TQ 54 NE
5/139 No 99 (Woodside Cottage)
House. Probably C17. Framed construction, the ground floor underbuilt in
brick. The framing, of slender scanthing, is exposed on the first floor
centre and right, the left hand end of the front elevation is tile-hung to the
first floor; peg-tile roof; brick stack.
Plan: The house faces approximately north and is slightly set back from the
road. 3-room lobby entrance plan with the entrance to left of centre facing
the axial stack. Details of plan unclear at time of survey (1988) as there was
no access to the interior or rear but the 2 left hand rooms are probably
heated from back-to-back fireplaces with an unheated lower and service room to
the right (west).
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front with a C20 gabled porch to
the lobby entrance, the porch re-using old timbers. 3 ground floor late C20
small-pane timber casements; first floor window left and C19 or C20 2-light
timber casement, 4 panes per light, the 4 other first floor windows C19 or C20
4-pane. The roof is half-hipped at ends. Rebuilt triple shafts to the axial
Interior: Inaccessible at time of survey but may retain C17 features. The
roof construction may also be of historic interest and an internal inspection
could necessitate revising the suggested dating.
A 1957 photograph in the National Monument Record shows that there have been a
number of alterations to the exterior since that date.
