8/14 Ye Old Cottage,
House. Late C17 with remains of earlier timber-frame. Sandstone rubble
with some timber-framing and slate roof. Two storeys. West wall of two
bays, with rebated and chamfered mullioned windows of three and four
lights on the ground floor and windows with plain reveals on the first
floor. Above an addition against the north gable wall is some exposed
framing, including a tie-beam truss with two collars. The north gable
wall has projecting chimney stack. To its right is a chamfered doorway,
with a 2-light mullioned window on the first floor and an attic window
with plain reveals. Part of the east wall has been rebuilt. To the left
is a 2-light mullioned window. In the centre are external stone steps
to a first floor doorway, and at the right is a doorway. Interior: the
east wall contains the end wall of a demolished timber-framed range which
once existed to the east. On the ground floor are two principal posts
and a rail. Visible on the first floor are the tie-beam and the lower
parts of the principals. The ground floor ceiling has exposed chamfered
joists. A timber-framed dividing wall is now broken through but contains
no evidence for an original doorway, suggesting that the wing may have
contained service rooms entered from a hall. A stone fireplace on the
ground floor has splayed jambs and a chamfered and stopped bressummer.
