SX 88 NE
3/127 Cherry Tree Cottage
House. Circa early C16 origins, remodelled in the C17, substantial late C20
alterations still in progress at time of survey (1987). Whitewashed rendered cob and
stone ; thatched roof, gabled at left end, hipped at right end ; left end and axial
stacks with rendered shafts.
Plan: single depth plan, 4 rooms wide, originating as an open hall house of the late
medieval period. Internal partitions have been altered but there may have been a
cross passage to the rear of the hall axial stack (right of centre), marked by a
modern porch and doorway.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front, C20 front door to left of centre
leading into stair hall, C20 porch and front door to right of centre possibly on site
of early entrance into cross passage. Fenestration of C20 1; 2- and 3-light timber
casements with glazing bars.
Interior: Much altered but the room to the right of the cross passage appears to have
been the C17 hall with a chamfered step-stopped crossbeam, exposed joists and a large
open fireplace with a chamfered timber lintel, granite rubble jambs and a decayed
brick-lined bread oven. Chamfered cross beems to extreme right and left hand rooms.
First floor undergoing modernization at time of survey.
Roof: 1 smoke-blackened side-pegged jointed cruck to the right of the axial stack,
below a late C20 roof, the trusses over the left end of the house also below late C20
timbers, are late C17 collar rafter trusses with lap dovetailed collars.
A roadside house of medieval origins.
