TQ 59 NW STAPLEFORD ABBOTTS CURTIS MILL LANE
Cottage, late C17. Timber framed, weatherboarded, partly rendered, roofed with
handmade led. clay tiles. 2 bays aligned approx. E-W, with external brick
chimney stack at E end, aspect N. Single-storey extension at W end, c.1929.
Single storey with attics. S elevation plastered over weatherboards , 2 C20
windows. Whole building, including roof, covered with creeper. Axial beam
plain-chamfered with Lamb's tongue stops, exposed joists of vertical section,
unchamfered. Primary straight bracing. The present brick chimney stack is
oi wood-burning type, with bread oven with cast iron door to the S, but it is
later in date than the cottage, and probably replaces a timber-framed chimney
in the same pnsition. The windows, although C20, occupy original window
apertures, and are small, -in scale with the cottage. This is an unusually
unspoiled example of a simple vernacular dwelling of its period.
