SX85NW Delamore and
6/26 Orchardleigh


House divided into 2 cottages. Circa late C17, divided into 2 cottages
probably in early C19. Local stone rubble, rear wing rendered. Grouted
scantle slate roof with gabled ends. Delamore to right has roof reclad in
asbestos slates. Rendered stack at right hand gable end and a rendered axial
stack near left hand gable end. Rendered projecting stack of gable end of
rear wing.
Plan: Probably originally one house. The main range of 2 principal rooms
with a central through passage, the right had room heated from an axial stack
to the left and a small unheated room at the left end. Behind the left hand
principal room a coeval wing of on large room probably the kitchen with a
gable end fireplace. In the C19 the house was divided into 2 cottages, the
partition on the right hand side of the passage was removed, the passage rear
doorway blocked and a small entrance lobby created at the front of the
passage. Another doorway was inserted in front of the left hand stack
creating an entrance lobby for the left hand cottage. Behind the right hand
cottage there is an attached farm building which has been converted in the
late C20 to extend the living accommodation.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window range of 2 and 3-light casements,
those to the right (Orchardleigh) are circa late Cl9 or C20 2-light
casements, those to the left (Delamore) are late C20 2-light casements with
small panes on the ground floor and circa early C19 3-light casements on the
first floor with diamond-shaped leaded panes. One small single light window
at the centre of the ground floor. The original doorway (to Orchardleigh) to
the right of centre has a C20 glazed and panelled door with an earlier canopy
on shaped brackets. The doorway towards the left hand end is probably a Cl9
insertion and has a wooden lattice porch and a C20 panelled door.
C19 and C20 casements at the rear and circa late C19 plank door into a rear
wing. Interior: The right hand room of the main range (Orchardleigh) has
chamfered cross-beams with run-out stops, a blocked fireplace and the
partition on the right hand side of the passage has been removed. Delamore
to the left has cross-beams with run out stops in its larger room in the
front range and similar beams in the rear wing; its small unheated room to the
left has 2 moulded(ovolo and hollow with convex stops) joists reused as posts
to support a beam.
Roof: Elm trusses with cambered collars lapped and pegged to the faces of the
principals which have mortice and tenoned apexes. The right hand gable may
have been raised which would suggest that the existing circa late C17 roof is
not the original.
