(West Side)

16/137 No. 112

II

Cottage, mid C17. Clunch, coursed in parts, with a steeply
pitched roof of buff pantiles, originally thatched. Ridge stack
of gault brick with a string course. One storey and attics.
Two dormers are partly rebuilt and enlarged as are the two
windows and doorway at ground floor. In the rear wall, however,
are two C20 windows in the original splayed openings. Inside
the cottage has three rooms or bays. The centre bay is heated
by an inglenook hearth of clunch and is divided from the service
bay by a partly rebuilt framed partition wall. The parlour has
a later hearth, probably C18. The C17 floor framing in both
hall and parlour is now exposed. The main beams have C17 stop
chamfers. The roof is of side purlin construction, the rafters
are pegged at the apex and the principal rafters joined by
collars.

(Vernacular Architecture 1971).
