3/173 Brambles Farmhouse

- II

Cottage. C17. Timber framed, plastered with frame exposed, roofed with
concrete tiles. 2 bays facing S, with original internal stack against rear
wall, left of centre, and original full-length outshut to the rear. One storey
with attics. 2 C20 metal casements, and one more in gabled dormer. C20 door at
front of C20 gabled porch. Gablet hip at left end of roof. At the right end
this cottage abuts on a later brick house, which forms a separate dwelling. The
exposed framing of the left return shows that the rear outshut is fully jointed
and pegged, integrated with the frame of the main part. Primary straight
bracing, exposed externally and internally. In the right bay, chamfered axial
beam, and plain joists of square section jointed to it with soffit tenons with
diminished haunches. Large wood-burning hearth facing to right. Floor
structure ceiled in left bay. The concrete roof tiles, at the time of survey
(November 1985) were well weathered, difficult to distinguish from handmade red
clay tiles.
