7/24 Parliament Cottages
Two adjoining cottages. C17 with circa C18 wings to north-east and south-west.
Rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatched roof with gabled and hipped ends. Two
storeys. Original part at centre is a four-window range with large rendered
chimney stack on front wall with glazed door to right. Mostly C18 three-light
casements with glazing bars. Wing to north-east, at right angles, with stack at
gable end. Wing to south-west has large external stone rubble stack at gable
end and a C20 extension to west, also with thatched roof. Interior: two
chamfered ceiling beams in centre range and half-newel stairs at rear. Known as
Parliament Cottages because William III is said to have held a meeting of his
supporters here before travelling on to Berry Pomeroy Castle q.v. A stone in the
front garden states: "William Prince of Orange is said to have held his first
Parliament here in November 1688".
