7/90 Moor Cottage
House. Early Cl7, extended in C18. Timber framed and brick, plastered, roofed
with handmade red plain tiles. 2 bays facing SW, with original rear stack in
left bay, original rear stair tower to right of it, and C18 stack in rear right
corner. C18 one-bay extension to left, and C20 flat-roofed single-storey
entrance lobby and garage beyond. 2 storeys with attics. Ground floor, one C20
casement, one late C19 sash of 16 lights, one early C19 sash of 16 lights.
First floor, 3 C20 casements. One more in lean-to dormer. Ground floor is
faced with plastered brick at front and both returns. Exceptionally steeply
pitched roof. The ground floor has boxed axial beams and one transverse beam
which is probably a modern replacement, and a large wood-burning hearth. On the
first floor the framing is exposed internally - jowled posts, near-straight
tension braces trenched inside the studding, face-halved and bladed scarf in
rear wallplate, chamfered axial beams with lamb's tongue stops, plain joists of
square section. Clasped purlin roof with arched collars. The left bay has
unjowled posts and primary straight bracing. The stair tower retains the
original stair with octagonal newel post from ground to attic, a rare feature.
Both storeys are of exceptional height.
