- Fairfield Cottage
House. Early C17, altered in C18 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles at front, interlocking concrete tiles at rear. 3 bays facing
S with stack in middle bay, behind axis. C20 single-storey extension to rear, with
outshuts on each aide, forming catslides with the main roof. One storey with attics.
2 C20 casements, and 2 more in flat-roofed dormers. Plain boarded door in C20 gabled
porch. Primary straight bracing. The studs forming the rear wall of the main range
have a good series of chisel-cut carpenter's assembly marks; they are more widely
spaced in the right bay than elsewhere, suggesting that the right outshut may be
original. The stack is set back, originally forming a lobby-entrance, now blocked;
probably the original stair was in front of it. Chamfered axial beams on half-height
jowls. In the right bay the beam is unstopped, and the joists are of horizontal
section; moot of them are chamfered with lamb's tongue stops, with come plain
replacements. In the left bay the beam is chamfered with lamb's tongue and notch
stops, and all the joists have lamb's tongue stops. 2 large wood-burning hearths.
Clasped purlin roof.
