2/187 Avon Cottage
House. C15-C16, extended C17. Timber framed with wattle and daub
and brick infilling, thatched roof. Single storey and attics, bays
2 : 1/2 : 2. Framing 3 panels high with straight corner braces to
centre half bay and 2 bays to right, more slender and irregular
timbering to earlier left bays. Door in left end bay under C20
propped canopy. Paned timber windows, and 3 flush dormers.
Interior probably converted to lobby entry plan when the two C17
south bays added. Left 2 bays of cruck construction, probably of a
3-bay or larger house, of which the gable crucks survive above
first floor level, and second bay couples survive to full height.
Pegged bearing rail to left bay suggests that the first floor may
have been inserted in an open bay. Long curved windbraces to
single purlin roof. Stack bay and left bays appear contemporary in
late C17 with stair behind stack with splat baluster handrail to
first floor. Fireplace blocked on ground floor but good brick
fireplace with herringbone reredos at first floor level. Third bay
contains major C17 parlour, with spine beam with rounded chamfer
stop and raised lozenge. Fourth bay probably a service room with
roughly chamfered spine beam.
