7/198 Anchoring Cottage
Cottage. C18, refurbished in late C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings,
some stone rubble and brick patching; stone rubble or cob stacks topped with C19
brick; thatch roof.
2-room plan cottage facing south-south-west, say south. The left end is terraced
into the hillside and the left room is larger than the right room. Staircase
between the rooms seems to be blocking an original through passage. Each room has a
gable-end stack. 2 storeys.
Regular but not symmetrical 4-window front of late C19 and C20 replacement casements
with glazing bars. Doorway right of centre contains a C20 plank door and the window
above is blind. Roof is gable-ended. Some of the rear windows have C19 brick
arches over.
Interior is largely the result of late C19 modernisation. The left room has a C18
crossbeam with neat soffit chamfers. Both fireplaces are blocked by C19
chimneypieces. Most of the joinery detail is C19 but a couple of the doors are C18
and hung on H-hinges. Roof not inspected.
