5/166 Bampfylde Cottage

Almshouses, now cottages. C17 remodelled C19 and C20. Coursed rubble volcanic
trap under blue Welsh slate roof gabled-end with stone copings. Stone end stacks
with moulded weatherings possibly capped in C20 brick. Symmetrical 2-storey
window front to road. Tall lancet to each storey far left and far right probably
Cl7 embrasure with eccentric C19 brick projecting sills and 2 pane C19 wood
casement under arched head. The first floor heads with arched leading. Each
side of central entrance door and porch is a less high lancet of unknown date
with C20 brick sill. Slated gabled C19 porch overly picturesque for building of
this date having a shaped open wood truss with the beam of pierced trefoils
supported on shaped posts - now cut away at bottom and carried on C20 brickwork.
Above a 2-light chamfered window with C19 half dormer slated roof, smaller repeat
of the porch. Rear to churchyard depressed central bay under a gabled dormer as
to front. C20 timber casement window below. Two 2-light windows to first floor,
two 3-light windows to ground, that to the right with glazing bars and some
leaded coloured glass.
This building was listed under the same name in 1982, and is apparently the same
as that listed as "Almshouses" in 1952. In the meantime it lost the stone
inscriptions described in the earlier list.
Interior not inspected.
Included for group value.
