7/118 End Cottage


House. Late medieval, altered in C19. Timber framed, plastered with some
painted brick, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 2 bays facing NW,
comprising the originally storeyed service bay, and part of the open hall, of a
typical medieval house plan, and short extension to left. Early C17 stack in
middle, against rear wall. 2 storeys. Ground floor faced with painted brick,
one C20 and one C19 casement. First floor, 2 C19 horizontal sashes of 12
lights, and one plain light at half-floor level. One plain boarded door, one
half-glazed 4-panel door. Jowled posts, heavy studding. The left bay has a
chamfered axial beam with mortices and wattle grooves for a former partition
between 2 service rooms, and plain joists of horizontal section framed round a
blocked stair trap in the right rear corner, and some original floorboards. In
the front wallplate are diamond mortices and a shutter rebate of a former
unglazed window. The internal partition has curved tension braces trenched into
the right side, with a clear series of inscribed carpenter's marks, and in the
roof some original wattle and daub infill. The right bay has a large
wood-burning hearth facing to right, with a plain salt recess at the back, a
deeply chamfered axial beam, and plain joists of vertical section which have
been raised above their original positions. The internal surfaces have been
sand-blasted, which has destroyed the sooting normally deposited in an open
hall. The roof of the left bay has been rebuilt in the C19, with a ridge board.
The roof of the right bay has been rebuilt in clasped purlin form in the C17,
re-using one smoke-blackened rafter of the medieval roof as a purlin. The
building extended further to the right originally. RCHM 23.
