4/15 Wedgewood Cottage

- II

House, probably a former farmhouse of which the lower end has been demolished.
Late medieval, altered late C16 or C17, with C20 additions at rear. Rendered stone
or cob. Steeply pitched thatched roof, half-hipped to left, fully hipped to right.
Plan consists of a cross-passage with single large room (probably the hall) to
left; a lower room to right may have been demolished. 2 storeys (although the
upper storey is almost certainly a later insertion). In the centre of the front
wall a large projecting chimney-stack with set-off weathering courses and a tapered
top, the latter having an added shaft above it. To right a doorway with chamfered
round-headed durn frame and C20 single storeyed porch. 2 ground-storey windows of
different heights to left of stack, one window on either side of it in second
storey. All windows have C19 wood casements, those in second storey with small
oblong panes. Plan consists of a cross-passage with single large room to left.
Interior detail much altered, but stud-and-panel partition to left of passage
retains one chamfered stud. Ground-storey room has chamfered ceiling-beam and
chamfered lintel with step-stops. Roof has blackened timbers. 2 trusses with
threaded purlins and ridge, the south-eastern truss retaining its cambered collar-
beam. Hip rafter, many of the common rafters and some of the thatching spars
remain. Both trusses show notches for former inserted partitions. The house has a
dramatic appearance externally and forms the focal point of the village street.
