9/57 Dagger Cottage
Cruck-framed cottage, dated 1653 on spice cupboard, recently renovated and
altered. Brick, thatched roof hipped at right end, with ridge chimney.
Three-bay baffle-entry plan, the 1st bay perhaps formerly a shippon. Now 1½
storeys, but formerly single-storey with 3rd bay lofted; door at junction of
1st and 2nd bays, a 3-light sliding sash with glazing bars to the right, and a
little window to the 3rd bay; deeply overhanging eaves, with inserted dormers
to 1st and 3rd bays. Left gable wall has a little window and an external
chimney stack behind the ridge; rear has doors to 1st and 3rd bays, 2 large
casements at ground floor and one in the eaves. Interior: 3 complete raised
cruck trusses of small scantling, one incorporated in the east gable wall,
others at the partitions of the middle bay, with curved slender windbraces,
that at the service end with the tie-beam cut for an inserted door on the
upper floor (suggesting that housepart was originally unceiled); service room
partition wall of posts with straight braces; spice cupboard with carved
surround lettered at the top "1653".
