SO 38 SE
- Nos. 1 and 2, Brook Cottage
- II

House, now divided. C14 or C15 core, remodelled C17 and C18 with later
additions and alterations. Roughcast timber frame, partly of cruck
construction, on regularly coursed and dressed limestone block plinth,
higher to right; roughly coursed limestone rubble to right gable end;
slate roof. Original plan probably an open-hall house of 4 cruck-framed
bays, floored over, stack inserted and extended in C17 with eaves raised
in C18. 2 storeys. C20 casements, 6 directly below eaves and 2 on
each side of roughly central C20 half-glazed door under contemporary
gabled hood. Prominent rendered octagonal brick ridge stack with concave
sides, dripstone and capping directly above, forming baffle entry.
Capstone is a mid-C20 addition. Small red brick stack immediately
behind ridge to right. Former roof-line visible to right gable end.
Interior: No. 1 (left part). Timber frame (square panels) fragmentarily
exposed throughout including to wide single-bay C17 addition to rear on
left, which has collar and tie beam end truss. Left ground-floor room
has deep-chamfered cross beam with heavy joists and partly infilled
inglenook fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel. Oak winder staircase
to right of fireplace. First floor has wide boarded oak floor boards
and chamfered cruck blade with remains if arch-bracing visible in room
behind and to right of stack (bathroom). The apex of this cruck blade
is not visible in the roof space (plastered over and apparently truncated)
but part of the corresponding blade is visible to front. There is
apparently another cruck truss to the left of the large plaster-covered
stack and possibly also to No. 2 [access not possible at time of resurvey.
(August 1986)]. No. 2 not inspected but left ground-floor room (to
right of stack) noted as having 2 chamfered spine beams with heavy joists
and inglenook fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel. Right room (now
divided) has 2 chamfered spine beams and heavy joists.
