal panes.
Interior is little altered since the C19. The earliest features are the large
hearth in the right hand room with straight chamfered and stopped oak lintel, a beam
with similar detail in the left hand room and the oak roof structure with chamfered
trusses and collars (joints not visible). Circa mid C18 dog-leg closed string stair
with column turned balusters to upper flight and landing and moulded beams probably
This is a very unspoiled C17 building with an unusual plan.
