9/72 Rhododendron Cottage
Cruck-framed cottage, C17 or earlier, probably re-walled and perhaps raised
in C18, extended in C19; recently renovated. Whitewashed brick, thatched
roof with a chimney behind the ridge at the junction of the 1st and 2nd
bays, double chimney at left gable. Three bays, one and 1½ storeys; board
door at junction of 1st and 2nd bays, a 12-pane sliding sash window to the
left, another to the right, and a little 4-pane sliding sash to the 3rd
bay, all these with simple brick labels above them; right gable has small
sliding sash at ground floor, a larger one near to the apex; rear has 3
small sliding sashes at ground floor, another in the eaves of the 2nd bay.
Interior: housepart in 2nd bay has a full cruck truss at each end, both
with (raised) tie beams, collar, and yoke, both probably altered in C18 by
addition of spurs and dorsals to raise the eaves; at which time the
housepart ceiling was inserted and the collar of the 2nd truss severed to
make a door at 1st floor level; upper part of 1st truss and parts of ridge
in centre of 2nd bay have smoke blackening; staves in situ between collar
and yoke of 1st truss.
